NOTD | Essie 'Ignite The Night'
I picked up this stunning Essie polish for 20p off the Boots clearance shelf a couple of months ago now and whilst it's been a regular on my toenails since then, this is the first time I've got round to wearing it on my fingers, so I thought a quick NOTD post was in order to share its sparkly goodness! 'Ignite The Night' features densely-packed silver glitter in a clear base; my photos show three coats but you could easily get away with two for near-enough full glitter coverage. I've found this reasonably easy to work with; the glitter went on smoothly and the polish dried quickly to a textured finish, which could be smoothed off with a top coat if you'd prefer a glossy finish! I didn't use a top coat and I did find that this chipped very quickly on my fingernails, within a few hours of applying it, so I'd try it with a top coat next time to see if it held up any better.
Like most glitter polishes, this is a bit of a nightmare to remove, but I can't quite bring myself to care because it's just so sparkly and pretty while it's on - I love it! This would be the perfect choice for a party, night out or other special occasion; if I were planning a wedding, this would be a serious contender for wedding day nails for me! What are your thoughts on glitter nail polishes? Do you like the look of 'Ignite The Night'? I've managed to track it down at Superdrug if you're interested, though it's nowhere near my bargain price - £9.99 here. I'd say it's worth the spend as it really is a beautiful polish!
