Lush Lacquer Freckles

Here is the other polish I purchased from Lush Lacquer- Freckles. It is a neon matte glitter- similar to Clowning Around but with smaller glitter pieces. There are fuschia, orange, teal, lime and berry toned glitter, but what I love about this polish is that the glitters are relatively sheer so they layer over each other and make new colors. I layered this glitter over China Glaze White On White and paired it with China Glaze Highlight Of My Summer.

I love this! And more than that, my mom loved it! She is not on board with most of my manicures, but she absolutely loved Freckles. She kept commenting on it while we were shopping and at lunch the day I wore this.  All afternoon she just kept saying how much she loved it.  I don't know about you guys, but I really like when people notice my nails, especially when they are saying lots of great things about a mani that you put time and effort into :)

Maybelline Clearly Spotted

Finally this is mine!!! I went to literally 13 stores before I finally found this beauty! I have been lusting after black and white glitter for a while, but I absolutely hate bar glitter, so that eliminated majority of the mainstream brands. I actually debated picking up Hard Candy Black Tie Optional and removing as much bar glitter as I could by hand... but that seemed a little ridiculous haha.
Clearly Spotter is everything I have been hoping for, bold yet delicate. I can't wait to layer this over everything.
I layered this as a gradient over yesterdays holo glitter gradient tips. I love how the bits of holo glitter pop out from under the black and white.
Once again, this is going to be a little pic heavy. Obsessed with this mani!!

Hope you liked this as much as I do! Do you have a favorite black and white glitter? Any suggestions about what I should layer it over next?  Leave your suggestions in the comments :)
