Drugstore Digits- Creme de Glitter

Hello my loves and welcome again, to a new installment of the Drugstore Digits series! The series this go around will last for 2 weeks. During these two weeks, posts will be made using frankens made entirely from easy to find drugstore polishes and/or materials. I also have a couple guest posts for you this go around so I am pretty excited!

So let's get to our first polish shall we?

Today's franken is super simple, I took a mini bottle and filled it halfway with China Glaze Glitter All the Way (a super dense glitter with small red, green, gold, and purple micro glitter and larger green metallic hexes) and topped off the remainder of the bottle with L'oreal Creme de Mint (a medium yellowed toned bright green jelly). What I created was a pretty sweet green jelly chock full of glitter!




Ermagherd glerter! 




This polish is so fun! Glitter All the Way came from a past China Glaze Holiday Collection but I find that the addition of the purple glitter prevents it from only being able to be used during the holiday season. In my opinion, this polish had Mardi Gras written all over it! Formula was super easy and swatches show two coats plus one coat of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry. I love that the jelly was translucent enough to show the glitter swimming in the green base but dense enough to be opaque in three coats. What do you guys think?

Well that's all for today! See you next time for more awesome drugstore creations!

Today's Supplies Are From:
I bought my China Glaze from Sally's Beauty Supply a couple months back and my Creme de Mint from CVS. When all else fails, eugooglize it!

So until next time my loves, remember to keep it classy and creative!

    1. Thank you! I definitely agree with the Mardi Gras concept. I bet this polish would look awesome with a purple jelly base as well! Either way, I need to get myself down to that parade!

    1. Thank you! I think this totally qualifies as an excuse to go to Mardi Gras. How are they going to see my nails if I'm not there??
