This week’s Golden Oldie Thursday challenge theme is tropical! I wasn’t quite sure what to do with this one, but then I thought that an oceanic blue would be a good tropical inspiration. I chose Pretty and Polished Rainbow Sparkle.
Rainbow Sparkle has a medium blue jelly base that is a touch darker than a true cornflower blue shade. In this base are tiny holographic glitters, medium-sized blue, pink, and green hex glitters, and large green hex glitters. The glitter in this has definitely faded since I purchased it two years ago; the pink glitter was much darker when I bought it, and now it is really barely pink at all. That being said, I still think it is an absolutely beautiful polish, so I won’t quarrel too much about that.
The photos show three coats of Rainbow Sparkle over a glitter base. I used my normal top coat as well.
Isn’t that blue just stunning?! It really does remind me of a beautiful ocean.
I purchased this mini polish from the Pretty and Polished Etsy shop for $4.75 a little over two years ago. It doesn’t look like they offer this color anymore, probably because of the bleeding glitter.
