Hello Polished People,
I went camping last weekend, and when I was asking people on Twitter what I should do with my nails for camping I got responses like “nothing too fussy” and “that question alone proves you’re not a camper.” The second comment was SPOT ON and so the first comment just didn’t work for me. Haha. 🙂 Sooooo…. naturally I wanted some super-sparkly and prissy nails. To fill that order I chose the pink bar glitter polish from the Orly Flash Glam collection. It is called…
Be Brave is a magenta holographic glitter. It flashes pink, purple, a little blue and even a gold-ish color. It’s alllllll bar glitter in a clear base so you can do anything with this polish.
Like the other Flash Glam polishes, the base is thick but unproblematic. The glitter in this polish is pretty sparse so I think it’s best for layering. I don’t know if Be Brave could ever be built up to opacity because the base is so thick that your nails might be half an inch thick before you got your whole nail covered. I didn’t even care to try it. I learned my “some polishes aren’t made to be opaque” lesson after trying out Whimsical. 😉 Bar glitter can be a little difficult to work with as it tends to stick up a little and hang off the end of your nail, so make sure to tap the bars back onto your nail and smooth down any spots that are sticking up while it’s wet.
Yes, Please! or No, Thank You:
I am a fan of bar glitter even though it can be a little tricky so this is a Yes, Please for me! 🙂 I’m not always a fan of pink but this is interesting enough that I’ll deal with the pinkness. I actually really like that it’s sparse so it can be layered more easily.
What do you think about my camping nails? Are you a camper yourself? If so, what’s been your favorite camping trip? Thanks for reading and till next time- Happy Polishing! 😀
As a bonus: here are some little friends my husband found for me while he was raking and fixing up the campsite 🙂
