Wheel W4: Glitters from Claire's

Today's Nail Wheel Wednesday is glitter polishes from Claire's, from fine to chunky to shaped. I somehow have managed to amass quite a collection of this brand despite feeling like I'm several decades older than their targeted customer every time I go into one of their stores. I hope to continue to embody the philosophy that you're never too old to wear glitter even when I'm 100 years old. I hope I continue to have the eyesight and fine motor skills to apply it, too.



(all are 3 coats, except as noted; all have topcoat)

1. Claire's Love Struck (1 coat) [there was definitely some fishing to get the hearts out]
2. Claire's Star Struck (1 coat) [more fishing, this time for holo stars]
3. Claire's Hollywood [version 1]
4. Claire's Hollywood [version 2, which has chunkier texture than version 1 and less shimmer in the base]
5. Claire's Chunky Silver [I love the straightforward, descriptive names on this group]
6. Claire's Chunky Gold
7. Claire's Glisten
8. Claire's Vanilla Ice Cream [that always tricky frost and glitter combination]
9. Claire's Crush [really needs to be layered, because the tobacco stained look is no good, even if it is glittery]
10. Claire's Grape Popsicle [this was brown when I bought it on clearance; I sure hope it was purple to start with or else that'd be one funky popsicle, but I actually like it brown—it's definitely unique]
11. Claire's Diva
12. Claire's Dazzling
13. Claire's Red Carpet (2 coats)
14. Claire's Cotton Candy
15. Claire's Glam
16. Claire's Chunky Green [I have a Chunky Purple, too, but for some reason I didn't put it on this wheel, even though it would have fit nicely next to Diva, as it's a very warm purple]
17. Claire's Green Confetti
18. Claire's Bright Skies
19. Claire's Chunky Blue
20. Claire's Galaxy [so nice for layering]

*****

I have (with the the help of random.org) finally figured out the winners of my birthday giveaway. All winners have been e-mailed, and I'll have a post up once I've heard from everyone (or a week has passed without a response and I have to pick a new winner for that prize).

There's a chance to win something else over on my online journal site, provided you fit into IGIGI clothing and live in one of the countries they ship to. I got a dress from them for review and they're also providing a gift certificate to one of the commenters on my entry (and the entries of other ladies who were also in the event I was in). That runs through May 14, 2013.

    1. Aw, with foil method or finger covers it's not too hard to remove them. At least I don't think so.
