Dark Parades is a dark purple jelly base with all sorts of glitters mixed in. There are 2 sizes of hex glitter, a tiny amount of bar glitter and even the odd square here and there. There is also green shimmer running throughout. I would list each individual type if I had any chance of being able to pick them out! It's one of those polishes where every nail is a little different from the last. For my swatches, I layered 2 coats over Rimmel 60 Seconds - Black Out. (A plain black creme)
I did the odd bit of dabbing here and there, but it wasn't really needed, just personal preference. I really like this polish, and can't wait to try it over other colours. In fact, this little mini haul has opened a can of worms for me! I have bought quite a few indie polishes in the last week or two, and I will be posting a combined haul in the next week or two so you can see my shame!
Anyway, I think that's quite enough of me waffling, so here are the rest of the pretty pictures : D
