NOTD - Girly Glitter!

While on my Ajax run yesterday, I also picked up this little "gem". This particular color is called Be-Jeweled, from a new collection from Sally Hansen called Gem Crush. It's a light lavender purple micro glitter with large pink circular glitter that also flash holographic.

This photo shows the color most accurately.
The brush in this bottle is really weird. It's very wide, about the entire width of my pinky nail, and also very short with a curved end. It surprised me the first time I saw it, and I thought it was going to suck, but it actually worked very well for applying glitter polish. I applied two coats for these photos. Although you can kind of see the whites of my nail in the photo, you really can't see it at all in person; the glitter looks totally opaque.
The pink glitter is holographic from some angles.

It dries pretty quickly, and I think that's thanks to the brush; I didn't have to do a zillion coats to get it to cover evenly. I did do one coat of topcoat, but the glitter ate it up and it looks pretty matte once it dries. It's still insanely sparkly though. It feels gritty and looks bumpy, but that doesn't bother me.

Blingy glitter is not normally my style, but I think I'm starting to convert. This glitter, especially with its girly purple and pink color scheme, just puts a smile on my face. I'm sure that will turn into a scowl when I go to take it off, but we'll cross that bridge when we get to it...
