China Glaze Sugar Plums

   I'm fighting a migraine as I type, so this will be a short and to the point post.
   Sugar Plums is another Tis the Season... polish from China Glaze.  SP is a reddish purple, like the skin of ripe red plum, with multi-color glitter.

   Formula and application were good.  The glitter does cause a bit of a gritty feeling when the polish dries, but a thick top coat should fix that.  Also, I found the polish to dry a little matte on its own, but again top coat fixes that issue.  Removal takes a little extra scrubbing because of the glitter and make sure you wipe in one direction to minimize leftover glitter on your hands.  I used 1 coat Seche Base, 2 coats Sugar Plums, and 1 coat Seche Vite top coat.

   Shade completely kills the lovely iridescence of the polish I found.  Click on the pictures to view them full size to get a true sense of the beauty that this polish is.
