Pipe Dream Polish What You Are Or What Swatches & Review

Disclaimer:  These polishes were offered at a reduced price or at no charge to manicuremanifesto.com in exchange for published reviews.  All reviews are fair, honest and reflect my personal opinion.

I decided it was time for a good ol' glitter polish.  What You Are Or What is a purple base filled with purple, fuchsia, blue and teal glitter of various sizes.  I decided to use this as a topper since I didn't feel like spending hours trying to get the glitter off in a few days, haha.

I used one coat of What You Are Or What over Zoya Natty (a dark blue-grey).  I did have to do some dabbing to get the glitter even over my entire nail.  If I just brushed it on normally most of the larger hex glitters ended up near the top of my nail.  What I love about this is how smoothly it dried even though it was full of glitter.  I just had to use one layer of a thin topcoat to make it perfectly smooth.  No Gelous needed here.

The photos show one coat of Pipe Dream Polish What You Are Or What over Zoya Natty with one coat of CND Super Shiney top coat.  The picture on the bottom right was taken in the shade, the rest were taken in direct sunlight.  I continue to be impressed by Pipe Dream polish considering how young of a brand it is.  Getting glitters to dry smoothly is tough!  If you want a bottle of your very own head over to their Etsy store at https://www.etsy.com/shop/pipedreampolish.  What do you think of this glitter combo? Do you like glitter toppers or do you prefer something with more coverage?
