Some of you might've already spotted the remnants of this mani on my DIY Peel-Off Base Coat post... here's what the mani looked like in full:
Australian cosmetics brand Australis recently released two limited edition polish shades to celebrate their 21st birthday: Hip Hip Hooray, a classic red creme, and Fairy Bread, a rainbow glitterbomb. Naturally, I went straight for the glitterbomb! I also picked up Aqua, a For Audrey-style Tiffany blue creme. I wore 3 coats Aqua, with Fairy Bread dabbed on top, then I added a matte coat the next day (of course!):
Fairy Bread is very much in the Rainbow Connection/Happy Birthday/Gems family of rainbow glitter. If you're eagle-eyed, you can see the slightly taco big hexes. Here's a comparison of Milani Gems and Fairy Bread:
Fairy Bread is basically a scaled-up version of Milani Gems, with a touch more pink and gold glitter, and less blue and green. This close up you can easily see the taco glitters - for those of you who don't know what taco glitter is, you don't love food enough! :P It's glitter that's curled up at the edges like taco shells. Taco-ing usually happens as the glitter reacts to the solvents in nail polish over time.
I bought these during a 2 for $10 special - $5 is a frankly ridiculous bargain for a chunky glitter (as is the regular price of $7.95), and I'm more than happy to put up with the tacos, which aren't too noticeable on the nail anyway. If you've been lusting after a rainbow glitter but couldn't justify the price, I'd definitely recommend you try out Fairy Bread!
