76. OPI Bring on the Bling

I had to use flash to get an idea of what is happening here. Also check out the awesome Olympic shot in the background!

My cuticles didn’t like the flash so much. From top: Bring on the Bling, Glow Up Already, Spark de Triomphe, Sparkleicious.

So I decided that a solid base coat was going to be my new method for glitters. I have to say that I am really impressed with how this worked out! This mani lasted for days without the big hideous chunks coming off, which would happen if I put the glitter right over the base coat. Mostly though, glitter polish application is still a pain in the ass.

Thoughts: Well, you can see that the 3 gold-ish polishes all look the same under the flash. They are all really similar, but Bring on the Bling is a much warmer tone. Sparkleicious feels like Mardi Gras but there isn’t any green. They are all fun and sparkly, but I might have to try and re-do this manicure later to photograph properly. They all had the same staying power so I can probably do this on a wheel.
Verdict: Keeping them all for now, will revisit the gold ones later to get better photos.
