Bottle Spam Saturday: Glitter Bombs Edition

 *Be sure to vote for next week's bottle spam!*

I know every blogger and every nail addict, as their own idea of different finishes of polishes. My idea of glass fleck maybe someone else's idea of a micro shimmer. My idea of micro shimmer maybe someone else's idea of a frost. I think you get what I'm saying? Sometimes it's difficult to decipher exactly what finish a polish is, and even though there are guides out there there can be many blurred lines.

That being said, my idea of glitter bomb is a polish that has compact glitter suspended in a clear base. This glitter polish can be built up to opacity in a reasonable amount of coats usually around 2-4. This is different than the jelly glitters and the glitters you'd use for layering. These are stinkers they hold on for dear life on your nails, and are a royal pain in the butt to remove, but we love them just the same.

Milani Red Sparkle, Gold Glitz, Blue Flash, Purple Gleam, & Silver Dazzle

China Glaze Nova, Medallion, OPI Mad as a Hatter, Zoya Astra, & Orly Bubbly Bombshell

Finger Paints Wicked Glitter, Milani Disco Lights, Sally Hansen Rockstar Pink, Love & Beauty Silver, Ulta And the Oscar Goes To..., Tinseltown, & Tweetworthy

Shockingly, I do not have many of these polishes. I actually thought I'd have a lot more. I do know why I don't though. I hardly wear these mainly because of the removal process. I know there is the foil method, but getting the foil and doing all the steps of that is still a pain. Patience is something I don't really have with nail polish. That is why I admire all the nail art folks out there!

Happy Saturday!
