Anyway, to boost my festive mood, I have decided to stamp my nails again. This time, I used Orly Glitz as stamping polish. I bought this months ago but this is just my first time to use it. I actually felt buyer's remorse right after I stepped away from the cashier as I was not in love with it. I kept it away for a long time and while I was rummaging through my things last time, I remembered I have this lying around.
Glitz appears to be somehow translucent and opaque at the same time. I guess this is because of the silver specks in it. I wish the effect would really be translucent and foil like a la Romantique.
This polish only works well if partnered with a really dark base. I thought this would be as good as China Glaze Romantique polishes. I was obviously wrong.
On the plus side, I like how Orly noted that people have a hard time unscrewing the polish cap as it may get slippery. This polish actually has a rubber covered cap to prevent your hands from slipping when you're trying to unscrew it.
I would still use this but only on a dark base.

I am actually loving this post as this goes to show that I don't really have to have excessive Christmas hauls to feel festive. I'm even planning on posting ways how we can celebrate Christmas and be in the festive mood without breaking the bank.
