Ciate Day 7 All That Jazz

This is a glitter and I put it on top of OPI's Alpine Snow.

This is easy to use, you basically sprinkle it over a wet nail and tap the excess off! I normally have a little tub underneath to catch the excess glitter. It dries quickly, well as long as the base you sprinkle it on to! This lasted well with a top coat - China Glaze Fast Forward!

Ciate Day 5 Gelology Top Coat

A top coat! I put this on top of the last post: Iced Frappe.

This is easy to use, easy to apply and quick drying (about 30 seconds or less!). Make sure there is plenty of polish on the brush to avoid patchy bald spots! It is very, very shiny indeed! Lasted well.
