Happy Valentines!

In honor of Valentines this weekend I decided to remove my gel nails (honestly have been wearing them for a month!), chop down my nails (because I still don't know how to remove gels properly...) and paint them a festive, pink shade!

China Glaze Hello Gorgeous is made up of soft, rose pink holo glitter and builds up to full coverage very easily. I wish all my glitters were this dense! I only needed two coats what what you see in the photos. The formula was good, more on the thick side because of the glitter but very manageable, no thinner needed!

Hello Gorgeous drys quickly to a matte, gritty finish. It reminds me a bit of the Zoya Pixie Dusts so I decided to leave it matte for a day. On the second day I added a thin layer of regular topcoat, waited for that to dry, then added a final, thicker coat of Seche Vite to help with the grit and add some shine for that glitter to sparkle!

So far the polish has been wearing quite well. I did a lot of food prep today and no chips yet (fingers crossed). That is already outstanding for a glitter polish. It may have something to do with my shorter nails, but I'm not going to question it!
