Fall Glitter

Today. Have my first full wear of a fall collection polish of the season AND it's a glitter! I find myself not reaching for glitters as much anymore, mainly due to dreading the removal process. That being said I'm sure you have heard by now about Essence's Peel-able base coat and what others are using as a substitute, good old white glue! Here is a great tutorial that shows and explains the full process the best. I decided to give it a try myself with a beautiful polish from China Glazes fall safari line, I Herd That.

I Heard That it a densely packed glitter made up of mostly copper and yellow micro glitter with a sprinkling of holo glitter that appears silver in low lighting. In the sunlight the holo glitter flashes a bunch of colour which you can see in the photo below. Although the glitter is set in a clear base I only needed two coats to reach opacity. They were a bit thicker than usual coats and I blotted a tiny bit to get it even, but application was awesome for a glitter. The overall formula is perfect, not too thick not too thin.You could also use one thin coat over another polish for a glittery top coat.

This polish reminds me of one of my all time favorite fall/Halloween polishes of all time, Trick or Treat by Del Sol. In it's normal state it looks pretty close to this polish, to see how the colour shifts in the sunlight check out this past post.

I applied two coats of Seche Vite to really make the glitter sparkle and get a nice, smooth surface. I will be tracking the wear of this polish with my DIY peel base coat and let you know how it goes later in the week.


  1. I love the first color on you, very pretty. It's a nice fall polish.

  2. I bought this one though I rarely wear glitters cause hate the grit and then the removal too...but when I saw this one, I got looked so pretty touched over the tips on Desert Sun.

    1. yes, this is an awesome glitter! I love how it can be used on it's own without a million coats


Don't be shy, I love reading your comments and feedback :)
