Manhattan ~ Sparkle Up & Bring it on!

Manhattan ~ Sparkle Up & Bring it on!
Purple and red glitter swatches

I always check out the nail polish racks when I visit Germany. Last time I was there I saw that Manhattan has changed their bottles from being almost triangular to being square. Usually I don’t like it when a brand changes their bottles, but in this case it’s a good change. Square bottles are way better storage-wise than triangular ones.

I bought two polishes in new bottles. Allow me to show you both.

First one up is Sparkle Up, a lovely deep purple jelly with lighter purple glitter in various shades and sizes. The formula is great and so is the coverage. I used two easy coats, and the drying time was really good.

Here’s two coats and a layer of topcoat:

I love this polish, it’s super gorgeous!

Sparkle Up is a winner for sure.

Next one to shine is Bring it on! That’s a red jelly with red and lilac micro glitter. The formula is just as good as Sparkle Up, and so is the coverage. Two coats is what it took. The drying time is good here too, but a fraction slower than the other one. Nothing to hassle over though.

Here’s two coats and a layer of topcoat:

This is super pretty in my opinion.

I like everything about Bring it on! The colour, the glitter, the great polish. Another winner!

I’m impressed. I love both polishes, they’re great quality, pretty colours, nice to work with. Polished thumbs up from me for sure!
