Hello, tonight I have for you a glitter top coat by essence that I wore for about four or five days last week. It’s from the latest limited edition collection called Metal Glam. Before I get into it though I want to say sorry about not posting for almost a week. I have big news though – my husband and I got a dog! Her name is Shelby and she is a six-year-old collie staffie cross who was surrendered to an animal sanctuary where we got her from. We are in love! See my Instagram account for pictures! But now back to the nails! Scroll down for pictures and more information.
So the gold topper from the Metal Glam Collection is called Steel-ing the Scene and what you see is one dabbed coat with Seche. In the collection there are also four “liquid metal effect” polishes – the purple one you see above (called Petal to the Metal), a green one, a gold one and more a bronze one. Petal to the Metal is the only one that really appealed to me, and I’m so glad I got it because it’s just one coat! Plus I’m sure it will be great with stamping, too. But back to the topper. I am super impressed with it. While it’s not actually real 18k gold like OPI The Man with the Golden Gun, it did remind me of this and I think it’s killed my lemming for wanting to buy it. And it’s a bargain too at AU$3.50! Much cheaper, ha ha.
This is one dabbed coat of Steel-ing the Scene over two coats of W7 Sky Pearl with Seche. I love how the glitters flash so beautifully! A word of warning though – make sure to lay the glitter down flat. If you’re not careful some bits will stick out (even with a thick top coat) due to the fact the glitter is cut into shards. However, removal was surprisingly easy. I thought it would be too scratchy with a cotton ball, but using the foil method it came off perfectly in a couple of minutes.
