Jordana ~ Cosmic

Jordana ~ Cosmic
Clear base with small turquoise glitter and larger turquoise, green and silver glitter

I knew that this glitter was meant for layering. And I knew that the base colour had to be either extremely dark green, dark blue or black. I wanted to make this look its best, so I went with black. I chose Essence “Black is Back” which is a plain black crème, that applies easily, covers in one coat and dries fast. This could easily become my favourite black!

After that I applied a coat of the glitter:


It was easy to apply – the amount of glitter you see is from one dip in the bottle, so it’s quite dense. I don’t think I’d wear it alone though – I like the black peeking out from underneath, giving some depth to the Cosmic!

The pics show one coat over black and a layer of Seche Vite top coat over it.


I love the way this mani sparkles. I find myself staring at my nails all the time! :D Do you like it?

  8. This is stunning! I would love to get my hands on this but I don't think it's available in the UK :( I'd like to see it over a light base like mint or turquoise to see how it looks with the greens!
