Cupid Glitter-St. Valentine’s Day Manicure Marathon – Day 8

What’s up for Day 8??  A vibrant, red glitter layering polish.

‘Dark Red Glitter’, by NYX, will make any coordinating base coat POP!  I didn’t layer it, this time, because I wanted to see if, by chance, I could get an opaque look. Not going to happen though.  Here’s 4 coats and you can still see VNL…

I was surprised, that with all the glitter in the polish, that not much of it transferred to the nail.  However, since it really is meant to be a layering polish, you don’t really want a ton of glitter or, you end up with it looking garish. And on that note, here’s my rename of this color: ‘Cupid’s Trail.’

 ‘Dark Red Glitter’ has a faint, pink base with pink and fuchsia glitter within.  This polish stayed on hard for the 2 days I wore it.  It was a bit of a pistol to remove, however.  I’ll save this one to spice up another color.  It has great potential and the glitter is over the top sparkly.

Sometimes I will take a layering polish like ‘Dark Red Glitter’ and put it on a couple of days old mani to spruce it up until I have time for a complete mani.  Do you do this too?
