NOTD: Raspberry Glitter with Maybelline Fuschia Fever, and Julep Paris



I have always been a huge fan of using the ring finger as an accent nail.  When I was in university I would often paint the ring finger a completely different colour from the other nails.  I liked to make the ring finger stand out, using solid glitter or something metallic.  Now that I work in an office, I try to do something more subtle.  I feel like this look is really unique and pretty, but not too flashy.

Maybelline Fuschia Fever is a really bizarre polish.  It goes on glossy, but when it dried it seems almost matte!  I had to put on three coats of this, and it still doesn't seen entirely opaque.  A top coat is an absolute must with this, unless you want the slightly matte look, which I didn't.

Julep Paris is a gold, chunky glitter that reflects many colours.  The clear polish that it is suspended in is very thick, which made this effect more difficult to achieve.  Initially, I didn't apply the top coat over the glitter, but this was a huge mistake.  Later in the evening, the glitter came right off of my nail in a huge clump!  I had to sort of stick it back on, and then cover it with a top coat to get it to stick.  I won't make that mistake again!

As usual, I used the Essie top and bottom coat with this look.
