Here is Yellow Topaz Glitter, from the new Barry M ‘Jewel Glitter’ Collection. This one was pretty hard to photograph, it keeps turning green in my camera but it’s a very distinctive yellow-gold.
This is a super pretty gold topcoat – it does work as a standalone polish, but also builds up to near-opacity at 4 coats, as shown. There is a mixture of large yellow-gold hexagonal glitter, medium sized yellow-gold hexagonal glitter, large holographic hexagonal glitter and very small holographic glitter, all suspended in a clear base.
Yellow Topaz Glitter applied fairly easily, as glittery topcoats go. The glitter applied fairly evenly and only required a teeny tiny bit of pushing around/dabbing it on in order to position it. The polish dried quickly, and was quite smooth in finish. As you can probably tell it’s not very opaque, so is perhaps best used as a topcoat.
I don’t love Yellow Topaz Glitter as much as some of the other Jewel Glitters, but I am a fan of the unique colour tone of the glitter – it’s not true gold but it’s not true yellow either, somewhere in between. Not like anything in my collection, which is quite a feat!
What do you think of this glitter? Gold fans, have you seen anything like this before?
Yellow Topaz Glitter is one of seven new glitters in the Barry M ‘Jewel Glitter’ range: Pink Sapphire Glitter, Rose Quartz Glitter, Amethyst Glitter, Ruby Glitter, Gold Mine Glitter, Yellow Topaz Glitter and Diamond Glitter. Which ones will you be getting?
