China Glaze Let's Dew It

I almost feel like the time of the glitter topper is over. Over the past 2 years they've diminished greatly in number. We are definitely in the age of holos.  I need to stop talking like Galadriel in The Lord of the Rings. I must say my use of glitter toppers has waned too. I think we just don't need them that much anymore with holos, crellies, and jellies.

That beings said as someone who doesn't do nail art and looks for ways to embellish manicures I do reach for them on occasion. I'm happy to come across a nice one too. I really like this China Glaze one from the the recent fall collection.

Let's Dew It (over Cuccio Wild Knights)
Let's Dew It is a mix of steely blue and silver micro glitters and shimmer in a clear base.

Collection: China Glaze The Great Outdoors Fall 2015

Color: I love the color of the glitter and the complexity of it. This steely blue is perfect because it's not the traditional or gold glitter, but it still falls into that neutral category. I mentioned in a post last week that I'm really into neutral manis right now, and this would fall into that category for me. I absolutely love the mix of glitter types in this as it really gives this glitter a lot of depth and dimension.

Formula: This was easily to apply and glitters spread out evenly on the nail.  I used one coat over a base. You could definitely build this up more over a base for an even more blingy manicure. Personally, I don't feel this could be built up to opacity in reasonable amount of coats. This glitter does cover well, but you'd still see your nail underneath.

Price: I'm not sure this is still available in stores, but it's very easy to find online in the $4-$7 range.

Overall: I love Let's Do It, it rekindled my love for glitter toppers. It's a gorgeous color glitter and I love the density and mix of glitters in it. I love the way it looks topped over similar dusty blues for a neutral and monotone look.

My Rating: 5 out of 5 *Golden* Paint Splatters
Happy Monday!
