Model City Polish Stand Proud & Reverie Starcrossed 4th of July Mani

Monday, June 30, 2014

Hey guys! I'm back with a simple and fun glitter gradient to celebrate the Fourth of July. I love glitter gradients and thought it would be a perfect way to showcase two gorgeous indies at once.

Model City Polish "Stand Proud" is a red, white and blue glitter topper consisting of various sizes of hexagon glitter and holographic stars. Pictured above is a glitter gradient over Reverie Nail Lacquer "Starcrossed". The formula was a nice consistency and I had no issue finding the mini stars. Stand Proud is a limited edition color and will only be around for this summer. I'm not entirely sure how much longer it will stick around.

Reverie Nail Lacquer "Starcrossed" is a silvery light taupe polish with gold and holographic shimmer. Pictured above is three coats of "Starcrossed" topped with "Stand Proud". The formula was smooth and had full coverage with three coats. Starcrossed is a nice twist on the typical nude. I felt like the gold and holo shimmer really transformed this into something special.
