Have I ever mentioned how much I love chunky glitters? If you scroll through my blog without reading a word you might guess that I love chunky glitters. I never have to say that I love chunky glitters because I wear them almost every day and if not every day its at least once or twice a week. But my love affair with chunky glitters started with Sephora by OPI “Only Gold For Me” a few years ago. I would put 3 coats over a gold and make it look like a minx manicure and get crazy compliments. While I have since branched out and use chunky glitters in a multitude of ways, that is still my favorite way to wear a chunky glitter, layered on like crazy so it looks like molten metal on your fingers. So when I saw that Essie came out with a pink chunky glitter that is the same as the Sephora, I had to get my hands on it. I don’t know why it took me so long, but I finally found it and I think it has since replaced my Sephora glitters as much favorite!
Essie “A Cut Above” is a rose toned chunky pink glitter. The best part of this polish is that its so densely packed! This is one coat! I seriously couldn’t believe that each coat had so much glitter because I had been using the Sephora that takes at least 2 but most of the time 3 to look the same. And since it was only one coat, the dry time wasn’t as long as other chunky polishes. And I had to have a polish underneath it so I picked a rose gold polish for the molten metal, tin foil look, and used Orly “Rage”. This is 2 coats of Rage with 1 coat A Cut Above and it lasted me for a few days before I took it off. Overall, I’m so happy I got this and I want to pick up the other glitter, “Set In Stones” to replace my Sephora by OPI “Flurry Up” because its cheaper and more densely packed.
