Maple Leaf Glitter review

I was provided with this item in exchange for an honest review.

 Yes, I have another review for you today! I'm going to be super busy over the next month so I thought I'd go ahead and post this review while I can as I won't have much Internet access over the next 2 days.

So, this review I'm really excited about because the product itself is really pretty cool and I'm super happy with how my manicure came out. Born Pretty Store has a ton of fun shaped glitters available and I decided to pick out a fun one for Autumn to review. If you're not familiar with Born Pretty Store, they have a whole mess of fun nail art supplies, and other items as well. Best of all, their shipping is free and they do ship worldwide.

Anyway, I picked out a maple leaf glitter. It is 4 mm in size, which is pretty big on my small nails, yet small enough that I could place multiple glitters on one nail. These glitters come in 12 different colors, and I just happened to get the gold which worked out perfectly for me.

 For this manicure, I started with 2 coats of Kleancolor Neon Sapphire (yes, that's blue!) Then I tipped it with 2 thin coats of Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black, and finally 1 coat of Shany nail art #12 which is a gold glitter. Then I just stuck the glitter in place, and used a top coat over the entire works.

This glitter was easy to use, and looks really neat once applied. However, it is a bit bulky so they did snag on my nails. Unfortunately they didn't stay on my nails for very long, either. 24 hours later, and I only have 2 of the original glitters remaining. But you receive enough glitters that you could replace any which have fallen off.

One of the things I love about this glitter is the color shifts. This one in particular shifts between kind of a green to gold and orange. I even got it to reflect back red, so this color is absolutely perfect for this time of year. Love it. Of course, I'm sure Canadians would have lots of fun with this glitter as well :)

This glitter is $2.53 for a box of 4 mL.
