Reswatch: CND Jade Sparkle and Sapphire Sparkle

Two of my first CND effect polishes! They had terrible swatches, so I decided to update them!

CND Jade Sparkle layered over Illamasqua Milf - I kept this over ChG White Cap, which has a very similar look, but the CND has a clearer base which is better for layering, imo! I have a comparison of the two in this post.

CND Sapphire Sparkle over NARS Midnight Express
- This one is just beautiful. It's dupey to OPI I Juggle Men, but I heard that one seemed to react badly with quick dry top coats.

It's almost the weekend, right? RIGHT?! I have to go to the DMV this weekend to renew my driver's license (*shakes fist at being Canadian in America*) so that will be super depressing and boring. I have lots and lots of indie swatches coming up, so keep an eye out for that :D


  1. Ewwww, I'm sorry you'll have to go to the DMV! That's never fun. :(

    Also, if you don't mind my asking ... is there a particular top coat you use with your NARS polishes? I can't seem to find one that doesn't give me crazy bad tip wear within a day.

  2. I only have 1 NARS polish now! I just use Seche Vite, and find it does cause a little shrinkage, but I thought that was more to do with Midnight Express being a jelly formula (so I use 3 coats) than it having to do with it being NARS... derp. Sorry that was not very helpful!

  3. No, no. You were really helpful actually! I wore Galion with Essie Good to Go and it was just ... bleh. I will keep experimenting! Thank you. <3

    I knew you purged Zulu. I'm iffy about it but I could never do that to Midnight Express! :P

  4. yeah Zulu was just wayyyy to blackened on me! When I got Illamasqua Rampage, I totally shunned Zulu XD

    Yes I loooooove Midnight Express!! I'll be sad when I run out.

  5. LOVE Jade Sparkle over MILF!!! OMG I want to try this right now.

  6. The second is nice:)
