Nails: Red Sparkle + Red

I wanted to do a <strong>Valentine`s Day</strong> manicure, but I know I`m not good with nail designs so I decided to play around with colors and glitters instead :) . For this nail look I went with 2 solid colors as bases and 2 glitter polishes layered on top. For the base colors I used <strong>Everybody Loves Redmond</strong> and <strong>White On</strong>. I know the One Coat Glitters aren`t really "one coat" so I wanted to put a red base so that it would be less noticeable if there are blank spots.

When I first picked up <strong>Red Sparkle</strong> from CVS I knew it would be perfect for a Valentine`s Day nail look. It`s a gorgeous glitter polish with both red and gold glitters. Even though it`s part of the One Coat Glitters collection, I wouldn`t necessarily say they cover completely in one coat. The consistency was really easy to work with even though it`s a jelly base: it wasn`t too thick. The only complaint would be that I would prefer a brush that`s a little bit wider. I had a little trouble applying the glitter evenly because the brush was kind of thin. Also, the polish is quite gritty once it dries so I actually went with 2 coats of Seche Vite to smooth everything out.

On that same trip I also picked up a Jewel FX polish in <strong>Red</strong>. This one has big hexagonal red glitters in a clear jelly base. I only used this on my ring fingers as an accent. I don`t really have much to say about this one besides that I like it lol. In terms of formulation it`s the same as all the other Jewel FX polishes. I did like that the jelly base wasn`t too thick because it makes it easier to apply. I still wanted the white base to show so I only applied 1 coat.

<strong>What`s on my nails?</strong>
<dd>- 1 coat Sally Hansen Hard as Nails
- 1 coat WnW Everybody Loves Redmond on all nails except ring fingers and thumbs
- 1 coat Sally Hansen White On on ring fingers and thumbs
- 2 coats Milani One Coat Glitter Red Sparkle on all nails except ring fingers and thumbs
- 1 coat Milani Jewel FX Red on ring finger
- 2 coats Seche Vite on all fingers except thumbs</dd>

Overall, I`m really loving my current nails and I think it`s perfect for Valentine`s Day~ I think I`ll be keeping this one on for awhile :) .

Gah, after looking at my pictures I noticed that there are a few spots on my fingers that I missed (near the tips) darn :( .

<em>Do you like the Milani One Coat Glitter or Jewel FX polishes? Are you planning on doing any Valentine`s Day themed nail looks?</em>
