A while ago I came across a very dusty make-up display in one of those 1 dollar/euro stores. The make-up and polishes in those displays are usually not something I would look at twice, but this one had some pretty orange/multicoloured glitter stripers in it. I never use stripers, but I thought I'd take one anyway and maybe chuck it in a bottle with a regular brush to use as a glitter topcoat. Of course I forgot all about the thing when I got home and it got lost in one of the drawers of my vanity.
I finally remembered I had the striper a few days ago and I decided I would try to franken with it. Now the great thing about a lot of glitter stripers, is that they have a suspension base to keep the glitter from settling at the bottom of the bottle. And this makes them ideal to create a jelly/glitter polish. So I emptied the striper into an empty OPI nail treatment bottle (gotta love that pro-wide brush), added the same amount of China glaze - Liquid leather, some ballz and shook. And this is what I got. I named it 'Pumpkin sparkle' because it reminds me of all the pretty Halloween polishes we never get over here :(
I especially love how the multicolour sparkles in the sunlight, but I did have difficulty capturing it on camera, so I took the pictures a bit blurry so you can see them better. I hope you guys like it!
