NYX Mermaid Green with KleanColor Afternoon Picnic

 I was dying to try Afternoon Picnic because of the chunky glitter. Instead of using white that would probably make the large silver hex glitter not show as well I tried it with NYX Mermaid Green. 
 There was a bit of bubbling with Mermaid Green but other than that it was opaque in two coats and dried quickly. I have decided I do not like the NYX brush. It is small, thin and seems stiff to me. I had to go back to the bottle for more polish at least twice for most of my nails. 

 KleanColor's Afternoon Picnic has three sizes of hex glitter in several colors but is a pain to get on the brush sometimes. I kept dipping my brush in because there was no glitter on it. The first picture is one thick coat. 

 Since I love glitter one coat wasn't enough for me and I ended up doing three. 

 Have you tried NYX or KleanColor? What are you favorites? 


  1. I'm unfamiliar with both brands. NYX is slowly becoming available here though (expensive... of course). The base color is really pretty despite the trouble you had. It does show all the different colored glitter too. Pretty :)

  2. I do love the color, Kayono, but the brush and bubbles make me not so happy. The glitter is beautiful, so glad I broke down and ordered it! How much is NYX over there?

  3. I really like both Nyx Girls and Kleancolor. My fave Nyx Girls so far is Algae. This and the one in your previous post look amazing, but I haven't seen them in person before.

  4. I will have to try Algae next, ABOP. I bought it along with the others and it seems to be darker and more green than Pistachio.

  5. I love the glitter! *__*

  6. Glitter is one of my favorite things, Mitsuki90!
