Today I've got a pretty little glitter gem from Nail Pattern Boldness that I brought back from my trip home in March. I actually purchased several products from this brand to show you, but I had been lusting this polish for a long time before I finally bought it, so I think it's only fitting that it gets to feature first. Take a look at Allons-Y:
This shiny dream is a beautiful mix of blue, silver, and green glitters, with what appear to be silver microglitters as well. It is opaque in 3-4 coats, depending on how thick you apply them.

More important, however, is that it's just lovely! Filled with tiny little sparkles that remind me of the stars, it has a slightly textured natural finish that can be eliminated with the use of a topcoat. It catches the light beautifully and can be applied over any polish to give it some shine.
I wanted to build it to near full opacity, so this manicure took about 4 coats of Allons-Y over my base colors. Here I've used Barry M Silver Foil on 4 nails, and Essie Where's My Chauffeur on my ring finger. At this opacity, the "accent" nail is almost indistinguishable from the others unless you look closely. Application is easy-breezy, but because it's full of itsy bitsy glitters, I recommend applying it very carefully to avoid a pesky cleanup.
As I said at the beginning, I have a lot more products from Nail Pattern Boldness to show you, but I had to give this one the featured spot because it's so dear to my heart. Allons-Y is part of the Time Traveler collection, and all of NPB's polishes are hand-made with love in Vermont.
Do you love it? Let me know in the comments! Hope you're all having a fantastic weekend and I'll see ya soon!
