Gimme Glitter: Claire's - Fluffy

Hi there guys, I was writing about how Claire's nail polish has become absolutely awesome, and this is no exception, but I am not very proud of my swatch because I got bubbles and I've worn this polish before with no bubbles. But the glitter still looks awesome, it's white glitter which is one of my FAVOURITES.

White glitter, be still my heart. I have found my white glitter polish, the day has come. Fluffy has small, medium and quite large hexes and bar glitter white matte glitter in a clear base. It's lovely, I'm so glad it's also so easy to access.

Ok my swatch did look better, so I like doing glitter gradients and I had a gradient. Not a subtle one it was blue with purple (Essie Bikini So Teeny with Models Own Indian Ocean) going into light blue (Revlon Blue Lagoon).
But I don't know what happened cause when I woke up the next day the gradient was gone and everything was cornflower blue. I kind of blame Bikini So Teeny because it causes weird reactions that I can't explain. But I guess it could've been the glitter, but nothing like that happened the last time I had it on. Well I'm sure I'll show Fluffy in a better light in the future, I shall be using it, with frequency.
And I like that Claire's is naming their polish but Fluffy kind of has negative connotations attached to it :/ But I see what they were going for.

 I used 2 coats of glitter, and apparently the base was thick because of the bubbles, but patience is a virtue. That I don't have, I could've minimised bubbles. And moving of the glitter was necessary but not unmanageable, the formula definitely does not throw me off. It's white glitter I'll happily forgive it.

Thank you for reading and I hope you have a nice day!! :)


  1. Hahaha!! This is the first time I've actually seen gradients went missing! XD I was wondering what's up with the seemingly shrunk coloured area. Hahahahah!! Nail polishes and their surprises! XD I love white glitters too. Definitely an essential glitter in one's collection. I like them over blue as well, makes me think of breezy chilly snow. I have one that's mostly white with some blue hex there (from Etude House yet to swatch, lol!) and I love it. Oh it looks like it has a nice coverage too. Not too much yet not too sparse. I like that in glitter toppers. :)

    1. I bet!! It was so weird!! Yep it shrunk too, and I still think it was Bikini So Teeny. That's a brilliant combo, white glitter is just so pretty, I want to wear this properly the next time I do. Ooo swatch it, that's sounds so great, I love seeing Etude HOuse polishes!! Me too, you don't want a glitter topper that's pretty much all base (that really irks me :P) :)
