Stash Swatch Initiative: Naild'it Vegas Sands

Hello again!
Naild-It Vegas Sands. Indoors, artificial light, no flash. My camera made the blue too dark here.

This polish was a pretty big lemming of mine until recently. This is my first Naild'it polish and it is Vegas Sands!


Naild-It Vegas Sands. Indoors, artificial light, with flash. This one is more color accurate than the first.

This is a glitter bomb of micro yellow and blue matte hex glitters with some small pink shiny glitters mixed in there, all in a clear base. This is super densely packed--I used three coats of Vegas Sands with no base for swatches today, topped with a coat of Seche Vite and two coats of NYC In a New York Minute Fastdry Topcoat.

The formula on this is easy to work with. The glitter stays put, and I did not experience any balding or patchiness when applying additional coats. The three coats I used to get this opaque did build up a lot on the nail, so I'd layer this in the future. Maybe over something like Zoya Robyn? It took a lot of topcoat to get it smooth, but that's to be expected with so much glitter! There's a lot of surface area to cover!

Naild-It Vegas Sands. Outdoors, natural light, no flash. Cloudy day, unfortunately, bet this would be even more awesome in the sun!
I was so excited when this came. I ordered through llarowe. I am not disappointed. The Polish Hoochie, who is one of those bloggers I look up to because she rocks, has a FABULOUS comparison of Vegas Sands with other similar polishes. This was super helpful for me, because I knew I wanted something like this, but I wasn't sure which one was for me. That one swatch comparison photo made up my mind! Check it out over here!
