Lit from Within: Plan B is usually Glitter!

Plan B is usually Glitter!

I found a few of these Cutie Girl polishes at the Dollar Tree.  I couldn't find anything about them online, but, hey, it's a dollar.  So they came home with me.  I like this purple.  It's a little sheer and slightly frosty, but that's ok.  There are 2 coats in these pix, but if I were wearing it without the glitter, I would have used three.

When I was trying to find a good underwear for Girly Bits Street Magic, this was my first attempt. It didn't work at all - all I could see was a small smattering of holo glitter, but not that much, and no color change. So, rather than take it all off, I decided to find something else to do with it.

Ok, I'm coming around to glitter.  I never really liked it before - seemed like too much of a hassle, especially for someone like me who changes polish every day.  But the Target polish remover dip-it with acetone has changed that for me - it's so easy to remove glitter with that thing - and the plastic bristles don't get gooped up like the old sponge inserts did.  I added a little Zoya Remove franken (acetone + glycerine + water) to it, and I don't even get the white hands anymore.

This is Sinful Colors Frenzy,  purple/teal glitter.  This was 2 coats-ish, maybe a little dabbing.  I didn't want it to be completely opaque.  I actually like a little polish showing through around the cuticle.  I'm so fashion-forward, y'all.

I've only recently discovered Sinful Colors, but I'm a convert.  You really do get a lot of bang for your buck at $1.99 a bottle.  Watch for the occasional half-price sale, and it's even better.

Wanna see something even cooler?  Mattify!

I'm sure there is a scientific explanation for why this looks so neat, but it just does.  MOAR glitter, please.  What's your fave glitter?  Matted?
