China Glaze Mimosas Before Manis and Glitz N Pieces


   The actual name of one of the polishes I'm showing you today is Mimosa's Before Mani's, but the grammar of that name bothers me too much to type more than once, so I'm going to fix it for my post.

   Mimosas Before Manis is a pinkish coral with subtle shimmer from the Spring 2013 Avant Garden collection.  It's warm and bright, but not a neon.  The formula was a little runny and I had some streaks with the first coat of color.  But those evened out with the second coat.  The below photos are 2 coats of polish over Finger Paints base coat and no top coat.

   Glitz N Pieces is a mix of black and silver glitters.  The glitters are a mix of large and small hex glitters in both sizes and short bar glitters in black.  The formula wasn't bad, but a bit thin so the glitters want to pull to the edge of your nails.  Once again I used a dab/brush combo for application to get the best results.  Below is one coat of Glitz over Mimosas Before Manis and no top coat.
