Nail of The Week
Nail Polish Brand: China Glaze
Color: Blue Sparrow (Three Coats)
Base: Orly Bonder
Top Coat: Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
Note about the China Glaze Blue Sparrow. While the color looks very pretty in the bottle. I am not 100% sure how I feel about this color. When I began to apply the color, the polish was very runny. Now that the nails are dry the color looks dull, it does not look as sparkly as I expected or even as sparkly as it looks in the bottle. It almost looks like textured blue nail polish. Not blue, glitter nail polish.
I wonder if I should use a different top coat for this polish? The next time I try it I am going to use a different top coat. One that leaves a higher shine then Seche Vite. I will also try different combinations with this polish. Maybe a blue polish underneath and then one coat of the Blue Sparrow on top?
I really would love to make it work because it just looks so pretty in the bottle and even before it dries into its dull matte state.
Until next time, Ciao!! xoxo

UPDATE: I ended up figuring out how to best use this color and I now love it. When I first used it I just applied one too many coats and I am using the Sally Hansen Acrylic Nails top coat and it looks awesome.
