After wearing a lot of neutrals, it's nice to wear a bright saturated color for once. Earlier this year when Orly changed their bottle/the logo on the front, the employees of Sally Beauty let everyone who purchased something select a bottle for free. I picked this pretty purple called Charged Up from the 2008 Orly High Voltage Collection.
Here I'm using two coats of Orly Charged Up topped with a glitter topper: Cover Band Lacquers Sticks 'n Stones. If I'm not mistaken, Cover Band Lacquers now goes by Ninja Polish and can be purchased on their site, NinjaPolish.com. Sticks 'n Stones is similar (but not the same) to Lynnderella's Connect the Dots. When I first acquired Sticks 'n Stones, Connect the Dots was quite the pain to acquire but since since Lynnderella is now selling directly on her eBay store it's a lot easier to obtain.
This black and white glitter topper is a nice addition to any cream base and I enjoy the appearance it creates on the nail. I fully understand why this is such a popular topper!
