Sparkling Garbage For Audrey

I'm a big fan of blue-green and holographic polishes. So when I walked past an Orly display the other day and spotted Sparkling Garbage, a lovely teal holo glitter, there was no question that it would be the newest addition to my collection.

Since Sparkling Garbage isn't quite opaque on its own, I chose to begin this manicure with two coats of China Glaze For Audrey.

Over that, I layered two coats of Orly Sparkling Garbage, and finished with a coat of Seche Vite top coat.

Polishes like these are infuriating to photograph, they never reveal their true beauty in pictures. Sparkling Garbage is densely packed with very fine holographic glitter that sparkles and shines in any light, and is especially breathtaking in direct sunlight. I tried and tried to capture the amazing holographic nature of this polish, just trust me that it is 100x more stunning in person! Below I have added a shot taken indoors with flash that shows a bit of what I'm attempting to describe. 

Products Used:
One coat Beauty Secrets Moisturizing Base Coat
Two coats China Glaze For Audrey
Two coats Orly Sparkling Garbage
One coat Seche Vite Top Coat


  1. I've already said this on MUT but OMG...THIS! <3

  2. Whoa! I was totally late for the party on MUT, so I decided to just say it here: that color combo is just amazing! Seriously, Sparkling Garbage is a must have and I already ordered a bottle after seeing your mani :)

  3. Thanks! I loved this combination :)

  4. Funny, I spotted Sparkling Garbage and snapped it up because I immediately thought about pairing it with For Audrey! As lovely as these photos are, they truly don't begin to do justice to the combination. Today I removed it and tried another combination - Sparkling Garbage over China Glaze Four Leaf Clover. Another winner!
