Welcoming December with China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara

I went to several different Sally's looking for this polish. I finally found a Sally's that had the collection in, but it hadn't been put out yet. The super sweet sales associate brought out one of the displays for me, and I grabbed the one polish I really wanted from the collection, Lorelei's Tiara.

2 coats China Glaze Lorelei's Tiara
1 coat Poshe
Please excuse several of my cuticles. That's dried Poshe (not nasty dried cuticles) and I didn't notice it until I uploaded the photos.

I know most of these photos are the same/similar angle. But they all show different angles of the polish, so I decided to not eliminate too many.

Lorelei's Tiara is an INTENSE glitter. It is PACKED with silver micro glitter and larger (but not large) lighter blue glitter. While there is a ton of silver, when you look down at your nails, they don't just look silver. You can easily tell there's blue as well.

The formula was great for what it is. If you use one thicker coat, it'll be totally opaque. Some of my nails were after one coat, but some weren't so I decided to just do another coat to all of them. It goes on easily, though it's obviously a bit of a thicker formula due to the amount of glitter and the successful intention for it to be opaque. But it stayed very even, it was very workable, it was great to use.

And if you're curious, 1 thick coat of Poshe did NOT make this smooth to the touch. It was still textured. Not bad, but if you wanted it smooth, I'd definitely suggest 2 coats of topcoat. It's a hungry glitter!!
