NOTD: Claire’s Paparazzi

Another shade from Claire’s Splatter nail polish line to follow Flashing Lights (a blue), this time it’s Paparazzi, a pink :)

A quick glance shows that the glitter size combination in Paparazzi is similar to Flashing Lights, small white hexa with mini/ medium/ large pale pink hexa & bar.

However, the bar glitters are a lot more fine in Paparazzi, hardly noticeable when it’s applied on top of a pastel/ light base. And there is black hexa floating around in there too, which Flashing Lights did not have.

For a change, I am showing you a dark vampy base with Paparazzi today.

This is LA Girl Color Addict in Intoxicate, a beautiful dark plum purple. That gorgeous gold glow in the bottle you see in the pic unfortunately hardly transferred to the nails. The gold sheen might be buildable if I do more coats of Intoxicate but that was not the purpose of this mani, so I didn’t.

Nonetheless, Intoxicate was opaque in 1 thicker coat or two thin coats. I love the whole Color Addict line for its colour options and payoff. If you still can find them where you are, grab a few :)

Closeup on the glitters, just to make my point lol. I’d probably repeat myself, but I’m just glad more brands are jumping on the multi-glitter wagon with reasonable price range.

Upcoming is Avon with their Urban Splatter line, $6.99 each. The bottle is smaller than Claire’s (12ml vs. 15ml) while costing a bit more (Claire’s is $8 but BOGO1/2). Just like textures, chunky glitters are fun to play with but not for everyone :)

Did you try Claire’s or Avon version, or other brands? What do you think?

I am trying to enjoy the last few days of August (and the long weekend) before Back to School season. Though it’s only relevant to students or parents of some, Halifax is a university town after all and we’ll all feel the impact soon enough (crazy traffic and public transit, influx of students everywhere, etc.). Brace yourself :)

About Sparkled Beauty

I love makeup with passion. No, I was not growing up holding eyeshadow in my hand, and I went through many years not having much makup on my face until one day it hit me. It was probably just the right time for me to open up my heart and let it in, and I could never stop.
