I’m not sure what happened but I woke up one day and suddenly developed an obsession with glitter nail polishes. If you were to look through my stash, you would find that I love cremes but I do make exceptions for shimmers if they are red. Now I’m starting to add some glitters to my collection and came across a few fun shades from LA Splash that I’m loving… and they are cheap!
I almost walked right past the display, my local Ulta had the LA Splash display at ground level but I hunched down and spent some time checking out their display. I found they have a lot of glitters in the line and ended up picking 3 up that night. At $3.99 a bottle, how could I say no? Plus the $5 coupon in the new issue of Glamour was an added incentive.
Please excuse these images and the application. I didn’t realize this until recently but sunny days are really your BFF when it comes to getting good shots of what is on your nails. So of course I decided to take pictures as the sun was setting… smart, right? And the application, that was done in a hurry while I was driving home from Ulta. Bad, I know but if it makes you feel better, I only did this at stop lights.
From left to right, the shades seen above are Glitz & Berry, Sparkling Rose and Sparkling Gold. I am absolutely in love with Sparkling Gold, it makes me stare at my nails all the time! I could be typing something up and I am suddenly distracted by how blinged out my nails are. Since picking these up last week, I have gone back for more LA Splash glitters since they have so many! You are bound to find a glitter that you’ll love.
Since this new obsession began, I’ve been in search of glitter shades in other lines. Here are a few of my new faves:
- Sephora by OPI in It’s Bouquet With Me: violet and silver glitter
- OPI in Mad as a Hatter: multi-colored glitter
- Butter London in Rosie Lee: pale pink glitter
I’ve added glitters from Rescue Beauty Lounge and Deborah Lippmann to my shopping list. Anyone have any other suggestions for me? I’d love to hear them.
