I gotta admit I do love a little sprinkle of sparkle over the nails especially come this time of year when the dark nights are closing in and the twinkle of tea light candles and street lights make everything feel that little bit more festive.
Considering I don’t own a huge selection of sparkly varnish top coats, I’ve had my eye on a few delectable looking dazzlers lately including Sally Hanson’s Gem Crush Polish in the shade Razzle Dazzler, with its soft pink sparkly tones. Ooooh it’s beautiful *swoon* Quite a few times I’ve spotted this little beauty whilst browsing the aisles of Superdrug and for some unknown reason I haven’t yet taken the plunge… that will change during my next trip as my nails are currently crying out for it.
Twit Twoo *wolf whistle NOT owl* … how pretty is Sally Hansens Razzle Dazzler?
I’m also tempted by a few of the other shades too… aren’t they gorgeous?
Another glorious little sparkler I found browsing through the online pages of House of Fraser is Alexa Sparkle by Nails Inc. This would undoubtedly look stunning over a few of my rich autumnal shades I’ve recently resurrected from the depths of my varnish collection. How delicious would this be over a rich plum polish? I’ll get back to you with the results, but it’s certainly on my seasonal wish list!
However Bedazzled by Collection is what I’m really into at the moment. I picked this up last year after spotting my sister wearing a similar sparkly shade on her nails and I instantly fell in love. I will say, after a few wears I got a tad fed up of the nightmare trying to remove it, those little glitter bits really stick hard so expect you’ll to break out the big guns (a nail file) during a change-over! Thankfully it’s worth the hassle as it looks gorgeous on, currently I’m wearing it over collections milkshake which is quite a muted peachy /nude colour however it has looked every bit as impressive over pretty much every colour I’ve wore it with, ranging from deep glossy blacks to baby pinks and mint greens. It just adds that little bit of twinkle and is a steal for under a fiver from Superdrug… ooo err!
Lastly, one of my sparkler base coat top-picks is Rimmel Salon Pro in urban purple. Although my camera’s picking it up as a reddy tone in the bottom pic, it’s actually more of a raspberry/maroon purple – it’s one of those impossible one’s to properly describe with sounding a bit weird. Anyway, it covers incredibly well, looks fantastic, is pretty long lasting with a good top coat & the rather chunky flecks of glitter from the Collection Bedazzled layered on top transform it into a perfect party nail. If you’re into a rich, glossy nails I’d highly recommend you try Rimmel’s Salon Pro range, they really are beautiful colours that transform your fingers into ten dazzling digits… and look every bit as professional as a well manicured gel!
Just a few of the dazzling nail polish picks I’ll be wearing over the next few weeks… Oooer!
