101 Dalmations effect

Hey all! I checked the stores today and found the new Essence stuff, and somehow I managed to bring home surprisingly few polishes! I got a few from their normal line, 1 glitter and 1 Sparkling Sugar polish. Yeah, I'm giving the Essence textures one more chance, lol. I also bought another Catrice Crushed Crystals polish, but unfortunately I'm not as impressed by this one (Royal REDding) as I was by Call Me Princess, which I'll be showing soon as well. Anyway, I planned on swatching a lot this afternoon but I'm having one of those days where my swatches just don't turn out as well, can't capture the colors, the sparkles, bladibla. And these do deserve some decent pics, so better luck next time! :) After a few failed swatches I was in the mood for something light and fun, so I went with the glitter that I brought home, the 101 Dalmations Special Effect Topper. Although it's actually not called 101 Dalmations, that's just the sticker on the cap! Regardless of the name, I am so loving this, what a cute topper! ♥

BDAWT is a clear base with very fine silver shimmery glitter, large black glitters and small/large white glitters. I applied a thin coat on my nails, so I'd get the silver everywhere, then used a rosewood stick with some polish on my placemat to place some extra glitters. I often apply these kind of glitters like that, you can of course apply a thicker coat, but then the glitters end up piling a bit as well. I prefer them more separate, and this works nicely for that! I'm sure this polish will look great on all kinds of bases, but I really liked this combo too! Thanks for looking :)
