China Glaze - Glitter Goblin

Today, I have another one of the China Glaze polishes from their Wicked Halloween collection. It's called Glitter Goblin and it's an iridescent glitter with whites, greens and purples in a copper base. It almost reminds me of their very popular Fairy Dust polish, only with a copper base!

This is a very sheer polish. So to give it some base I went with butter London's Shag. It's a coppery, burgundy color that matches the base of the glitter.

I used two coats of Shag and two coats of Glitter Goblin. I had a basecoat of Essie's Rock Solid and once again used a Color Club top coat.  This goes on exactly like Fairy Dust or any other polish with fine grit glitter. 

You definitely need two coats to get total coverage and cover up any spots, but it's very pretty on!

You can definitely see many different colors in this glitter. Right now I have a nubbin on my thumb on my non-swatching hand, and this looks really cute on it. It would be a great way to bling out your nubbins. It also looks very pretty on longer nails too.

I think the key is to make sure you use thin coats of the this glitter. Otherwise it can give you what looks like tip wear from the glitter weighing down the rest of the polish. I noticed it on the two fingers I tend to put thicker coats on, my pointer fingers.

All in all it's definitely a pretty fall polish. Once again, I'm not sure I'd go with it as a Halloween polish, but it's definitely a keeper. I'm sure this would look good over darker polishes like black and navy too!

I still think I like Roguish Red the best from this collection so far, but I do have some others to try. Still, this came in a set of four, so for the price it was definitely worth it. I picked this up at Sally Beauty Supply, but you can also find it at Ulta and some other online retailers.

I would definitely pick this up, especially if you are a glitter fan. It's definitely a unique polish and packs a lot of punch! All in all, I say Puppies and Pawlish would give it three paws out of four.

Here's a picture I took of Zeke while I was waiting for my nails to dry today. He was cuddled up with daddy on the couch.
