This was last year's Christmas manicure, and the year before that was China Glaze Ruby Pumps with Fairy Dust. I want to try something new this year but it wouldn't be Christmas without Emerald Sparkle. I did two coats of ES, with one coat of Golden Enchantment on top.
Emerald Sparkle is a deep green jelly base with bright true green glitter. Quite simply put, it's the green Ruby Pumps. Chances are that you already know that. I did two moderately thick coats only because I planned on layering something over it. In a situation where i'm using Emerald Sparkle alone, I'd use three.
Golden Enchantment is a clear base with golden and holographic microglitter. It's often considered the "gold China Glaze Fairy Dust" but in my opinion the glitter in Fairy Dust is a bit bigger. I'd personally compare this with China Glaze Wireless topcoat, only gold.
The overall effect is similar to a Christmas tree glittering with festive multi-colored lights. Obviously perfect for the holidays. I still have to figure out my Christmas manicure. What will yours be?
