Bootie Babe ~ Hanky Spanky

Bootie Babe ~ Hanky Spanky
Purple microglitter

I thought Hanky Spanky was the purple version of Junk in da Trunk I posted about earlier today, but it’s totally different. The pretty purple microglitter isn’t actually in a purple jelly base, it’s just in a clear base. This means that I couldn’t get away with two coats here, like I did yesterday.

The formula is still okay though, and the glitter spreads out easily and dries pretty fast. And man, can this glitter shine! It just sparkles like crazy. I had huge problems with the pictures – it was so hard to capture the beauty and get the colour right at the same time. I’ve taken a brazillion photos, and these are the ones that made it through the needle’s eye.

Three coats is what I ended up with, and one coat of Poshé topcoat really made the glitter come alive:

These pictures are taken in the sun, and I promise you, that the polish is even prettier in real life!!

I think I would have preferred the glitter in a coloured base instead of just a clear base, it would have added even more to the prettiness! 

A butt in my hand. Again. :D

Like I said; I took so many pictures, I think it’s the polish I’ve photographed the most. I wanted to show how pretty this really is, but I’m not convinced that my pictures do the polish 100% justice…

This picture is taken in daylight indoors, and out of direct sunlight:

The depth is fantastic. I love this glitter!

The polish deserves a lot of pics! Here's the last one:

Nice, eh?

I stamped on it. I used my XL stamping plate O and stamped with Essie’s “Nothing Else Metals”. I sealed the whole thing up with a layer of Poshé topcoat. And here is the final mani:

Later that same evening I went to the post office to collect a parcel. And I kid you not: This mani made the post office girl swoon! I had to tell her all the details about how I had done it and stuff! It was awesome, and I had to promise to wear glitter with a stamp next time I go there and preferably when her colleague is back from vacation, so she can see it too! :D

Anyway – back to the polish: I really like this glitter. It’s purple, it’s sparkly, the formula is good and the drying time is also good. The only minus I can come up with is the lack of colour in the base. It would have added hugely to the total if the base had been purple. That way I think I would have been able to get away with two coats instead of three.

But yes – I’ll give this Bootie Babe a lacquered thumbs up.
