So far we've read and watched Henry V, Richard III, Much Ado About Nothing (modern film), Midsummer's Night Dream (modern film) and King Lear. Three hours every Tuesday. So, on Tuesdays I wear glitter, because on Tuesdays I spend half my evening craftily picking the glitter off my nails. It had been a subconscious thing, but I realized recently it has become a habit. Glitter my nails the night before, spend the next night picking it off. "DON'T PICK AT YOUR NAILS!!" I hear you yelling at me, I just can't help it.
Soooooooo of course on Monday this week, I put on one of my new China Glaze glitters: Material Girl.
|Oh! The sparkles!|
LOOK AT IT. It's a glorious glitter. Glory aside, it was a complete pain in the ass to apply - so thick and goopy. I had to use thinner in it almost immediately. Material Girl is PACKED with glitter. PACKED I TELL YOU. I added some thinner to try and help thin the base, it was a somewhat futile attempt but it did help a tiny bit.
This is 3 coats of Material Girl topped with THREE coats of OTD. I don't have any glitter smoothing topcoat so I ended up stopping at 3 coats of OTD because I could not eliminate the gritty. I need to get a bottle of Gelous because I really want to be able to wear this more often. It's so pretty.
