THEME WEEK - My favourite Glitter



...OPI Absolutely Alice.

I had a really hard time with this one. I am a complete ho for glitter and I spent quite some time weeding through contenders trying to narrow it down to just one. Whilst in many respects this probably isn't the prettiest or most amazing glitter in my collection, it is my favourite. Something about it just speaks to me!

Maybe it's the deep cyan blue of the base colour (which somehow manages to be richer, greener and sparklier than my pictures suggest..we've had non-stop rain with more forecast all next week, so I had to make do with flash). Maybe it's the gold flecks which accessorise with all my jewellery. Maybe it's the tiny glitter particles, which makes it opaque in two coats and so sparkly in the light that it looks as though there are far more colours than just two.




Who knows. But I love it!

I absolutely agree with you, this polish is a really flattering glitter :)

It's beautiful!!
I love it!

FedoraHarp said...

Oh wow, if you hadn't specifically said there were only two colors I'd have guessed around five! That is a really fascinating polish.

I love this colour! I'd nearly forgotten about it, must wear it again:)

I absolutely LOVE this colour! It was my first ever glitter polish ha :) xox

I love this one and Mad Hatter equally. Both have a great amt of color - go on amazing - and each of them have way less of that glitter 'grit' that I really EATS top coat and for me, makes me want to keep fussing with my fingers because I don't like the rough finish on them (Gelous coats and shinny topper included). You picked a good one in my book to be your fav!

This is also my favorite glitter (that I own). I was searching for this everywhere and finally found it on clearance a year after it's release at ULTA for $4 a bottle. I promptly picked up 3.

A deep blood red! It's my go to color, and I loooove it! One of my favorites is essies bold and beautiful.

Elaine said...

You love your blue, also! LOL! Looks great on you, but everything looks great on you. :-)
*going a little fangirl*
I don't believe I have a fav glitter..I don't wear them that often, will have to make a point of trying them more.

So glittery!

I have heard the name of this polish thrown around before, but now i know why people love it. I would love to have a pedicure with this color!

LabMuffin said...

So pretty! For some reason, I'm always drawn to blue glitter polishes, even though I'm not particularly fond of plain blue polish...

Katie said...

Absolutely Alice, oh how I love that color. It's gorgeous.

Between that and Emerald Sparkle, I couldn't tell you which was my favorite glitter. Now, if there were such a thing as a dark purple glitter, that one would win no hands down. Since there isn't....those two.

criminal nails - Isn't it! My hands look a bit lobster here because of the flash, but it *is* very flattering...

Ju rockornot - Me too!

FedoraHarp - what a great name ;) I know, it looks really sparkly but it's just two. It looks great as a peed for that reason.

Sunshine roses - yes, definitely!

keijtieloves - I think so :)

Mimi Eatly - you have great taste! Definitely a good colour to start with.

beachgal - I know, I hate textured polish but this doesn't drive me crackers. I love mad hatter too but I reach for this one more because of the simplicity of it.

Lacquered Lady - wow, go you!! I wish I had a back up, I'm about 1/3 the way through this bottle and I'm trying to use it gingerly. That was definitely a good call.

Beauty on a college Budget - Awesome :D I so rarely wear reds. I should probably start!

Elaine - I do! Ha! And thank you, I grinned! I tend to wear glitter a lot in winter, not so much in summer. I find it really cheery when the weather's dark.

Bethany - you should see it move!

Jim - it's such a good pedi colour. It lasts for ages.

LabMuffin - they look quite oceanic I think. I really want the new Lippmann.

Katie - Oooh Emerald sparkle, there's a good one!

Gorgeous! I really love Absolutely Alice- along with Mad as a Hatter, it's certainly one of my favourite glitters. There's something about the vibrant blue with little sparks of gold that seems to epitomize Alice. Aside from the Nails Inc 3D glitters, which are all awesome, I can't really think of a glitter I like more.

Absolutely gorgeous!
