Smitten Polish Confection

I try to avoid Etsy. I really do. Browsing around Etsy normally results in me ordering indie polish and that is bad for my budget. Unfortunately for my bank account, I was perusing a couple of indie polish Etsy stores and came across a few gems that I obviously NEEDED, including Smitten Polish Confection. Smitten Polish is made by Noelie, of the blog Noelie's Nails

Confection is a lovely sheer white jelly base with blue, purple, green, pink and yellow glitter. I used three coats for these pictures. Confection applied relatively easily. Occasionally, it was hard to balance getting a good amount of glitter on the nail with making sure the base didn't streak, but I found a successful method. I applied the first coat normally (three brushstrokes), then I dabbed on the second coat (to get maximum glitter), then applied the third coat normally after the second coat had dried for a few minutes. The final look is worth the extra effort.

There are a lot of white jelly polishes with glitter, but this is the first I have tried. I wasn't into this look before, but I love Confection so much I think I need a lot more like this. Confection is the perfect name too, this reminded me of cake!!

Smitten Polish Confection will be available at Smitten Polish's Etsy store when it is restocked next. For updates, check Noelie's Nails.

Don't forget that my giveaway for three of my favorite China Glaze polishes ends tomorrow night!! Enter now!

I love the colors of the glitter! They are non-metallic, aren't they?

I love it too MariJo! I'm really glad I got it!

I agree AngieBeautyBelle! Do you own any Smitten Polishes?

Rochelle- The colors are just perfect in this base. I am not sure if the glitter are matte though, every once in awhile, the blue ones looked shiny to me. I think maybe the white base over the glitters just make them look matte. Or maybe I just had a few weird blue ones.
