Do You Wanna Fanta? may just be my favorite thermal ever. I love the combo of colors - especially for summer. It's a warm sensitive thermal which starts out a bright orange and turns an awesome watermelon pink with a touch of sparkle when warm. My swatch is two easy coats.
What A Blast has a clear base filled with red, white and blue glitter and silver stars. The base glows white in the dark. Serum No. 5 recommends swatching this over white to get the best glow. The glitter payoff was so good that I wanted to try it without a base. I was able to get it opaque in only two coats (with a little strategic dabbing).
My tip to keep heavy glitters from looking thick on the nail is to finish with a generous coat of quick-dry topcoat and let it barely dry to the touch. Then I take my fingertip and sort of push and mold the nail into shape. I finish with another generous coat of topcoat to smooth things out and cover any fingerprints. My "glow" swatch was done with a black light.
