Red Glitter, Black Jelly

NYX Dark Glitter (NPS 217) Nail Lacquer ($4.00 for 0.50 fl. oz.) is described as “black with red flecks.” It looks like a black jelly with large, hexagon-shaped red glitter and smaller bits of red glitter. The finish is interesting, because it has the squishy look of a jelly, but it’s such a dark color that it almost doesn’t seem right!  The one dupe that I know of is Deborah Lippmann’s Ruby Red Slippers–there are really barely-there differences that you’ll likely only find in amount/composition under intense scrutiny.

After two coats, it’s mostly opaque, but there’s that signature translucency you find with jelly polishes.  The polish has a slightly thicker consistency–true to jelly finishes, however–and is nicely packed with glitter, as there is no shortage of it getting on the nail. It did seem just a touch streaky/uneven in a couple of places, but it was hard to really see/tell from more than a few inches away. I really like NYX’s Salon formula, because it applies and wears rather well.  I get a good week of wear with just minor tip wear but no chipping.
