Mia Secret - Storm of Glitter - Purple feat. Pure Ice - Rio

APPLICATION: Smooth mostly, I had to tame the odd hex glitter every so often.
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: Yes
SOURCE: Mia Secret came from the store downtown where I got my Kleancolor - it was $2. Pure Ice - Rio was purchased from Walmart a long time ago. The line has a lot of great layering colors like this.
COMMENTS: I will start by apologizing - these photos don't even come close to how awesome this mani is. It's my first time trying hex glitter, and the polish - silver hex glitter in a purple micro-glitter base - is opaque in two coats . On my index and ring fingers, I layered a coat of Pure Ice - Rio, to give all the glitter on those nails a uniform purple look. This also added a bit of blue sparkle.
