|One coat of Lite Brite over Sugar Plum, with Matte about You over the top|
Since Spring is officially here, with the temperatures reaching 30s already (what is this), I decided it’s time to whip out the pastels!
Sugar Plum by Ciaté is a pastel purple, but it’s not super stark like Essie Lilacism or something like that. It’s leaning towards pink, but still does definitely look purple on the nails – can I get anymore convoluted? Anyway, formula wise this was good, two coats was all I needed.
You know that awkward stage when your topcoat is all gooey and gross, but your new bottle hasn’t arrived yet? Well I was going through that, and so I had to matte everything, and I can’t just matte a pastel, what’s the fun in that? So naturally, I chucked some multi-coloured glitter on top. Lite Brite by PolishMeSilly had a good mix of blue, red, yellow, purple, pink, orange glitter in mainly two sizes, and the bigger glitters did take a bit of fishing. There was also some good amount of silver micro glitters in the mix. Unfortunately I think this polish is not stocked anymore, but there are plenty of rainbow glitters out there nowadays, I’m sure you’ll find something!
After adding the matte topcoat – I used Essie Matte about You, I was done for the day, and this actually lasted a good seven days surprisingly! I always thought matte top coats won’t last as long, but guess I was wrong.
