Oh my goodness! I got so caught up watching How the Universe Works on Netflix that I lost track of time. It's definitely inspired me to do another galaxy mani in the very near future. But not tonight! Tonight I have another one of my new picks from Claire's.This is Paradise. It's a blue-toned purple sand. Yes I said sand. Claire's makes sands now and they are super gorgeous. It is very reflective as well. I was completely blinded by it's "gleam" of reflected light so I toned down the brightness of these photos for you all. There are actually two different size glitters in this polish - traditional, tiny sized glitter with a few small sized hex glitters throughout. I tried my hardest to get clear photos.
I only needed two coats for these swatches, but if I went a bit thicker with my application I could have gotten away with just one coat. I was very pleased with this polish and it is now one of my favorite textured ones. It dried a lot slower than I would have liked, but the payoff of the two coats was totally worth it. The texture was right on par with all of the other textures I own as well.
I knew as soon as I put this on that it reminded me of another pretty purple sand I have. Can you guess? Come back Thursday for a comparison of the two to find out what it is?
There are two other shades of sands at Claire's - a pink and a turquoise. Will you be seeking out these beauties with me? Let me know in the comments below. (:
