Here are three shades from the Crystal Confetti Collection:
Fun N’ Festive
Fun N’ Festive
“Fun N’ Festive” is a dark green jelly polish loaded with green/orange/gold/red hex glitters in various sizes. The formula was easy to work with, it went on smooth and leveled well with the second coat. I didn’t have to go fishing for the bigger pieces of glitter which is always a plus in my book.
“Masquerade” is a clear based polish loaded with black matte glitter dust and pink hex glitters. I was really disappointed with Masquerade, it looks really pretty in the bottle but on the nail it was a complete mess. I layered Masquerade over a purple base because I thought that one coat wouldn’t really cover the base, but I could barely see the base. So I added another coat of Masquerade and it just looked lumpy and blotchy. It dries to a textured finish and no matter how many coats of clear I would put it still wouldn’t look smooth. I would have enjoyed this shade more if it would have had black hex glitters and not black dust.
“Fireworks” is a pink/red jelly based polish that has pink hex glitters in various sizes. It also has blue hex glitters and redish-pink bar glitters. You know how I LOVE bar glitters!!! I was so excited to try this shade for that reason. In the bottle the polish looks so gorgeous and looks to have so much depth that the blue hexs even look purple a little deeper in. However that’s not the case once its out of the bottle. The polish goes on smooth and I didn’t have issues with glitter placement because I just let the glitter lay where it may. What I did have a problem was with my beloved BAR GLITTERS. The bar glitters were curved and some were sticking up off the nail. I had to wait for the polish to become tacky so that I could press down on them to flatten them out. It worked for the most part, you can see from the pictures some are sticking out of the top coat.
These shades were kind of a let down for me I was so hopeful since I have seen such good things about two other shades in this collection: Black Tie Optional and Celebrate Sequins. Hopefully Hard Candy will fix the issues with the bar glitters soon 🙂
