Heart Explosion

Morning all! Here's a quick post with some glitters from the vault, because I need to get back to paying attention to the 4 little muppets that took over my house! :)

Heart Explosion looked so promising, but unfortunately it's another one of those wannabe-textures! Yes there's some texture, but I think you know what I mean? When I think of textured polish I think of very gritty, very matte, very quick dry! And I do really enjoy those, ánd the colors in this polish, so I think it's a shame it's not one of those textured polishes. It could've easily been one of my favorites then! :)

I applied a coat of ridgefiller and a thin coat of top coat, which very easily gave a very smooth finish. I'm not sure how well that combo dries (I just did some quick swatches, I didn't wait till it was 100% dry), but first impression of using a ridgefiller to smooth out glitters is great! :)

Essence Heart Explosion with top coat

With top coat it looks very pretty, a bit hard to capture though. But I think this was 3 coats of polish + ridgefiller + top coat, which is a bit too much for my liking for a basic mani, so I don't think I'll be using this one often!
What do you think of these kind of textures? Thanks for looking :)
