Before I start, let me just mention that this might be my last post for a few days. The kids have Friday and Monday off school – so we have an extra, extra long weekend. I have a feeling I won’t have a lot of time to sit down in front of the computer 🙂 Have a great weekend everyone!

Piper Polish’s Spectraflair Topcoat is a holo polish lovers DREAM!! 🙂 Really and truly, this is the best quality I have come across. Last year, I heard about using Spectraflair in nail polish….and became obsessed with either finding a place to purchase spectraflair (everywhere I found sold it in huge expensive quantities, or tiny expensive quantities…) or finding a genuine spectraflair topcoat.
Four brands later – Piper Polish came out the winner by a LONG shot. Maybe it’s because the other brands I tried were not very generous with the amount of Spectraflair pigment they added, so it wasn’t as brilliant….don’t know, don’t care 🙂 I’m sticking with this brand. Not to mention, she has exceptional customer service. When I purchased more of the topcoat a few months later, there was a a bit of hiccup with the order – and Erin made sure it was resolved in a snap!
Walk This Way
Walk this Way is a polish that Erin sent to me to include in the blogathon, and I don’t think it has been listed in her shop as yet. So, I’m not sure about whether or not this has some spectraflair pigment added – it looks like it to me 🙂 Aside from that unknown, what I do know is – it applies smoothly, and opaque with two coats. Purple usually isn’t a color I wear, but this is sort of a purple/grey that really intrigues me – definitely one I will purchase in full size when it’s available 🙂
London Fog…oh, London Fog – what did I do to you? It deserved to be swatched much better than what I was able to do. The navy blue/grey jelly base is smooth, the square opal/blue/green glitter pieces were easily picked up by the brush – but I still couldn’t do it justice. Don’t blame the polish 😉
Glitter Bomb (over light beige base color)
Glitter Bomb! This was made for me! (not really, but it may as well have been 🙂 lol) When I swatched this, I wanted to be able to show off the mix of glitters (sizes, shapes, colors! wheee!) – so, I resisted and only applied one coat over a beige base. But, if you look at the etsy listing for Glitter Bomb, you can see it swatched in full coverage. Awwwwesome!!!!
