-After applying a base coat, I applied China Glaze's "High Hopes" polish. Coincidentally, I had high hopes for this one but I was very disappointed. The colour is a gorgeous coral but after two relatively thick coats, it still looked streaky (at least it looks smooth in the pictures). In addition to that, something was wrong with this particular bottle since every time I shook it, polish spilled all over the inside of the cap! As much as I love the colour, I don't think I'll be able to use this one again.
-I used FantaSea's diamond-shaped holo glitter pieces for my ring finger. I used a toothpick to pick up each piece of glitter and applied it to the nail while the CG polish was still wet. When the polish got too dry, I applied a tiny bit of clear top coat to the nail so the glitter would stick.
-I used clear top coat to seal the glitter in.
I love the effect of the glitter pieces. The camera doesn't capture the true beauty of this holo glitter disco ball. Doing this mani is a little time-consuming but the result is worth it.
