Dare To Wear Get Funky another nail poish that screams summer

Although my first instinct was to layer this over something, I tried it by itself and fell in love with it, it's so perfect at two coats.  I am really loving orange lately, I thought it would clash with my skintone, but as long as it has glitter or shimmer, I like it.

Real Gold Pure Silver

This was so beautiful and easy to match, that I had a hard time posting just one layering combination.  Today I bring you a long post, so that you can appreciate the beauty of this nail polish.  I must say I compared it side by side with another silver (the color silver) glitter and I saw a huge difference.  While the Pure Silver feels metallic and authentic, the regular glitter feels plastic and less organic, my nails look silver plated if you know what I mean.  It's hard to describe, but if you are a glitter collector, you need this.

Nubar Gem is highly underated

This nail polish has a glow from within that is hard to capture on camera.  Although the glitter is a bit gritty, topcoat can fix that.

Reader's Idea: The Glitter Sandwich

One of my readers introduced me to this layering combination.  I love it, thank you so much.  She says "it's like glitter for grown ups!", all you need is a jelly (sheer) and a multi-colored glitter nail polish.  I absolutely love all of your suggestions, so please keep them coming.

Make Up Store Lucia and Make Up Store Alma

Lucia is a two-coater pastel metallic foil and Alma is an easy to apply silver glitter.  The formula on Alma is amazing for a glitter, not goopy at all, and it looks glossy without top coat.  I also love their bottles, I hope they never change the shape.

Make Up Store Johanna and Make Up Store Stig

Halloween is just around the corner, so if you're still looking for that perfect black nail polish and that unique orange, look no further.  As soon as I got these I thought they would look perfect together with girly flowers, and since everyone is already talking about halloween, I thought I'd post these pretties.  But let's face it, these colors are amazing any time of the year.
