Jaded Nail Co Anti-Valentines
Welcome back, I hope you are all well. I was supposed to have had my midterm today, but the teacher cancelled class at the last minute, so I get to stress about it until Tuesday! Yay! In other news, A is mad at me, because it didn't occur to me to get her a Valentine today, so after this post, I will be off to make a bunch of construction paper hearts to put up all over her door for a nice surprise in the morning.
In the meantime, I have two lovely Indie glitters to show you from Jaded Nail Co's Anti-Valentines Collection. Let's dive in, shall we?
First up is Owner of A Broken Heart, which is black shard glitter, multiple sizes and shapes of red glitter, and gold holographic heart. I've worn Owner of A Broken Heart over Julep Eileen, and topped it with Seche Vite. Unfortunately, the Seche Vite seriously dulled the holographic hearts, so they didn't color shift much. I did have a lot of trouble fishing out the hearts, but I have a mini bottle, and I always seem to have difficulty fishing out of mini bottles. I'm not a huge fan of glitter bombs, but I enjoyed wearing this a lot, the red glitter and black shards make a perfect anti-Valentine mani!
Next up is Love Stinks - multiple sizes and shades of pink glitter, with iridescent glitter and white hearts. I wore Love Stinks over Illamasqua Serenity and topped with Seche Vite. I think the blue makes the pink really pop! Again with this one, I had difficulty fishing out the heart glitter, but, again, mini bottles always give me trouble. Love Stinks is a much more traditional Valentines glitter, and this glitter makes a lovely jelly sandwich when used with a white or pale pink jelly!
Jaded Nail Co are all handmade, and can be found on Facebook.
Which V-Day glitter do you prefer? Traditional, or anti?
Til next time!
