The perfect silver glitter...

And that would be Merlin by A England! Merlin can be used to create sparkly accents, to layer on your mani, for glitter gradients, but he's also perfect to simply wear on itself. Merlin covered in 3 easy coats and needed just 1 layer of top coat to even things out. But because he's so sparkly, the top coat doesn't make a big difference in how it looks. So yeah, if you're looking for the perfect silver, look nu further! Now Merlin wasn't a knight, but that doesn't mean I can't dress him up in shiny armor, right? :)

I'm wearing 3 coats of Merlin with top coat here. There's enough glitter in the clear base to easily get full coverage, but it's not over the top packed with it or very thick, so you won't get blobs of piled up glitter on your nails. And it'll work well in just a single coat on any other mani too!

I wanted to add something to Merlin, and went for the bottom part of a peacock image (from this plate), and tried it with and without matte top coat. Im not sure what I prefer, mattified or shiny, so why not show 'em both! :)

Camelot is slightly sheer for stamping, and the result is that the sparkle of Merlin peeks through. I didn't aim for an armorlook, but that's what it reminded me of straight away! What do you prefer, shiny or matte, or maybe Merlin on itself? Thanks for looking and have a great day ♥
