I love a bright, glittery nail color for the summer (okay, actually year-round is fun too), so I decided to play around with some recent purchases. I chose to paint my entire nails (front and underneath the backs) with my Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Nail Polish in Suspiria (described as ” Opaque UV magenta” on their website), and my Deborah Lippmann “Across The Universe,” a beautiful mix of blue/green glitter and navy, over Suspiria for a unique look.
Hint: Suspiria dries to a flat matte finish and doesn’t resemble what’s in the bottle at all, so I always add a clear topcoat to add shine and vibrancy to the color. The first time I used the color, I was disappointed, so I took to the ‘net to read some reviews (I usually read up on products BEFORE I purchase) and everyone said the same thing about the color. Honestly, the topcoat did everything I needed it to do so it worked out. What I loved most about the Lippmann glitter polish was that it had a navy base, versus a clear base that is popular among most glitter polishes. As a result, I really could have rocked it alone! It wasn’t as difficult to remove either, unlike other glitter polish brands that I’ve tried in the past.
