Sparitual ~ Drop Dead Gorgeous


Sparitual ~ Drop Dead Gorgeous  
Magenta infused with purple shimmer

meets

Model’s Own ~ Juicy Jules
Clear base packed with holographic glitter


This is my first and so far only Sparitula polish. They are a bit pricey here, so I haven’t really been tempted to try them out. But then my local drugstore had 25% off on nail polish. Ha – I knew I had to own “Drop Dead Gorgeous” when I saw it. It’s a deep magenta, stunningly beautiful in the bottle.

Formula was OK, but the brush was a bit thin for my likings. I had to dip the brush twice for each nail, and I don’t like that very much. It applied easily though, and the prettiness in the bottle did actually transfer onto the nail. Hurray!

Here’s two coats, no top coat yet:


You know me better than to think I could leave it like that, don’t you? I have just bought Models Own’s “Juicy Jules”, which I thought I’d try out.

The formula was great, like all the other Models Own polishes that I’ve tried. And the holographic glitter was so much denser than I thought it would be.

Here’s one coat of Juicy Jules over the Drop Dead Gorgeous, covered with one layer of Seche Vite top coat.


Here’s a blurry pic to show the prettiness of the holo!


I must admit that this wasn’t at all what I expected it to be. The glitter is way more dense than expected, and takes away all the attention from the pretty magenta. I have to figure out which manis this glitter works best with. Perhaps sponging?
