China Glaze Party Hearty

When I first saw the promo pictures for China Glaze Party Hearty I knew that I had to have it.  I don't feel that this is a good color to wear alone because the glitter is all different shapes so it would take a lot to layer it.  I loved the hexagonal glitter - reminded me of deborah lippmann.

I used a base coat of Seche Natural, then 2 coats of China Glaze Snow topped with Seche Vite.  Then I added my coats of Party Hearty followed by another coat of Seche Vite.

In the sun you can see that one coat just isn't enough but 4 coats is almost a little much.  I was happy with 2 coats but would probably use 3 coats.  The trick is to let each coat dry slightly until it's tacky, then add your next coat, otherwise you end up dragging the chunky red hexagonal glitter off with your nail.

Same thing, just in the shade.

I also got a close up of the glitter for you.
The sun is on the left and the shade is in the right - you can see there is silver and gold square glitter, hexagonal small gold glitter, green medium hexagonal glitter and big red hexagonal glitter.  Love it.

I also tried 2 coats of it over Ruby Deer.

Definitely a winner in my book - I seriously think this will be part of my Christmas manicure.
