Finally, a use for those nightmarishly chalky Essie light pinks! This is two coats of South of the Hi'Way (which is, to be fair, the least problematic of the lot), with not one, not two, but three Sally Girl minis in silver, rose and iridescent glitter whacked on over it. The silver and rose are especially lovely, with dual sized hexaganol bling bits suspended in a clear base. You can see a picture of the trio in all their multi sparkly goodness here.
Application is less than perfect, but then I was in the back of the car en route to Mickey Bubbles' concert last Saturday night when painting these nails. I can tell you right now that the hairpin sliproad that takes you down from the N7 and catapults you onto the southbound M50 is no manicure's friend.
Now, unless you have an understanding pal in the States to post Sally Girl products home to you or manage to swap for them on Make Up Alley as I did, these little bottles of blinging goodness are hard to come by. Get the look with Essence Space Queen for multi-coloured mini glitter and either Models Own Silver Spangle or China Glaze Techno for silver hexagonal chunkiness. China Glaze Doll's House is packed full of rose-gold hexy bits, or alternatively you could try Eyeko Chi-Chi for a less ostentatious rose glitter fix.
