NOTD | Private Show by Pure Ice

Private Show is a black base filled with fine glitter, ranging from pink to blue. I used one coat of Black Swift by Milani for opacity.

NOTD | Sally Hansen Midnight Glitz

Midnight Glitz is the perfect companion to Zoya Storm because it contains slightly intense fine holographic glitter along with medium gold glitter and lots of fine black glitter. I was already wearing two coats of Zoya Storm with topcoat and just added Midnight Glitz and another topcoat for this day’s manicure.



The gold glitters are more sparse than they seem in the bottle, so in the future I will use one coat of Storm and two or three coats of Midnight Glitz for full effect.
