Barielle Jess' Champagne Toast and Something Extra...

So I wore this for a little under a week. Let me tell you it's absolutely gorgeous in the bottle! On the nail it's pretty, but falls a bit flat. It's an icy blueish/lavender color with pink glitter. It's biggest downfall once applied it it's very gritty and the pink glitter/shimmer doesn't really shine. I mean you can catch a bit of glimmer but the polish kind of soaks it up. That made me sad because I loved it for the pink glitter.

Anyhow this was 2 coats.

Then a couple of day's later I stumbled upon Cover Girl's Amethyst Mist. It's a sheer purple base with silver glitter and larger holographic/opalescent hexagon glitter. It look like it would go nicely over JCT.

I liked it. The silver glitter disbursed on the nail just fine, however the hexagon glitter was a pain in the butt. It was hard to get any on the brush no matter how much I loaded it up. I managed though. It dried fairly quickly so that was a plus.

So the main focus was on my right thumb. I think you can see the hexagon glitter the best here. I also got he most on that thumb haha!

So there you have it. My manicure from the past week. My nails are naked and short right now, and I have no clue what to paint them. I was going to do it earlier in the day, but I just felt icky. Oh well.

Thanks for reading!

  1. I always does something that stands out when mine are short or a vampy one. :)
    I have some Barielle but a few that are supposed to be glitter. The formula however kind of covers the sparkly bit. :(
