Drugstore Digits- Sands of Time

Hello my loves and sorry about the late post. I've been feeling not so awesome and tonight is the first time I've felt well enough to post. So, I will still keep it short and sweet for tonight. But fear not my dear readers, there will still be a post tomorrow to wrap up the series!

So anywho, today's polish is pretty simple. I filled about 1/3 of a mini bottle's worth of China Glaze Angel Wings, which is a super dense holographic gold microglitter topper.  I then followed it up with a little bit more than 1/3 of a bottle's worth of Essie Adore-a-ball which is a sheer white based pink crelly (great for jelly sandwiches!) I shook it up and checked it out and was entirely disappointed. I was hoping for a sheer white(ish) polish with holographic gold microglitter. Yeahhhhhhh, that didn't happen. The polish was almost dirty brown looking. Since I figured I had nothing else to lose, I went for broke and topped the bottle off with Essie Lady Like, a dusty rose cream. I'm not entirely sure what I was hoping for by that point but what I did create was a nude cream polish with gold holographic microglitter. I called it, Sands of Time.

Swatches show two coats which dried down to an almost gritty finish. Therefore, I added 2 coats of Sally Hansen Insta-Dry. Formula was pretty easy, not streaky, and self leveled well. The holo was gorgeous when the light hit it just right!

Well that's all for Sands of Time ladies, see you tomorrow for the final polish in out Drugstore Digits Series! But until then, remember to keep it classy and creative!


* I bought the China Glaze from Sally's Beauty Supply, Adore-a-ball came from Target, and Lady Like  was included in a previous Birchbox


  1. You should have added some actual sand and had it be a texture polish on purpose.

    1. I've never heard of putting sand in a polish! Have you tried it yet?

    2. My only franken attempts have been adding color to cheapo glow in the dark polishes, so I haven't tried putting sand in polish. I know I've seen it on a blog somewhere, but I can't find it right now.

  2. OMG- this is so gorgeous! I want this one too ;).
