As you may know from previous posts or Twitter, I have been really sick this week. I woke up Saturday morning feeling pretty much fine, and by Saturday afternoon felt terrible. I am still sick too, although I think I am finally starting to feel just a smidge better. Anyway, I needed to paint my nails on Sunday (they were bare, and I didn't want to chew them!) and wanted something really easy; no Konad, not too many coats.... and I sure did pick the right polish!
This is one coat of China Glaze Sugar Plums. One Coat. Needless to say, this ended up being the perfect choice for me that day - while I have read most people used two coats of this, one was plenty for me! Sugar Plums is a really gorgeous deep plum color with really nice holographic glitter. Application was obviously great, although the surface was left a tad bumpy. The formula reminded me of CG's Good Witch? or The Ten Man. A coat of Seche Vite took care of most of that bumpiness though!
Outdoors, full (bright!) sun
As I often find with glitters like this, it was hard to capture the true sparlke of the polish. This one was VERY sparkly, and the holo was really pretty. If you click on the picture above, you can see more of the holo gliter.
Indoors, artificial light
In the indoor picture above, you also get more of a hint of the holo glitter, especially in the bottle. Overall I really love this polish - what's not to love with gorgeous holo glitter and a one-coat application? And to think I almost didn't pick this one up from the holiday collection... :)
