Sparkles by Julie: Bubble Gum and Waterlily

Today, I have another new-to-me indie brand to share with you - Sparkles By Julie!

Waterlily. 2 coats.
A delicate shimmery-white with silver, gold and blue glitters. The white base reminds me of Orly Au Champagne - very soft and pretty. I'm especially loving how the gold and blue glitters go with the white base - it looks like something a Greek goddess would wear. :L

Bubble Gum. 2 coats.
The most girly color since pink was invented! This is what Barbie would wear on dates with Ken. This nail polish is a sheer pink base packed with purple, pink and holographic glitter in different shapes and sizes.
Bubble Gum is a stunner in the bottle. Holographic glitters swimming in a rich coral-pink base. The polish has a frosty finish though so you have to be careful with brushstrokes. I have also noticed that the frosty base tends to swallow up some of the smaller glitters. It dries bumpier than Waterlily so I used a second coat of top coat for the swatch.

Application is pretty good. The brush (I used a mini bottle) is easy to control and the formula is smooth. My only gripe is that the larger glitters are harder to fish out as they tend to cling on to the sides of the bottle even after a few hard shakes. The smaller glitters needed no fishing though and they spread out evenly onto the nails.

No prizes for guessing which one is my fav! I'm in love with Waterlily! It is really unique and the color combination is just breathtakingly gorgeous.
