NOTD: Essence nail art special effect topper in Circus Confetti

I'm sorry but I have to say that I think this product is over-hyped. It's aparently a good dupe for Deborah Lippmann's Happy Birthday. I really like glitter nail polish even though they're difficult to take off. I like my glitter polish to almost be opaque. On the picture I'm wearing 5 (!) coats of Circus Confetti on my nails without a topcoat. It's not opaque at all, not even close. The formula is quite thick with unfortunalely not as much glitters as I expected and you really have to ''place'' the glitters on your nails. On the other hand I paid €1,79 for this polish so I can't really complain about quality.

Have you tried any of the new nail art special effect toppers from Essence?

Does anyone have any tips for taking off glitter nail polish?

xoxo Kelly

It looks good but too much effort to get it look good. I like my polish to be opeaque too. :)

OPI has good ones, but most of them are limited editions... :(

To take off my glitter polish I saturate a piece of cotton wool in polish remover, (make sure it's big enough to cover your nail) cover the top of your finger with tin foil and leave for 5 minutes. It comes off with no problem. It's better to use acetone free polish remover I've found because it doesn't dry out the cuticles.

I Love this topper! it looks pretty on your nails, I'm going to buy it as soon as possible but now I'm scared because you said it's really difficult to remove it... I like opeaque polish too so I think I'll aply 5-6 coats :$ haha
Thanks for the swatch :)
