I’ll sugarcoat this…

A while ago, during one of my London Cosmoprof escapes with Marta, I picked up China Glaze Sugar Plums. I was suuuuuuper excited about this colour, as I do love me some plums. That excitement hit the ground, face first, after I applied it. The colour in the bottle is a gorgeous reddish plum with multi-coloured micro glitter. Once applied, it looks gritty and grainy and the glitter is BARELY visible…ugh, such a disappointment 😦
Taking my “half-full glass” approach I decided to “fix” it…yay, stamping πŸ˜›

Like fixes like, right?!? Taking China Glaze 2030 and Konad plate m63, I applied a swirly stamp to try to enhance this measly polish…
Not too shabby…However, even after applying a stamp AND topcoat (Essie Good to Go) the graininess was still visible.Β  Hmmm, maybe I’m just new to glitter polishes?

Note: There is a ridiculous amount of sparkle ALL OVER my hands from those Christmas beads πŸ˜›

Much like other sugary confections, this one looked impressive initially only to disappoint later… 😦


So, tell me, do you find other glitter polishes grainy?
