China Glaze- 5 Golden Rings is from the Holiday 2009: I Love You Snow Much collection. It is a gorgeous gold shimmer with microglitter.
The formula on this one was somewhat sheer and I needed to use three coats. It's a nice "work safe" gold- simple and elegant, not too glittery.
Now this one is the complete opposite. This is Wet n Wild- Diamond in the Rough. It is a charcoal gray glitter filled with prismatic hexes! It was pretty gritty just from the amount of glitter in it! These pictures were both taken indoors without the flash.
I used a coat of Gelous followed by a coat of Seche Vite to get a somewhat smooth finish. Although there was a lot of glitter, I used three coats because there were some bare spots.
Here's a blurred picture just to show the different colors!
This is what it looked like in indoor lighting with the flash.
