Midnight Sparkle






Revlon - Midnight Affair
China Glaze - Liquid Crystal

I finally got some ME time today to give myself a little manicure after leaving them bare for an entire week. Not only because I literally had no time due to assignments and studying for a midterm, I also decided it was a good break for my nails because removing the previous manicure (here) was such a pain in the butt and it really damaged my nails. Never will I cover all my nails with China Glaze's Marry A Millionaire again! It was by far the most difficult glitter nail polish to remove EVER :O I literally had to pick at my nails to get it off cause my nail polish remover couldn't even make it budge in the slightest. Marry A Millionaire is like the face of an angel but with a devil's heart. Trust me, it was a nightmare.

Anyway.

I should give Liquid Crystal the spotlight in this post! The glitter polish is opaque in one coat, so technically I could've just skipped out on painting a base colour on my accent nail. And as with most glitter polishes, it dried really quick as well. Liquid Crystal also has a subtle uniqueness - when your turn your nail at certain angles, you can see a purple tinge! Kind of like a duochrome, which I find pretty fascinating. Love this! But then again, when do I not love a glitter polish? hahaha. :P

    1. hehe yeah, for some reason whenever I'm putting on nail polish I always seem to have a ton of stuff to do which makes me impatient! So it's good that it dries fast hehehe

  2. Woah, opaque glitter in one coat? That sounds mightily impressive :) Love that accent nail. I have Midnight Affair, it's a nice night time/wintry polish. The China Glaze Marry A Millionaire sounds like it was an absolute nightmare to remove :( That's terrible. I hate having to remove chunky glitter polishes as well. I actually like to pile on way too many coats of my glitter polishes so that it kind of naturally separates from the nail and I can peel the whole thing off :p Sometimes it works (especially for my OPI glitters), other times no such luck...

    1. I like midnight affair a lot, but the only downfall to it is that it takes forever to dry! Does that happen to you with your bottle? Hahaha that's actually what i meant when i said picking at my nails - but it was extremely damaging because I could see little white flakes of my own nail coming off and it turned really dry after! Pretty nasty stuff lol. And the days that followed after removing it, I put on a lot of thick moisturizing lotion to compensate it >_<.

    1. haha that's what I was doing! But my nails turned really nasty looking and dry afterwards, it's the best way but I'm hoping there'd be a less damaging method XD
