Yesterday I managed to get out and go shopping in Newcastle for the first time in a long time. As it's such a rare occasion I decided to treat myself to some new polishes, two of which I am currently wearing in a manicure!
I would thoroughly recommend checking out your local TKMaxx right now because the Newcastle Northumberland Street store had lots of VERY nice polishes for sale. Illamasqua, Essie, OPI, Models Own, Ciaté, Nails Inc... I had to put a few amazing bargains back on the shelf so I didn't spend too much, but I walked out with three glitter polishes: Love Letter by Ciaté, Swarm by Illamasqua and Stroke of Brilliance by Essie.
The latter two are what I used for this manicure. Swarm is my first Illamasqua nail polish and it's a black glitter mix; I was disappointed to open it and discover that it's a topper glitter rather than giving full coverage, but it's still a beautiful and special polish. Stroke of Brilliance is a jewel-like pale purple topper glitter. Here is a mix of both worn over Barry M Indigo:
I really like the two together ^_^ Indigo makes a lovely base and I'm sure I'll be wearing it again through the Autumn.
You may well be seeing the Ciaté glitter next!
