Marc Jacobs Desire is a rich ruby red shimmer polish. It gives good coverage with one coat. Two coats gives a fully opaque shimmery finish. Dries fast to a high shine. Two coats were applied to all nails except middle finger accent nail.

Leighton Denny Diamond Ice is a lovely shimmery snow white creme polish enhanced with real diamond particles. As with most white polishes the first coat applied rather streaky. Two thickish coats gave opaque, streak free finish. Dries to a lovely shimmery semi matte finish. This was applied as the base to middle finger accent nail.

China Glaze Ring In The Red is a mix of micro and small red glitters in a sheer red jelly base. One coat was applied to ring finger over Marc Jacobs Desire to give a sparkly shiny finish.

A striping brush was used to apply Marc Jacobs Desire for the candy cane stripes. China Glaze Ring in the Red was applied over the three thicker stripes to add a bit of sparkle.

Glisten & Glow HK Girl Fast Drying & Super Shiny Clear Top Coat gives nails a smooth finish without smudging nail art and dries fast to a high shine.
