There are some amazingly complex and off-the-wall creative polishes out there, but every now and then I want a clean, simple glitter. Something a little less off the wall, a little less crazy. But still pretty and still glitter. That's not too much to ask, right?
Apparently not, because: Meet Scandle Shimmer by Glitz in a Bottle! Carolina from GIAB says this about Scandle Shimmer: "Sometimes a girl needs a good scandal in her life! Whether you're looking for Mr. Wrong to make you feel right or you're looking for a night you won't remember." I love a good story with my polish :) Scandle Shimmer is a clear based polish filled with tiny black glitters and larger pink metallic hexes.
It almost looks like lace in the bottle- easily one of the prettiest "in-the-bottle" polishes on my shelf :)
This is two coats of Scandle Shimmer over A-England's King Arthur (which can be seen by itself here), topped with a coat of Gelous and a coat of Seche Vite. Photos taken in full sunlight.
There was some curling in the large pink hexes. Most of what you see on the nail is reflective curling, but there were a few pieces that stuck up a little bit. A thick coat of Gelous and a coat of Seche Vite smoothed the whole thing over. No big, and totally worth it :)
This polish is best applied with the dabbing method. I painted on the first coat, and there was a bit of dragging, so I dabbed on the second coat, and it came out wonderfully. Due to the dragging, make sure your first coat is completely dry before adding another. I love how delicate this polish looks, but it would also look pretty Bad Ass over darker, vampier colors. This will DEFINITELY get a revisit, as I have my eye on layering it over Rimmel Deliciously Dark- a super dark, almost-black purple.
Glitz in a Bottle polishes can be found on Etsy. Full sized bottles run $7.50. I heartily recommend stopping by for a peek- her Halloween colors are amazing! I definitely have my eyes on Zombie Punch, Fang and Vampire Dust! Be sure to like on Facebook as well for TONS of swatches and color previews!
