Franken: Sugar Plum Sparkle

After frankening two shimmers in a row, I had to get some glitter action going. My main ingredients for this one were Revlon Galaxy and Nox Twilight Sugar Plum with just a hint of Confetti Tiara.



These swatches are three coats, no top coat (though I think it could use some).





This has some of the black pepper sprinkles look to it, which is not my favorite, but since it's obscured somewhat by the shimmer it doesn't bother me as much as it would otherwise.





I wish I'd thought to layer this over a vampy; I think that might nicely tone down the pepper problem. I also think more hex glitter might be in order.

  7. I agree with your analysis. More hex and layer over another polish for maximum oomph.
