Happy Memorial Day if you live in the States! We’re celebrating our long weekend a few hours away with my mom. This is always a fairly meaningful holiday in my family. So many of us have served or are serving in all branches of the military – uncles, both grandpas, cousins.
A rare snap of my stoic paternal Grandpa smiling in his Air Force uniform.
In honor of the holiday, I put on this patriotic crelly glitter from KB Shimmer.
Just like most crellies, you can get it opaque in 2-3 coats – this is 2. Obviously I needed 3. Great, smooth self-leveling formula.
Shall we talk about nails you can see from space? This full-coverage glitter is so freaking twinkly. It’s opaque in two easy coats.
This greyed-out dark purple is my jam. It’s a crelly formula that’s thick enough to only need two coats, but is still sheer enough for the glitters to work. It’s the usual fabulous KB Shimmer formula.
This beautiful raisin holographic is probably more appropriate for fall but I don’t care. It’s beautiful, opaque in 1-2 coats, and makes me very happy.
This one is another polish from a mystery pack. It’s a very pretty rose jam packed with holographic glitters. Best in 2 coats.
I love a deep purple any time of year. This one is full of silver microglitter and is opaque in 2-3 coats.
This pretty holographic has a really dark blue base. Neither photo does this one justice – I need to start taking my holo and glitter pics outside. This one has a lovely formula and is opaque in 2 coats.
Without flash & with flash.
This full-coverage glitter is a beauty. I see mostly pink and holographic glitters and, perhaps, some flakies. Pictured is two coats, but I will probably wear three.
This was an indie holiday release, so it’s likely it isn’t available anymore. But there is an almost-dupe out there, which I will post about tomorrow!
The lighting in this photo doesn’t do it justice. It’s a dusty rose with a strong linear holographic that is really distracting on a sunny day. In a good way. Best in 2 coats.
Without flash and with flash.
This lovely has a greeny-gray base with a linear holographic shift as well as scattered holographic glitters. It’s lovely and opaque in 2 coats.
