Tony Moly GT05 - Jupiter

I am becoming hopelessly addicted to foreign polish. The latest addition to my stash is from Korea, Tony Moly GT05 Jupiter. It's part of the 5-piece Galaxy Collection, which also features GT01 Mercury, GT02 Earth, GT03 Mars, and GT04 Neptune. I really wanted all of them, but since I don't wear glitter as often as I once did, I opted to just get Jupiter.


Jupiter is predominantly purple glitter, but there's a bunch of blue glitter thrown in there too, and some coppery glitter as well. The base is a purple jelly, so the color builds really well. This is two coats, though I've read of some folks getting away with one coat.


I absolutely love the way the blue glitter especially pops against the purple. Just lovely.


The one thing I'm not crazy about is that Jupiter is a very, very thirsty glitter. I topped these two coats with one coat of Sally Hansen Hard as Nails and two coats of Pro FX quick dry, and by this morning it was back to feeling gritty and lumpy. This is one of the reasons why I don't wear glitters as much as I used to. I don't even think that using Gelous under my top coat would have prevented this one from getting gritty again.



But still, she's a beauty. I think next time I'll probably try layering it over a purple creme to see if having less glitter on the nail stops it from being quite so thirsty. 

Happy Wednesday, and thanks for stopping by!
