NAILS: The Little Solar Burst

Bobbie is a staple nail polish in every Filipina's mind--or at least it should be. It is affordable, accessible (available almost everywhere), and it has a growing collection of colors and finishes. This one I'm sharing right now is among the glittered Bobbie nail colors. The name is Solar Burst.

I applied two coats of the polish against my naked nailbed. I debated using a base color for a while but I went for a naked nailbed because I wanted to see how the polish would look like on its own. Suffice it to say, I had no regrets. It looks so pretty! I love how at first glance the nail polish would look like a sheer glitter party (photo 1 below) but when light hits it, the "subtle" golden shimmer really just bursts into something so fabulous (photo 2 below).

The blue, red and green flecks add a candylicious touch to it. I keep on thinking peppermint candies when I look at my nails!

All in all, I really love how the polish delivered shimmer and fun with just two coats. For a glitter polish, it was also very easy to work with! The gold glitter was generous but not overdone; while the flakes are fished out easily.

So what do you think of my summer-luvvin nails?

Sharing with you my new planner! It was given to me by my sister because I really love The Little Prince. Because the name of the polish I featured relates to the sun (and we all should know about The Little Prince's sunsets), I figured it's apt to share this now!

I took photos of the pages so if you would like to print them for your own use too! Happy week!
