Tokidoki Savana

Hello! It is raining today, unfortunately. So I can't show you what I had planned for today. Instead, I'm pulling something out that I did over the Summer :)

 This is a pretty glitter by Tokidoki, it's called Savana. I'd describe it as a mix of gold, light gold and pink glitter. I didn't find it too opaque, in fact, I had some trouble with the formula. I found it to be thick and hard to work with. But I love glitter, especially the small glitters cause they twinkle and catch the light so nicely! So, this was 3 painful coats. Painful to get them even, it dried so quickly that there were uneven layers. I had to work quick and try to even it out before it dried all goopy. I haven't added any thinner to this, but I plan to before I put it on again.

 You can also see a chip in one of my nails. That was due to my trip to Costco before I photographed, my polish always chips when I'm lifting heavy things! So, if you're rough with your hands, this is a chippy glitter. It's also a very thirsty glitter, so I used two coats of Gelous and topcoat here to even it out. It dries sort of matte, so I should have known better. But initially I tried 1 coat of Gelous and 1 of Seche Vite. Once dry, it was still very gritty looking, so I added another coat of Gelous and Seche Vite and it smoothed it out nicely. Just know that you have been warned if you plan on wearing this. So now, the pictures!

Well, that's it from me for today. Until next time, hope you're having a Happy Friday and have a fun and a safe weekend!
