Day 18 - Ciate Tinsel Trail



I put this over Avon Warm Black.

This is okay to use and okay to apply. I sprinkled it over a wet nail and tapped the excess off. In retrospect, I could have applied it a little bit better than that. I just thought that would be easy and I had been applying the glitters like this! It is a nice mixture of sequins - blue and holographic. In the photos is looks too crowded and too many sequins on the nail. I put a top coat on and they did last well, but I didn't manage to photograph this - it looked okay.

Rating
Easy to use = 7/10
Application = okay I sprinkled them over a wet nail
Drying time = as long as the base
Lasted well = 8/10 with top coat
Coats = sprinkle over
Finish = holo and coloured sequins
Removal = easy with foil method, let soak for a few minutes
Overall = 7/10
Purchased from = Selfridges

My Personal Rating = 7/10 :-)

  2. It does have that disco ball effect - but I think it would be too uneven for me to use - even with top coats...
