So this amazing glitter bomb just might be my favorite mani to date! I started off with a base of China Glaze’s Angel Wings. Beginning at the base of the nail and going about halfway down is China Glaze’s Medallion. I then dabbed on a little China Glaze Heat of the Moment from there to the end. Finally, I finished everything off with a swipe of Salley Hansen Cha-ching on the tip!
I can’t stop staring. There’s so much sparkle when I wiggle my fingers — they really do look like they’re on fire!
That close-up — GAH GLITTERRRR!!! And yes, it’s totally cool for a 28-year-old woman to own a Mockingjay pin. What?! It was like $6 on Amazon AND had prime shipping.
Also, fun fact: China Glaze is totally to blame for my nail polish addiction thanks to its Hunger Games collection. Was that really less than two years ago?! I picked up two bottles (Smoke and Ashes and Foie Gras) from the heavily picked over Sally Beauty display. I was kinda disappointed with what I got so I started looking around online to see what I had missed and man there were swatches and swatches and more swatches — not just of the Capital Colors collection, either, but all SORTS of nail polishes that I MUST. HAVE. RIGHT. NOW. Being able to “sample” before I bought by browsing on blogs was huge for me. And so down the rabbit hole I went… compiling lists of must-haves every time a new collection launched and growing my stash from a puny five bottles to nearly 300 now. Oops!
