Freya's Scowl is a glitter topper with translucent matte white hexes, iridescent squares and some shifting and shimmering base glitters which are rather hard to describe. It had great glitter distribution without the need for fishing, and I applied two coats for this mani over black, one dabbed and one just brushed on, with a generous amount of top coat.
I'm itching to try this one out on a nude/beige base to mimic Freya's actual colouring. There's so much going on with this polish, just when I think I've seen all there is to see with the polish, I'd move my fingers and BAM more lush sparkle to lose myself in.

Hello everybody, just wanted to check in and assure you all that I'm still here. I am having internet connection issues at the moment and have barely any signal on my phone so my access to blogger, Twitter etc has been cut off. I hope to be back soon, and in the meantime, happy polishing!!

For my version of Dots Within Dots, I used three recent purchases from budget Aussie brand Mode Cosmetics. The base colour, Hook Me Up, was almost a one-coater, and is a similar colour to OPI's Can't Find My Czech Book, but not enough to be a dupe. I then put the Mode matte topcoat over the blue, and waited for it to dry.
Moving onto the contrast colour, I used neon green Whatev, making large and small dots randomly on the nail. Once those dried a little, I dotted the blue inside the larger dots and then I had my happy little donuts. After the mandatory waiting period for those dots to dry, I topped the blue dots with the same matte topcoat, although I had a little trouble with my index finger not being totally dry.
Handy hint: Don't be impatient and matte your dots too early, you might stuff up and end up taking mainly 3 finger shots because of the way the light hits your weird cratered index finger polish donuts....
