Finally: the perfect black with red glitter


I've been searching for the perfect black with red glitter for ages. Tried many different ones. For instance Lubu Heels by China Glaze. It looks awesome... until you see it from a distance, then you hardly see the red glitter at all and it almost looks like a plain black polish. But then I ordered NYX Dorothy. Wow!! It's a black jelly with red micro glitter and red hex glitter. Gorgeous with a capital G!! And the glitter is also visible from a distance, big win!

Because it's a bit sheer I decided to layer it over my newest black polish, Kleancolor Metallic Black. Great polish!! 1 coat only and very smooth application. Then I used 1 coat of Dorothy. Application wasn't fantastic, a bit thick, but most glitter polishes are, so I was prepared for that. 

Yes, I must say I'm totally happy with this mani! Finally my perfect black with red glitter. Mission accomplished.

Thanks for visiting my blog!
