Today's polish is an incredible glitter topper that sparkles like some kind of crazy, magical fire--it's Happy Hands Illusions, Michael!
Michael: So, this is the magic trick, huh?
Gob: Illusion, Michael. A 'trick' is something a whore does for money.
[Michael indicates the crowd of children watching them.]
Gob: Or candy.
Illusions, Michael looked amazing in the bottle, and then I put it on and went WOW. It actually took me getting into Photoshop and zooming in on my pictures to figure out if it had both red and orange glitters or if there was just so much vibrant twinkle going on that it just looked like the fiery colours were actually shifting (given the amount of sparkle happening here, that was totally plausible). But yes, it has both bright red and orange glitter in two sizes, with little pieces of gold, and then a dash of holo-sparkling, golden stars!
I don't wear a lot of "shaped" glitter like these stars here, so I wondered if they'd be chunky or stand out as a little "young" for me--and no, no they do not. They are fantastic, and I love them to tiny, little bits. I'm also delighted to report that I didn't have to go fishing for these stars. After I stood the bottle upside-down for a few minutes, I just brushed this polish on normally; this is one coat of Illusions, Michael over Deborah Lippmann Human Nature, with only a little bit of dabbing to fill in around the edges. No clumping, no trouble with sliding pieces. Nothing but flaming, glittery awesomeness.
This is the reformulated version of Happy Hands Illusions, Michael, and yes, I am completely in love with it. I had no idea I was going to be so crazy about this one, and as hard as I tried to get the best pictures I could of it, it's even more beautiful in person.
