NOTD: Night Confetti + Australis Glitter Nail Polish Review

Hello there! I hope everyone is having a lovely Wednesday night. I am 4 days away from my preliminary exams and I am writing a blogpost so that's a clear indication on how i'm going. I have so much work to do but I have no idea where to begin so i'm basically fighting an endless battle of procrastination. So here's a quick nail of the day! 

OPI Nail Polish in Black Onyx, Australis Glitter Nail Polish in Fairy Bread, OPI Start to Finish Base and Top Coat

(Please excuse the fact that my nail polish isn't painted on perfectly. One of my biggest character flaws is that i'm super impatient so I can never wait for my nails to dry.)
I named this nail look as Night Confetti because the rainbow glitter creates a party-life effect on the nails and with the black base colour, this is definitely a party at night! When I first came across this spectacular glitter combination nail polish, I knew I had to get it. I have previously seen Deborah Lippmann Nail Polish in Happy Birthday (buy here), Models Own Nail Polish in Hed Kandi (buy here), American Apparel Glitter Nail Polish in Supernova (buy here) and OPI Nail polish in Rainbow Connection (buy here) and they have all NAILED IT in the nail polish department (get it? nailed it? no? okay.). I came across the Australis Nail Polish one day after school and since it had a deal at 2 for $10, I decided to try it out. 

I love the glitters and how they vary in colours and size. The polish was easy to apply and it took the standard amount of time to dry. One major disappointment of the nail polish is the quality of the clear  base coat. When I wanted to reapply the nail polish, it had turned gloopy and lumpy, the texture of nail polishes that have been lying around for a year. Sad thing was I only got the brand new bottle for a day and the consistency was already appalling. 

I am quite fond of this nail polish combo and I will probably experiment with different base colours. Spring is coming in 2 days so I may be applying some pastels and brights soon! Hopefully the glitter nail polish would last until Spring and if it doesn't, I may need to invest in the American Apparel one. 

LOVE YOU! Thanks for reading! 

P.S. It has been a month since I first created this blog. All is very exciting if you ask me! The blogging community is extremely exciting and I just love every aspect of it. Expect plenty more posts in the future :-).
