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?
