You've maybe heard of Orly Sparkling Garbage, the teal jelly packed with scattered holo bits standout polish of this summer's Mash Up collection. I've been obsessed with these photos by The Sparkling Hoard and have been excited to get my hands on this hot little number... until I realized that I could create a reasonable facsimile thereof.
Here's Zoya Frida, from fall 2012's Gloss collection, three coats, and Essence Special Effect Topper in Holo Topping, Please!, one coat (thanks a million, Christine ♥♥).
It's not exactly the same. Frida's got a darker, bluer jelly base than Sparkling Garbage and the holo bits in Holo Topping, Please! are interspersed with soft, light mauve shimmers in a clear base, so the look is a little more subdued. I'm still really happy with how this turned out.
I suppose it means you have a freaking lot of nail polish when you can come up with a recipe (again, thanks, Christine ;) ♥) similar to something already out there, lol. I'm excited to have a fun new way to wear Frida and I LOVE how soft and twinkly this is. Lemming satisfied.
Thanks for reading!! Have a lovely day. ♥
