Models Own Sterling Silver

First of all, I logged in yesterday/the day before and saw that I have 51 followers! That totally made my day! Thank you guys! I'm giving each and every one of you.. a virtual hug! Haha (:
I wanted to post yesterday but I had a short presentation to do today so I had to work on that. I did horribly, but luckily, it's not being assessed. I would probably have put in more effort if it was.

Anyway, I've wanted a silver polish for the longest time ever and bought myself China Glaze Cheers To You. Then my aunt bought me Models Own Sterling Silver, which is really close to the China Glaze. I love silver and will probably find something cool to do with all this silver. I did try doing a comparison but the photos turned out like poop so I'll just do it again.

Sterling Silver is a basic silver foil. I did 2 coats with top coat. I loved the brush and the formula. If you're observant enough, you might spot a couple of bald-looking spots but it was completely opaque in real life. The first 4 photos were taken in the shade, and the two after those were with sunlight.

I felt a bit Terminator-like having this on my nails. Like the Terminator melted and I painted the liquid metal part on my nails.

I tried putting on a second coat of top coat on a couple of nails, which seemed to make the polish look grittier (although it felt smoother to touch) and more sparkly. I used my index and ring finger for this. I can't recall why I didn't use my middle finger. Odd.

Blurred to show the difference in sparkle.

I knew adding more top coat to a gritty glitter would make a difference but I didn't apply that to foils too. I'm guessing, from this, that if you don't put any top coat on, the foil would look smoother and less sparkly. I guess if you're a little bored of the foil look you could add a top coat and then make this a little more party-like.

Speaking of gritty glitters, I have OPI Mad As A Hatter on now! *happy dance*
