Happy Wednesday, friends!! For the rest of this week I get to show you all some completely amazing Brazilian indie polishes, all glitter, and all fabulous. I was fully aware that Brazilians know their holos, and as it turns out, they know their glitters, too (and why wouldn't they? They live in the land of Carnivale!).
These two are by Vermelho Accessories/Marcia Lima. First up is Dorothy Shoes, a fully saturated red and holographic glitter in a red jelly base. Dorothy Shoes is awesome. I don't think I've ever had as much fun photographing a glitter. It's the sparkliest, flashiest red glitter I've seen, so plentiful, rich and layered... and those searing violet flashes... and those fiery gold glints.... If China Glaze Ruby Pumps is red glitter in analog, Dorothy Shoes is digital. I used two coats of polish and one layer of topcoat.
This is American Pie, a dense silver, blue, and fuschia glitter in a raspberry jelly base. This one is super pretty and seriously looks like the filling from a jelly roll with a bunch of gorgeous glitters dumped in. It doesn't have the wow factor of Dorothy Shoes but it's still twinkly and girly and makes me want to slip into some cutoffs (which is odd because I don't wear cutoffs) and go to a 4th of July barbecue with a bandstand band playing in the background. I used two coats of polish and one layer of topcoat.
Both glitters are sooo gorgeous in their own special ways and it was so much fun putting them on and trying to capture all their glittery facets on camera. You need these in your life, whether you're a die-hard glitter lover or just an occasional dabbler. The formula on both is perfect and neither are particularly topcoat hungry. One layer of a nice, thick topcoat, like Seche Vite, will smooth these out nicely.
Dorothy Shoes, American Pie, and other Vermelho Accessories/Marcia Lima glitters are available for sale internationally for $9 each through color4nails.com.
