nail craze

nail polishes are "fever red" by MUA and "sequins" by Revlon 
 
I've been experimenting with nail colours and textures over the past few weeks while I've been away from college and ink leaking pens (come on, we've all had it) and this is probably the nicest combo I have tried out. I've been using the shade 'fever red' by MUA, which isn't a patch on the Essie polishes but I feel as though it's better quality than the previous range of shades they released. Maybe this is because of the rise of upcoming brand 'Make Up Revolution' who are targeting the same audience with dupes of the same products, but I guess we'll never know. I only applied one coat of the red polish as I had a base coat on underneath which took forever to dry, but I don't think it needed two as having only one coat meant that the underneath base could shine through as it was a glossy base coat which teamed with the glitter looked rather neat if I do say so myself.
 
One thing I don't like to compromise on however is the cost and quality of sequined nail polishes, I feel as though I got away with having a cheap colour but when you get cheap glitter you get the tacky, small droplets in the bottle which flick off after twenty minutes. The Revlon polish in 'sequins' came in a goody bag during an in store event at Boots last Christmas, and I adore it. Teamed with one of the Rimmel smaller sequin sets, this polish sent me through the Christmas glitter craze and on its own it is easily sending me through the rather subdued summer / autumn transition period.
