Today I wanted to show you what one of those China Glaze Prismatic collection looks like with a shiny top coat, since I have read some comments online that some would like to see that. It does make the glitter pop a lot more, but it is a hungry glitter and this was two rather generous coats of top coat, one being a standard one, and then a fast dry. I have also tried to capture the duochrome colour shift a little more, if you look at the bottle shot in the second pic, it looks more purple than the first which pulls more towards blue. I don't think I need to say anymore about the actual polish, as I also wrote lots in the collection swatches.
Speaking of the collection swatches, I would also like to take this opportunity to say that the swatches I did previously were a little messier than I would have liked, but please bear in mind I usually post and photograph a full mani which I am wearing, and tend not to do a whole collection in a limited time (not many good light days in winter here!) Plus I am really busy at the moment with my work for dog rescue and have a foster dog in at the moment, so yeah, I don't always have a lot of time!
Also I have heard mention that some are put off because my middle finger nail is a different length to the others (because it got broke sadly!) not to mention a few other comments that were a little rude to be honest. Well, I aren't going to do squat about it, I am not ready to file all the rest down just for one nail in order to please someone I have never met! I will say however that it doesn't look as unbalanced in real life size but obviously the pics are close up so amplify everything tenfold! Besides, at the risk of possibly sounding rude myself, its just not that important in the grand scheme of things is it?
Right then, now thats said and done, on with the pics I came here to post :) I hope you like them of course and I take all constructive criticism on board, but please remember this is a hobby of mine, I am not a professional, so lets be kind and play nice OK? Thanks :D
