Thanksgiving Mani: Nine Zero Stuffed

Happy Thanksgiving all! Hope everyone has a nice day and long weekend planned! My parents are coming for dinner at our house, which will probably be chaos, but oh well! Hopefully the turkey turns out! As a quick Thanksgiving mani, I decided to whip out a new-to-me brand, Nine Zero Lacquer! I saw swatches of the brand's Thanksgiving trio and knew I had to have them. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday, so it's great to see it getting some love! For this mani, I went simple and pulled out Stuffed to use. Stuffed is described as a "gold holographic micro glitter with warm, seasonal glitters mixed in." The primary glitter I see added in is burgundy, but there's some red and possibly orange in there too. When I first applied this, I tried painting it on like I would any normal polish, but the glitter placement was a little sparse, so I ended up dabbing a first coat on the nail to get good coverage, then painted on a second and third coat like normal (with maybe a bit of dabbing to cover any thin spots). But it was super easy to use, packed with glitter, dried quickly, and I think you could also use this as a glitter topper if you didn't want to do just straight up glitter. Winner winner turkey dinner! It was a bit of a thirsty glitter, though, and I did need two layers of top coat (I am currently using the Essence gel top coat) to give it a smooth finish. All in all, an excellent polish and it works perfectly for the holiday! I'm excited to have discovered this brand and look forward to sharing more of their polishes with you!

Stuffed is bling-tastic thanks to all the gold holographic glitter-- really shines! It freaked out my camera a little-- I should mattify and take a photo to capture it a bit better. Have a happy Thanksgiving everyone!
