Manicure Monday - Green Glitter

Today is a polish I got in the Model's Own 50% off sale in February. It's part of the Velvet Goth collection which I wasn't a fan of in the beginning but after seeing numerous swatches I decided to take the plunge and purchase one. The colour I went for is a dark green called Absinthe.

This polish is basically a thick glitter polish that manages to cover the nail fully with no transparency. I've used two coats of this to ensure full coverage. When it dries it becomes matte which I am not really a fan of, so I decided to use Seche Vite to cover it and make it shine. The look of it when it is covered with the top coat is gorgeous; it is glittery, shiny and bright. Although I had my reservations about this collection I wouldn't hesitating picking up another one!
