Today I have something really special to share with you - the first addition of Retro Sunday Squared with Jacqui over at The Scholarly Nail! Since she and I share the undying obsession with vintage polish, we wanted to put something special together every Sunday to share our love with all of you. Today is vintage Maybelline Glitters Day! Enjoy!
First up I have Express Finish glitter in Twinkle Pink, a lucky blog sale find! I have a lemming for the whole collection of Express Finish glitters and this is my lone one so far! :P Twinkle Pink is a very dense clear-based polish with medium and light pink fine glitter. I loved the application! This is two smooth, lovely, quick drying coats. Man I need more. LOVE!
Next up I have Express Finish Icy Pink layered over Wet N Wild's Think Pink! As both glitters in my post are Express Finish, they are from seperate times/collections and have a different bottle shape/size and labeling. Agh I wish I knew more! The bottle for Icy Pink is smaller, at 12ml when Twinkle Pink is 14.7ml. Curious. Anyhoo, Icy Pink was an aggravating color to pair a base polish with. I swatched several possibilities on a nail wheel. Black looked nice, but far too predictable. I ended up choosing a vibrant pink creme to compliment Icy Pink's pale iridescent glitter and soft pink clear base. I really love the result! This is one coat over Wet N Wild's Think Pink!
|I truly love the softness of the glitter!|
Here is a quick peek at Think Pink! As old and this Wet N Wild is, the formula was still fabulous!
See ya next week! ;) D
