Sparkliest Nails Ever?

I was having one of those moments before going away a couple of weeks ago when I just have no idea what polish to wear. In those situations, I tend to do one of three things – go for a colour I’ve bought but not yet worn, go for a tried and tested colour that I love, or do some layering. I ended up doing two of these!

You may remember me mentioning in my post about the Orly manicure course that I picked up Space Cadet and Galaxy Girl from last year’s Cosmic FX collection. Since I knew Space Cadet was a dupe for MAC Mean and Green/Accessorize Aztec, I thought I’d try out Galaxy Girl. I didn’t take any photos of that on it’s own ’cause I painted my nails in the evening and had no natural light, but I just wasn’t impressed enough with it. It wasn’t as sparkly as I’d hoped it would be.

Inglot to the rescue! I applied two coats of Inglot XL1 (an incredibly sparkly top coat) over Galaxy Girl, and the result was something that I couldn’t stop staring at all weekend. Especially when the sun came out!

What’s the sparkliest nail polish you’ve ever worn?

P.S: Did you see my Abstract easy peasy nail tutorial the other day? A lovely reader and fellow blogger Alex recreated it here and she smashed it! I think she did a better job than me :) be sure to take a look!

  2. Wow that’s gorgeous! The sparkliest I’ve worn is probably either Max Factor’s Angel Nails, or GOSH’s Green Hawaii, or Accessorize’s Mermaid :D This is lovely though, I’ve never tried any Orly or Inglot xxx

  3. I was going to email you or something to ask you how you would interpret the line “fingernails that shine like justice”, but then I saw this and realized it was unnecessary.
