NYX Girls Polish: Dreamy Glitter and Gilded Glitter (swatches & review)
I hope you all are having a good week so far! Today I’ve got two NYX Girls polishes to share with you, Gilded Glitter and Dreamy Glitter. There are a lot of pictures here so I’ll just get right to it. I used Seche Vite top coat and Sally Hansen Nail Quencher base coat for all swatches shown today.
Dreamy Glitter is a fun suspension base glitter filled with star glitter, and iridescent micro-glitter and hex glitter. As with other suspension based glitters, this one can be a little tricky to work with. The hex and star glitter have a tendency to want to hide out inside the bottle. My trick for this is to bring as much of the hex and star glitter up to the neck of the bottle, then pick it up on my brush from there. You also want to wait a bit between coats so you don’t accidentally pick up the glitter you already painted onto your nails. Hopefully that made sense to someone.
This is two coats of Dreamy Glitter. I decided to layer this over two coats of Dreamy Poppy by Wet n Wild, a pretty bright pink coral creme. Even though Dreamy Glitter is thick, this all dried rather quickly. After a medium thick coat of Seche Vite this layering combo was smooth as glass. I also just now realized as I was typing this that I layered two “dreamy” named polishes together.

And here’s Wet n Wild Dreamy Poppy by itself, I really love this color. ^_^
Gilded Glitter is an extremely versatile polish, and it’s quickly becoming one of my favorites to layer with. It has a clear/gold tinged base with gold micro-glitter and irregular gold flecks.
This is two thin coats of Gilded Glitter layered over one coat of Black Creme by Wet n Wild. Application with this one was much easier than Dreamy Glitter. It has a thin spreadable formula that yielded a lot of glitter per brush stroke.

These are my first two glitters from NYX Girls but they certainly will not be my last. The brand has an extensive nail polish line (including NYX Salon and regular NYX polishes) and the color range is quite massive. The price point is extremely budget friendly so even it I purchase I dud I wouldn’t be devastated. Even though it was a little difficult to work with, I really like Dreamy Glitter. It’s a unique polish and certainly something I didn’t have in my collection previously. I feel the same about Gilded Glitter, the layer possibilities for this one seem endless! You can definitely expect it to make an appearance in future layering experiments (you can see previous layerings [HERE]. ^_^
Dreamy Glitter, Gilded Gold, and other NYX Girls nail polishes can be purchased from cherryculture.com. Retail cost is $1.99/ea for a .43 fl oz sized bottle of polish.
