Remember the epic glitter swap haul that I got from Brazil? Well, I still do, because these Hits glitters are simply amazing (thank you, Mauni! :) ! I keep trying them one by one, and I think it's time to post one of them! :) So, next after Atenas I picked Hits Speciallità Cairo - also because I've been there, citywise.
Cairo...Cairo is a huge buzzing turmoil city. And the Cairo polish is a multicolour glitter swimming in a light nude base. Where's the resemblance? None. In spite of that, this polish is quite beautiful (unlike the city - sorry), to be more precise, it consists of blue, red, green and gold hexagonal glitter and tiny particles of the same colours.
Application is only a bit tricky because one needs to even out all those glitterinis, and the consistency of the polish is like sour cream with sugar. Once it's applied (2 coats are enough), the surface remains a bit gritty, and there's nothing a layer of an average top coat can do.. maybe a thick layer of Seche could have helped.
I really like the effect Cairo creates - a nude polish with colourful glitter looks so fluffy and meanwhile interesting. Actually, the colour base in the bottle seems to have a pink and a lilac hue, but I don't see it on my nails, rather a grey one..
Trying to shower glitter in a close-up.. all clickable :)
Have you tried the Hits glitters? From the Glitters of the World Collection or maybe any other? Aren't they just so cool?? :)
