Hi guys, and welcome to another day of the Neverending Pile Challenge. The prompt for today is Boutique, just like a lot of the other Glittah' Pirates, I wasn't too sure exactly which brands are classed as boutique. Luckily for me, I had an untried on my rack that actually says "Boutique Nail Lacquer" on the front of the bottle :D
Let me introduce you to ILNP - Your Majesty, a gorgeous glitter topper packed full of fuchsia, gold and bronze hexes in different sizes, with a sprinkling of small fuchsia circles. Unfortunately this is quite an old polish, and it isn't on their website or Etsy anymore, so if you want it now I'm really sorry! I was lucky enough to get this in a grab bag from the gorgeous Debbie Crumpet. The base is a little bit smelly, but nothing I can't live with. This is the only topper I have from this brand, so I'd be interested to know if they've switched to a less stinky suspension base now.
So, I just did a quick glitter gradient with this over Model's Own - Purple Mystique, with a full on glitterbomb accent nail. I used the sponging technique for this, and boy did it make a difference, I got tonnes of glitter with barely any base. To be honest I may have gone a little overboard with my sponging, but it's been ages since I wore this much glitter! It felt good.
Unfortunately, I managed to forget to do a PVA base, so as you can imagine, removal really was a bitch! Other than that, I liked this mani. I used to do glitter gradients all the time before I started blogging, so it was nice to revisit an old favourite :)
