I’m such a magpie when it comes to glitter nail polishes. I must buy them even though I rarely wear them. Not only are they OTT for everyday wear, there’s the whole faff of removal. One of my favourite colour combinations is pink and gold. Pink+gold+glitter = swoonsome. Add a name like ‘She Walks in Beauty’ and there’s no hope for me at all.
So anyway, I had to have this polish, one of two I purchased from A-England, a brand that I’ve heard nothing but praise for and drooled over many swatches of online. I still think it’s gorgeous, but just not quite what I had in mind… have a look and tell me what you think.
I’m wearing it here over OPI Sparrow me the Drama, to provide more of a pink feel to it. You see I thought it would be gold glitter in a pink base, or equal pink & gold glitter, but it’s actually a dense fine gold glitter base with chunks of big gold glitter and a smattering of big pink glitter. The pink in Sparrow me the Drama is very similar, so they work well together. My pinkie shows how dense two coats look; the rest just have one coat of glitter.
A quick look from another angle in today’s fleeting sunshine (please 'scuse the tipwear as I actually painted them yesterday - in a hurry and didn’t use topcoat. Tsk.)
I do think She Walks in Beauty is gorgeous; it’s just not what I’d hoped for in that twinkly corner of my head...
ps isn't the bottle just gorgeous?!
pps if you fancy a closer look at more pics of OPI Sparrow me the Drama, I reviewed it here - it’s a gorgeous pink.
