Hi friends! Today I get to show you the second new BadAss Polish spring release, the delectable and sparkly Chocolate Covered Cherry.
Chocolate Covered Cherry is a semi-dense red, brown, and gold glitter with holographic bits that flash bright green and ultra violet in a clear base. It's a twinkling and complex beauty and my mind's been spinning with layering possibilities. First, I layered it over Ulta Chocolate Kiss, a deep, reddish brown metallic shimmer.
Chocolate Kiss and Chocolate Covered Cherry. Is a run to See's in order, yet?
Here it is over L'Oreal Broadway Boogie, a toasted marshmallow creme. This is totally giving me a mid morning sweet tooth, lol.
Next to each other, the two look pretty cool. I thought the gold might bounce off this a little more. On the nail, though, it's not my favorite. Broadway Boogie doesn't really do anything for the glitters, but now you know how it looks over a lighter base. If you're going to go light, I think a shimmer or metallic would work better.
As I was going through my stash looking for layering duos, I could not help but notice that Zoya Jem is a near perfect match to Chocolate Covered Cherry. Observe.
Of the three duos I tried, this one's my favorite. The slight duochromatic purple-green-gold nature of Jem plays perfectly with the holo bits, and the reflectiveness of both make this duo so sparkly. The tiny, uniform size of the glitters keep this look elegant and classy, which is what I love so much about BadAss glitters in the first place. They're glitter for grownups.
I used one coat of Chocolate Covered Cherry over each base. This is topcoat hungry and I used three coats of my Out The Door before I was satisfied with the texture.
Chocolate Covered Cherry will be available for purchase for $8.75 in BadAss Polish's etsy shop here on Wednesday, March 20, BUT creator Amy is holding a flash giveaway for one bottle before it is officially released on BadAss's facebook page.
