Day 17 of the 31 Day Challenge is glitter!

Artificial lighting.

First, I started out with two coats of Maneater by Deborah Lippmann. This is one of the Lippmann's I found at Trade Secret for $3. When I bought it, I had no idea it was my favorite kind of finish - a jelly! You guys, this is a brown jelly! Amazing! It's so gorgeous, and perfect for fall. I kept it at two coats, because I like my jellies to look like jellies. A little sheer and very shiny. I'm in love.

This is how it often looks: red/orange with green coming through. But check out the bottle!

Then I added two coats of Chunky Holo Black by Kleancolor. As everyone knows by now, the people at Kleancolor are masters at getting glitter right! In a lot of lighting situations, this reflects the red/orange/yellow range, which I thought was perfect for this time of year, especially over the brown. Applying Chunky Holo Black was a bit of a challenge though. This stuff is pretty thick, and often times thickens up so much that you are just pushing globs around on your nail. You have to work kind of fast to avoid this. I was doing thicker coats though, as I wanted as much glitter on the nail as possible! It's also a top coat eater. I used two coats of Poshe and I feels like I didn't even add anything. But it's all worth it because this stuff is amazing! I can't wait to try it over, oh... every single polish I own!

To celebrate Maneater by Lippmann, I present Maneater by Hall & Oates!
