Here is the Opallac Paparazzi – Gel Polish Swatch, sent to me by the lovely team at Opallac! Shall we?
This is what the bottle looks like. The swatch is slightly different as you can see, from the sticker. I found there were more silvery holo pieces in the mix.
Name: Paparazzi – available here or select Priceline (AU) stores
Collection: Core Collection
Colour (or family): Forest Green
Type & Finish: Glitter
Size: 7.5ml / 0.25oz
Formula & Application notes:
This is 2 coats shown above; the first one thin and the second one a medium thickness to make sure I had full coverage for the images. Being encased in gel you’ll find it is not as lumpy as some of the denser glitter polish in regular lacquer tend to be. It is smooth when you add the top coat anyway. You can see some holo flecks in amongst the glitter goodness.
The glitter coverage is relatively dense in a slightly jelly base, so make sure you mix it well and apply evenly to avoid a lumpy finish (more a tip for those new to gel or glitter gels).
It’s something different and it’s no secret how much I love a pop of glitter and sparkle. It is not necessarily a colour I would probably normally purchase straight off the bat if there were glittery blues or golds on offer at the same time, so it’s always nice to be surprised. I liked the colour and it did twinkle in the sun and various lights.
If you like your dark and foresty greens, then you will like this shade. It would suit fairer skin tones quite well and provide a little contrast.
