Sally Hansen Coral Reef + Black Cat LTEC

Hello again loves! I hope your week is off to a good start! Today I'm showing you a recent NOTD of mine. You may know I've become obsessed with coral this year so this was one of my opportunities to wear a lovely coral.

I started with two coats of Sally Hansen Coral Reef, which was so shiny and beautiful even on its own (no top coat here).

But since I love glitter, and I wanted to try wearing Black Cat's Let Them Eat Cake as a "work appropriate glitter", I added two coats on top. I had to use a little bit of dabbing to get the glitter evenly dispersed, but the effect was really beautiful. You can see that it didn't level too well on my ring finger, as there's a bit of a bumpy part to my nail. Nothing top coat couldn't fix!

I adored this look. LTEC is the perfect work-appropriate glitter. Most people didn't even notice or just thought I had some sort of design on my nails. Since it's matte pastel glitter, it was muted and subtle but really pretty once you noticed it on the nail. One of my favorite NOTDs in recent history! What do you think?
