It's wide and flat which helps me sometimes in painting but I know it's not for everyone.
This is Ants In My Pants, and I decided to test it out several ways. On my index and middle fingers I have on China Glaze Adventure Red-y, then 2 cots of Ants in My Pants. My ring finger is just 3 coats of Ants by itself. My pinkie is 2 coats of Ants over 1 coat of Sephora black. As you can see, Ants In My Pants is a large and small red glitter in a slightly black base. I did not use a top coat.
I'm not sure if I like it over red or black better but I definitely do not care for this color by itself (ring finger). It's just too sheer and I can't justify more than 3 coats, even if it is a $2 bottle of polish.
Here in the shade, I really think I love this color over red the best. It really gives it a blood-red feel - great for Halloween!
Here's a shot in indirect sun. Still loving it over red the best. I used to only wear glitters over black but you just lose so much.
Finally indoors with the flash.
Additionally, here's a close up of the different layering options.
For $2, this really isn't a bad deal. It's not a dead on dupe for the Ruby Red Slippers - there is a lot less glitter on the nail - it's a good alternative in a pitch. Only real hassle is because this only sold at CVS, you have to live near one.
Spoiled by Wet n Wild is a CVS-exclusive line of nail polish sold for $2 for a 0.50 fl oz bottle.
