This is my favourite gold glitter, China Glaze's Solar Flare.
Don't believe me? LOOK at my bottle! No nail varnish I've ever had has got beyond three quarters full, and this one is nearly half empty!
Anyway, Solar Flare is very large gold hexagonal pieces in a clear base. It can be a little tricky to apply, as with all glitters like this, and sometimes you need to push the glitter around a bit to fill the gaps, but I love it!
This is three coats with topcoat to smooth the surface. I know there are gaps on my nails, but in real life they are not at all obvious, because the nails are just so reflective and shiny!
The light reflects off this glitter beautifully, and makes the sparkliest glitter finish I know. I like the fish-scaly look as well.
Sometimes I layer this over a plain gold base, or a black base, or red, but this time I decided to go for full on plain gold BLING.
