CND Gold Sparkle

I received this CND effect to review and I was pretty excited to check out how this would work.  In the bottle, it almost looked like flakies, which is my new obsession.  I used a base coat of Seche Natural, one coat of CND colour Blackjack as my colour and topped it with Gold Sparkle.

As you can see in the sun, Gold Sparkle was almost a flakie, but not quite.  It reminded me more of sugar crystals - but it really lightened up the black, which I enjoyed.  I'm still scared of full black nail polish - reminds me of those goth days.

It's a little harder to see in the shade, but this almost reminded me of China Glaze Fortune Teller (but with gold instead of orange).  In just one coat, the Gold Sparkle completely covered the nail - not making the nail opaque, but giving great, even coverage.  I'm excited to try this color over other colors (colours) as well.

CND is available for $9 per colour, and $11 per effect and you can find locations to buy hereTransDesign and Head2ToeBeauty has the colours for $4.50 and effects for $5.50.50.
