Penelope Luz ~ Confetti



Penelope Luz ~ Confetti
Transparent base with micro glitters in matte blue and neon yellow

I started out with a green OPI, Forrest My Case, which is a really lovely green crème. It’s easy to work with, it covers well and it dries relatively fast. It’s a heavy stainer though, and the only reason I’ve still got it is because it’s a Sephora Exclusive, and I have a soft spot for store exclusives.

Let me show you how pretty it is. Here’s two easy coats and no topcoat. The picture is taken in the sun.


Isn’t that just an amazing green? I love it!


Moving right on to the Penelope Cruz. When I first saw it I thought it was green. The mix of blue and yellow glitters gives the impression of green – it’s quite spectacular! But anyway, the formula is good. It’s a bit on the thicker side, but I like that, so I ain’t complaining. I applied one coat and it just glided on like butter.

Here’s the result:


Can you see why I thought it was green?


Last picture for today:


I really, really like this combo of grass green and blue and yellow.


Number of coats: 1, it’s a topper
Drying time: Average
Finish: Micro glitters in a clear base
Overall impression: Really nice addition to a green or blue polish (I don’t wear yellows as a rule!)
Buy again: No

  1. I'm not so sure about the green on it's own, but it looks good on you - and the layering totally won me over :D

    1. That is really nice to hear, thank you. I would never wear the green on it's own either, as you know ;)

  4. Great combo! And it reminds me of Floam! I guess this would be a good alternative seeing as Ninja Polish is no more.
