Today I am sharing an untried and true manicure, a long ago beauty: China Glaze Crystal Ball. Within the burgundy shimmer are holographic particles that shine like little fireflies. For added sparkle, I centered large rainbow rhinestones on each tip. These nail jewels are from Essence.
I was so happy to be greeted by bright daffodils near Fitler Square. I loved how the Spring yellow complemented the glitter in Crystal Ball.
Crystal Ball took three coats to achieve perfect opacity. Otherwise, the application was the typical salon quality expected from China Glaze. The glitter in Crystal Ball is very similar to China Glaze Fairy Dust. There is something special about having it swirled into the base color rather than painting it as a topcoat.
Unfortunately, this shade has been discontinued and is difficult to find. For a chance to win a new bottle of Crystal Ball, check out the Smooth and Polished Giveaway.
Happy painting, ladies!
