Hello gentle readers.
What is is about glitter? I tell myself that I have enough for three lifetimes then I see a new one, go all full metal magpie and have to have it.
It's a sickness. One I am still feeding, if my recent polish purchases are any indication.
But enough about me and my twisted polish obsessions.
This is about OPI The Living Daylights, a layering glitter comprised of a thick, silky suspension base and medium hex glitter in silver, copper and teal. As far as glitter goes, this one feels very different. There is a more sophisticated vibe to this; the colours, the simple, clean statement that it makes isn't per the usual. I swatched this in one coat over OPI Live and Let Die. Topped with a little Gelous and Seche Vite, this comes out incredibly glossy and sparkly.
The formula on this is pretty much chunky glitter typical. The base is very smooth and thick and plenty of glitter hitches a ride on the brush, making application slightly labor intensive with some patting and coaxing but it isn't an ordeal. Dry time is good, some Gelous and Seche Vite make sure that this is glossy and shiny to the max.
So, my glitter mania continues unabated. I think that it is time to throw in the towel, admit that it isn't ending anytime soon and just roll with it. Probably a good time to get zen, since I have more glitter to come.
A lot more glitter to come.
Did you pick up this sleek, glamorous sparkler for yourself? What do you think of it? Like it? If you are considering purchasing it, The Living Daylights is out there, in stores and salons now so go grab it, you magpies.
Thank you so much for coming by and reading. Have a terrific Friday and may your polish never bubble.
