NOTD: Forever21 "Purple Confetti"

Welp, it's officially every student's least favorite time of the year: time to get back to the daily grind; back to the cornucopia of emotions occupying your every orifice 24/7; back to self-deprecation at its finest; time to go back to school. And, in true-to-Cassie-fashion, I'm clearly back at it… didn't I just proclaim that I was going to get back into regular blogging? Wasn't my last 'real' post a week ago now? Aren't I always saying how tiresome I am for only posting about freaking nail polish??? 

I'm so annoyed with myself. 
I'm also tired (even though we're only a week into the new semester; yikes).

Let's look at the pretty polish to make ourselves feel better, shall we?

I've said it a million times before and I'll say it a million times again: Forever21 makes, quite possibly, the best milky glitter polishes out there. And for only $2.80 a bottle? SOLD. I am such a happy customer (and have the cutest looking nails 'ta boot).
"Purple Confetti" is a gorgeously muted lavender cream with baby pink, blue, and silver glitter laced throughout. In terms of the 'too much glitter'/'not enough glitter' spectrum I'd say this polish leans a little on the glitter heavy side but, let's be honest, I'm the last person to complain about a bit of extra sparkle. When you put two or three layers of the polish on your nails it gives a good illusion of depth and really creates a nice contrast between the milky lavender base and sometimes-matte-sometimes-sparkly pieces of glitter (depending on how buried in polish they are [or aren't]).

Overall: it's love. I just can't get over how endearing the glitter polishes from Forever21 are. "Purple Confetti" is particularly whimsical and makes all of the bad-back-to-school-feelings seem a bit less potent.
If you haven't seen the plethora of other milky glitters from Forever21 I've reviewed then feel free to take a gander hereor herehere tooand here's another one for good measure!

What are your favorite milky glitter polishes?

  2. I just tried out "Too dimensional" nail polish by loreal and it's a dark purple crusted glitter. It's lovely on the nails, but I didn't know it was a textured polish to ugh, I kinda hate it .. lol.


    1. Haha oh no Monica!! Maybe a super shiny top coat will fix it? :)

  3. I don't know if you ever have, but could you do a nail care video? I have recently started a job that I am allowed to wear nail polish at but my cuticles look like crap! Yours are so nice, how do you do it?!! Love your videos!!
