This is why I said this black glitter was no good! I wore the yellow franken the day after I made it, but look, it's no longer yellow! Because the glitter was still losing color, it changed the color of the polish. I made a fresh one and wore it the next day. You'll see that mixture in the next post.
**  Es por eso que dijo este brillo negro no era bueno! Me puse el Franken amarilla al día siguiente lo hice, pero mira, ya no es amarillo! Porque el brillo se sigue perdiendo el color, cambió el color del esmalte. Hice uno nuevo y me lo puso al día siguiente. Vas a ver esta mezcla en el próximo post.

    1. The NYC one I used here is pretty good, and budget friendly. The one I like most - of the ones I've tried so far - is Hard Candy - Matte-ly in Love.
      For a satin topcoat I would recommend mixing some clear with some matte topcoat as the only one I've used is now discontinued. I haven't tried it yet, but am willing to try mixing and sharing the results with you. Let me know. :)

  7. What brand of black glitter is it? Is it craft glitter or a Polish? All the glitters I've tried so far bleed into the clear and change my color almost immediately. I really love the way this looks! Even if it only lasts for one manicure. The speckles as awesome!! Thx for sharing :)

    1. Hi Melissa,
      This is craft glitter, and yes, it does bleed. The brand is Creatology, and I purchased it from Joann fabric and crafts. Here is a photo of the glitter: Craft Glitter The size and shape are perfect, but the color loss is the huge drawback.
