Pink/magenta jelly base with shattered holographic silver pieces


Pink Candy has been sitting in my stash of untrieds for a very long time. No polish deserves to feel unattended to for so long, so I decided that today was her day. She’s a lovely pink with golden shimmer – which may explain why I haven’t worn her before. I’m usually not into golden colours. But anyway: I applied two coats, and the formula was excellent. It covered perfectly, no dragging, streaking or balding.

But the golden is much more prominent on the nails than in the bottle. Here’s how it looks without any top coat.


It’s a lovely girly pink, which would suit someone with a tan so much more than me.  I've already found someone who has given her a nicer home.

Of course, I just couldn’t leave it like that. So I went through my bottles again to see if I could find something that would make the polish suit me more. I ended up with a Color Club polish from the Backstage Pass collection from autumn/winter 2011. For some reason I haven’t worn that one before either! O_o Fame & Fortune looks stunningly beautiful and blingy in the bottle. Let’s find out if that look transfers onto the nails, shall we?

It took quite a lot of pushing around with the brush to spread out the holographic pieces. I recommend that you turn your bottle up side down 15 minutes before you apply this, to make the glitter easier to get out of the bottle. I didn’t do that obviously and consequently, I had to go fishing a little bit.

Oh well – I almost came to like the result, even though it’s more girly than I’d usually go for. But hey – it is summer, even though we've now hit September, right? :D

Here’s one coat of Fame and Fortune over the Pink Candy, all sealed up nicely with a generous coat of Seche Vite top coat.



What’s your opinion about this? Do you like girly manis?
