Speckled eggs

For this manicure I broke out the L’Oreal Color Riche Confetti topcoat again – my lovely black and white glitter. I still think it looks ace. I’ve been reading good things about the Maybelline black and white glitter as well – it’s cheaper than the L’Oreal and comes in a bigger bottle – and it does look a bit different, with bigger chunks of glitter as well as tiny little specks. So maybe I will invest in that one… but two black and white glitters… is that just silly?? Do you own one? Or both? Thoughts please!

The base colours are Urban Outfitters Crowded (lilac), China Glaze Kinetic Candy (the blue/green) and OPI Nicki Minaj Pink Friday (pink). I topped it all off with a round of Rimmel matte topcoat.
