2true Glitterati NOTD

The wonderful people over at 2true have just brought out a new trio of cute glitter polishes and I was lucky enough to get one sent to me! I absolutely love all glitter polishes and the ones for layering are great for adding a touch of glam to any colour. 

I have Amethyst which is Shade 4. It contains a mix of small and big hexagons of violet and rose champagne sequins. The other two are Shade 5 - Turquoise, a mix of blue and green glitters and Shade 6 - Rose Gold, a mix of pink and gold glitters. 

Being named Amethyst I wondered if the polish would be highlighted more over a deep purple shade (OPI Siberian Nights) or black. So, to test this theory without actually painting my nails and waiting for them to dry I did a little test on some card. 

Not too much difference but you can see the violet glitters a little easier over the black so I picked that. To be honest, most glitter polishes look great over a cream black base - I used two coats of Rimmel I heart Lasting Finish in 080 Black Cab. 

I don't think I've had all my nails the same exact colour for ages and so an accent nail was called for. 

One layer of the glitter polish is sufficient, but being a cheerleader and glitter running through my veins, I need a double layer. 

Two layers did the trick for me and every time I catch the sparkle from my hands I feel like I wanna party :P

The contrasting white (Revlon 050 White On White) looked a little too plain for me, so I added more glitter! This time in the form of hand-cut flakes in the name of Models Own Snowflakes. 

So, all in all, this is a very pretty polish and great for summer nights out!

Currently available in most Superdrug stores at £1.99 each or all 3 for £5.00 - bargainous!

Love love and glitterlove!!
