This is the American Jade, not the Brazilian Jade. Not sure how old is this brand, but I think it's pretty much been around forever; or at least that's what it feels like. It's been in my untrieds drawer for a while now. I am getting better at this trying of untrieds, now that I've been so busy to browse and shop. Rambling? not really, this is on topic, I wanted to let my readers know that I'll be going through my stash these upcoming months, taking it easy. With the exception of some Shimmers and a new collex from Serum No. 5, I am happy --relieved and satisfied, for lack of better words-- that things are winding down here at Sparkly Vernis headquarters. So I will be posting things like this glitter, which is random, and nothing new. I want to do more crazy layering combinations like I used to, maybe try some nail art, etc. I highly recommend blogs such as The PolishAholic and Ommorphia Beauty Bar to stay in the know, their content is always updated and they have great swatches and reviews; TPA does more indies and OBB does more high end nail lacquer swatches. There are some awesome blogs on my blogroll too (they are on the right side of this page), please click on each icon and check them out. Because here @ SV, you will probably not see new stuff for a while. Oh I hope I don't have to eat my words (ha!) sometimes I go on shopping frenzies >.< Back to Charm Illusion, this has no formaldehyde or toluene, which is great for a one-dollar glitter. It was a 3-coater, but I got away with two!
