Girly Girl Nail Art Challenge Day 8 - Girls Just Wanna Have Fun

I hope you are enjoying your Thursday! I have the last design for the Girly Girl Nail Challenge for you today. This challenge lasts a month and includes eight different days of nail art. Instead of trying to keep up with a new nail design each day, we have two each week. Day Eight is Girls Just Wanna Have Fun: It's true, we do! Let your mani show us how fun-loving you are!

Nothing says fun like multicolor glitter! I did each finger with a different polish to amp up the fun. From thumb to pinky, they are Wet n Wild Silvivor and Essense Hello Holo, China Glaze Sunshine, Zoya Kissy, Kleancolor Puppy Love, and Color Club Holiday Splendor. Silvivor is a pretty silver metallic, opaque in two coats. Hello Holo is an amazing polish with a clear base packed full of holo glitter. Sunshine is a yellow jelly with small holo glitter. Its rather sheer, so it took three coats, but I imagine it would be opaque over white or a yellow base. Kissy is full of red, pink, purple, and holo micro and bar glitter. So much in one bottle. It took three coats to be opaque and would look lovely as a layering polish I imagine. Puppy Love is a barely blue base with small blue glitter. It was also three coats. Finally, Holiday Splendor is a one coat green jelly with holo glitter. The application with Hello Holo, Silvivor, and Holiday Splendor is perfect. Puppy Love is very good as well. Kissy and Sunshine need to be dry between each coat or they will drag a little. But other than that, the application was good.

Wet n Wild retail for $1-2 at CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Ulta, and many other stores, all of which are listed on their websiteEssence Special Effect Toppers polish retail for €1.79. Given I'm not located in that part of the world, I am unsure of which stores carry Essence in Europe, but their website has a store locator for you. Sunshine is part of the China Glaze Specialty Collection. It retails for $3-6 at various stores and websites (including Head2Toe Beauty, and Amazon. Kissy is part of the Zoya Gems & Jewels Collection and retails for $8 on their website. Kleancolor retails for $3.50 on their websiteHoliday Splendor is part of the Color Club Beyond the Mistletoe Collection. It retails for $4-8. I purchased mine in a collection set of all six for $8 at Ross.
