So this is kind of a fun mani I did a few months ago. While perusing the shelves at Walmart, I came upon this very cool glitter topper, Pop-arazi by Hard Candy.
* Drools * I know, right? This polish is filled with small circular red, black, light blue, navy blue, light green, and light pink matte glitters. Essentially, a party in a bottle.
Now one thing I have discovered about myself is that I absolutely love glitter toppers. Actually, now that I think about it, my helmer has more glitter polishes in it than any other kind of polish (matte's, cream's, etc.). But alas, another thing I have discovered is I am horrible at picking out base coats that complement my glitters. Yes, now you see my dilemma. So after my last glitter topper combo disaster (what I like to call my "nail fail"), I knew I had to pick the right undies for this polish...
..and I think I did pretty well this time. I decided to fight glitter with glitter and paired Hard Candy Pop-arazi with Milani Silver Dazzle. Two coats of Silver dazzle gave me complete coverage and TONS of shine. On top, I used Pop-arazi to do a glitter gradient and then finished this mani off with one coat of Seche Vite.
What do you guys think of this combo?
Do you have a formula for pairing glitter's with base coats?
