Summer, where art thou?

Does someone else feel like winter has been dragging on forever? Time to banish the gloom with some bright polish!
I was visiting the market with my mum and came across a brand I've never heard of before. It's called Paris Memories. The stall I got it from mostly sold flakies and glitter so I picked up two bottles. One of which I used in today's manicure.

So that's the new one on the left. As you can see, there's a lot going on in this polish. There are: big round glitters in the colours green/orange, small round glitters in the colours green/orange and small round glitters in the colour purple. It looks like it's in some kind of sheer lilac base, but that's not visible once applied on the nails.
On the right is China Glaze Lighthouse.

I didn't have a lot of time to come up with something more original than layering. But it looks really good, especially when the weather is overcast outside.

I was actually a bit disappointed with Lighthouse at first. The first two coats were super sheer and I almost gave up weren't it for the third coat. Somehow it magically transformed into a beautiful golden yellow, with good coverage.
The polish from Paris Memories (which doesn't seem to have a name or number) applies really well. The formula isn't too thick but also not runny. The flakies on the nails were the result of one coat. Not bad for a polish that cost me €1,50.

A while ago, I entered a giveaway on A Girl And Her Polish. She was giving away Revlon Whimsical and I thought I would give it a go. Yesterday she mailed me - I won! Aaaaaaah! I can't even believe it, because I never win anything. Can't wait 'till I have it!
