Marry A Millionaire To Chase Away The Winter Blues

My double glitter giveaway ends this Sunday. Go here to enter. Good luck!

Lost in the Holiday foray was a China Glaze collection called Eye Candy. Here’s a smashing purple glitter from that collection…

I rather like this purple and silver glitter called ‘Marry A Millionaire’.

It is depressing to find all the Holiday decorations whisked away and the world becomes a bit gray. ‘Marry A Millionaire’ is just the polish to brighten my day…

This polish is a complex collection of purple glitter in two different sizes; micro and super-micro. Even the bar glitter, which flashes from teal/green to silver, is tiny. There is just the right balance of these glitters, so on the nails, it fractals light and becomes very, very sparkly. I did need 4 coats to get this much coverage. And, even though I found the polish to be a tad thick, as many glitter polishes can be, it dried faster than many do.

Photos are not doing the sparkle justice…

Interestingly enough, I found that ‘Marry A Millionaire’ didn’t eat (absorb) top coat as a lot of glitter polishes tend to do. I used one coat of Color Club’s Vivid Color Intensifying Top Coat and the texture felt smooth to the touch. On the other hand, the second day of wearing this polish, it was chipping. Or rather, it was flaking off in large pieces on my index fingers and my right thumb. I was able to peel all the polish off my index finger but stopped there as I didn’t want to take a layer off my own nail.

Of course, the peeling could have been due to the base coat I used from Wet ‘n Wild. It’s one I’ve had forever but still, I have been using it for weeks and haven’t had that issue before.

So, as I mourn the end of cheery Holiday decorations, I find that I can easily find solace in glitters and pretty nail polishes. And those are things that never go away.

Am I the only one that finds the world a bit duller when the Holiday decorations come down?
