Gimme Glitter: Claire's - Dizzy

Hey there, another day another Gimme Glitter. That's the way I like it. This polish here is the very reason that I NEEDED to go into town and go shopping. I'd seen the odd Claire's nail polish swatch and had been surprised with what I'd been finding, black and white glitter, neons, pastel glitter, I was wondering if the world had gone mad. Cause I never related Claire's with nail polish, when I saw Claire's had a multi-coloured NEON GLITTER polish, I was done and out the door.

Ok, so yeah, it's neon glitter, as you may know from my last outing with neon glitter that I can't handle it. Dizzy is full of medium pink, light green and yellow hexes and blue NEON GLITTER in a clear base. AND IT'S MATTE SO I CAN PUT IT OVER ANYTHING. WHAT?? That is the bomb, it's so brilliant. Neon glitter is the most beautiful thing in the world and I love the mix of glitter here, so wonderful :')

My mani matched a bracelet my friend made for me, it made me happy :)
I'm sure every girl had bought some Claire's nail polish, it wasn't groundbreaking, or anything special (well sometimes it did but I never got it), I never really thought it as anything amazing. But recently Claire's must've had a complete image overhaul cause I'm overwhelmed by the incredible polish they have, there's holographic glitter, textures, neons (need to try) and MORE NEON GLITTER.
I need it all and it's a problem. Good thing it's cheap, yeah and it's cheap, this girl really can't ask for anything more from Claire's. o.O What happened to Claire's to make it so full of awesome? Maybe there's a nail blogger behind it haha. And I like the names!!!

The base was very thick, so patient was absolutely key. I was very patient though and waited ages between coats. I didn't get a ton of glitter with every coat, I only did cause I loaded the brush, but still I only needed 2 coats for this.
Unfortunately as my manicures go I got bubbles, but no where near as bad as it should've been considering how thick the base was and the bubbles could've been reduced as I put on topcoat later. Also I put extra glitter over the bubbles cause I could do that cause there weren't that many bubbles haha.
I put Dizzy over a gradient of The Face Shop BL601 and Barry M Greenberry and I am mad proud of that gradient.

Thank you very much for reading, clearly I can write a lot of neon glitter and yes I now need all the Claire's polishes, I hope you have a lovely day!! :)

  2. I love the gradient you did! Its gorgeous! And the neon glitters goes so well with them ♥ Hhahaa!! Always nice to find out companies upping their game in their collections. Nothing pleases me more than seeing something different. Too bad I don't have that here. But I shall take a note on this brand. :)

    1. Thank you so much!! :D Gradients are something I love but really struggle with, oh yeah and I soooooooo agree. It's the best thing, I'm so glad cause you know we get awesome polish out of the deal :) Oh man, I pretty sure there are quite a few Claire's in the world, not sure exactly, or maybe I have a warped mindset :/ But yes keep an eye out, the polish is great!! :)
