I wanted to experiment a little with Deborah Lippmann's Candy Shop because it is just too adorable and is also absolutely perfect to brighten up these dreary winter days. Plus, it's an extremely eye-catching and outrageous manicure that only requires one step!
The sheer base of this polish is a warm, bright bubblegum pink and gets darker and more vibrant as coats are layered. The actual glitter in this polish is multicoloured (silver, green, light blue, dark blue, red, orange, purple, and gold) and made up of tiny round flecks and larger hexagonal flecks. It definitely reminds me of a bag of bulk candy from a candy shop - so sweet!
I love the way this polish looks on its own but was also curious to see how it would look on different base colours. These are the colours I tried out:

Love it! I really like how it turned out on the neon pink base. Now, as much as we looove glitter polishes, we do not love the daunting task of removing them. So, stay tuned for a post on an easy way to take off glitter manicures!
