Greatest Strategies for Smoothing Out and Eradicating Glitter *up to date 7/12/23*
Noodles Nail Polish is all concerning the glitter, on a regular basis. Whereas all of us love the bling, it may be a ache to take away. Oh, and it may be identified to eat topcoat which leaves texture on the nail after it dries. If you’re particularly delicate to feeling your polish, make certain your topcoat is a thick one, or apply a second coat of a thinner one.
As an alternative of making use of 2 coats of thick topcoat, a number of indie manufacturers have come out with a product that you just use after your final coat of polish and earlier than your topcoat. These are usually thick and “fill in” the gaps left from the glitter. Listed below are a number of merchandise I take advantage of and advocate (in no explicit order):
6. Clean and Shine Duo from Esmaltes da Kelly (accessible by Polish Pickup some months)
To make use of these glitter grabbing topcoats, it is best to let the polish to dry for a number of minutes earlier than making use of. In the event you apply the glitter grabber too shortly, the nail polish can eat up the glitter grabber a bit, making the polish proceed to have a bit texture, even after the addition of a quick-dry topcoat. Utilizing it this manner requires a bit extra persistence, nevertheless it’s completely value it.
Noodles Nail Polish Autumn Soul (2 coats)
We’re beginning off with a bang with Autumn Soul which is a deep burgundy crelly (leaning jelly) base with metallic orange/copper/garnet/rose/fuchsia/plum glitters, pink holo glitters, and a contact of orange micro flakes. I say this leans extra of a jelly end as a result of it seems to be a bit extra squishy do not you suppose? It is deep with out being too darkish so you may actually see the combination of all of the glitters. Regardless of being extra jelly-like, it wanted simply 2 easy coats for full protection. It can dry with texture from all of the glitters, so see above for my suggestions to get a easy end.
Up subsequent we now have Higher in a Sweater which is a deep deep teal crelly base with copper/gold/pink/greeb colour shifting flakes, orange/inexperienced iridescent glitters, and metallic copper/aqua/mild inexperienced glitters. Simply have a look at that final picture and that big flake deep in that base (no, that is not a bizarre shadow)! Natalie is the most effective at combining glitter with flakes, and that is no exception. That is one other 2-coater, and it additionally dries with a number of texture. Be certain to double up on topcoat, or add a layer of a glitter smoothing topcoat.
The final assortment from Noodles Nail Polish featured all glitter toppers, however for this set, there’s just one. Fall Babe is a holo glitter topper with metallic raspberry, orange, and copper glitters. That is a kind of toppers that will look excellent over any heat colours and I used a model new shade from the Zoya Enamored Assortment as my base. I did not strive utilizing this by itself, nevertheless it may in all probability be constructed up in 3 heavy coats. You could possibly get away with only a common coat of topcoat due to that scattered holo end, however it can rely on what topcoat you utilize (the thicker the higher).
You already know it would not be a fall Noodles Nail Polish assortment with out a white crelly! Effectively, it is not precisely white, nevertheless it’s undoubtedly a cream-colored end. Harvest Dream is a cream crelly base with copper shimmer, metallic rose/copper/lavender glitters, and pink matte and metallic glitters. I am actually loving that lavender and pink combo right here; you all the time must anticipate the surprising with Natalie’s colour mixtures. I believed this will want 3 coats, however I received away with simply 2 thicker coats with no points. In the event you use actually skinny coats, you might want a 3rd. That is one other one that may dry with texture from all of the glitter.
Arms down, that is my favourite polish from the gathering. Give me all of the dusty purple polishes. Hazy Harbors is the sister polish to final 12 months’s bestselling polish, Misty Harbors. The truth is, Misty Harbors now has a everlasting spot on the NNP web site! Anyway, Hazy Harbors is a dusty lilac crelly base with copper/rose/garnet/caramel metallic glitters in varied hexagonal shapes. I really like the whole lot about this one. Proven is 2 coats and it does dry with texture from the glitters.
Moonlight Magic is one other high choose of mine from the gathering. I did my finest to point out you the shiftiness that it has. It is a medium gray crelly that leans purple that shifts pink/gold/inexperienced with copper holo glitters and bronze metallic micro flakes. The entire glitters are fairly small and do not add a lot texture to this one, so I feel you can use only a common topcoat (I used a glitter smoothing topcoat, however that was simply in case it was wanted). This one is so enjoyable and modern-looking.
Evenings in October in North Carolina are usually pretty heat, however in lots of components of the US, that is prime time for crisp evenings. October Evenings the polish undoubtedly has that deep and funky feeling to it. It is a deep plum crelly base with metallic periwinkle/garnet/raspberry/orange/lavender/rose/lilac/copper/pink glitters in hexagonal shapes.

Noodles Nail Polish Pumpkin The whole lot (3 coats)
Final, however actually not least, we now have my remaining high choose from the gathering, Pumpkin The whole lot. I really like orange, and that is the right pumpkin shade. What’s fall or Halloween with out an orange, proper? Pumpkin The whole lot is a medium orange crelly base with gold flakes, bronze microflakes, copper shimmer, and a contact of superb copper holo glitters. This one was a bit on the sheer facet, so I used 3 thinner coats for full opacity. It additionally appeared to dry with much less texture because it had extra flakes and shimmer than glitter, so a single coat of topcoat ought to easy all of it out.
