Essie 2013 Holiday Encrusted Treasures Swatch: Peak of Chic

Essie Peak of Chic (1 coat) over 2 coats Smooth Sailing

I've been saying it for a few weeks now: if I get 750 Google followers I will be having a giveaway (I'm only 9 away!). This will include a Morgan Taylor polish and some China Glaze polishes (perhaps more if I can scrounge some up). If you enjoy my blog, please support by following me in any way possible. It's basically the only true gauge of how I'm doing as a blogger. Thanks everyone!

As you can see earlier, I posted good ol' Smooth Sailing to use as a base color for Peak of Chic from the Encrusted Treasures collection. I thought I was done with that collection, but I do love me some bar glitter so I just had to pick it up. It contains both white and holographic fine bar glitter (it's not too thick), but you definitely need to be careful of it hanging over the edge of your nail because I had to file some of them down. Also, the application could be better. The hand shown here is pretty uniform, but on my right hand, the dispersion was just all over the place. Some places I had no glitter, some it was choke full and I couldn't move it around anymore. It's a fun polish, but you will definitely need patience with it.
