[nails] Polishes Everyone Should Own: China Glaze Fairy Dust

Hellooooo dear readers, hope you are all well. Today I have a 'Polishes Everyone Should Own' post for you. You may remember I started this way back in July with my swatches of Barry M's Denim, and I've been meaning to get more posts in this series up but have just been so absorbed by the 31 Day Challenge that I haven't had time. However, I've been ill for almost a week now and didn't feel like doing the complicated 'inspired by a song' design I have planned, so I decided that some swatches were what I should do. Therefore, may I present the second Polish Everyone Should Own: Fairy Dust.

This is a China Glaze polish which I only got quite recently but absolutely adore. It's a very fine, densely packed, silver holographic glitter. It's definitely meant to be a layering polish - the clear base means you can never really layer it to opacity - but it goes with everything and anything and is just so damn sparkly. Here I've shown two coats over black.

In natural, non-direct light - sparkle not very visible here

I must apologise for the terrible pictures - living in the Land of No Sunshine (aka England), it makes it difficult to capture the real holo in this polish, so trust me, it's truly stunning in real life. This bottle shot shows it a little too, and gives you an idea of the density:

This beauty is also really easy to apply, and not a typical glitter nightmare to remove either. You can use it over any colour ever, and I highly recommend it (why else would it be on the Polishes Everyone Should Own list?). 

So there you have, a beautiful polish with an adorable name that you should GO BUY RIGHT NOW. Hope you enjoyed this post :)
