Review: Tokidoki Savana and Ciao Ciao

I'm afraid there's no escaping glitter round these here parts.  If it's not glitter mosaics, it's something with glitter in it.  If there isn't glitter in it, it gets glitter on it, dammit.  So I found these two Tokidoki polishes at Sephora on sale and once I got them home I couldn't help but do a gradient with them, they're just so sparkly.  Let's take a look at Ciao Ciao and Savana.

To start with, I added two coats of Savana.  As a glitter it's pretty opaque so with three coats you'd just about be done.  Next, I added a coat of Ciao Ciao two thirds of the way down my nail, wiping most of the polish off the brush before applying, to get a soft line.  I then did the same with Savana, to make sure the line blended properly.  Being that both these polishes are micro glitter in a clear base, you can really add as may coats as you like and it will actually dry.  I then kept going up the nail, half way and then just the end, for the full gradient. 






The Verdict: Yep, nothing like a purely glitter polish that doesn't need a million coats to be opaque.  It blends really nicely too.
