Sally Hansen Diamond Strength in Blushing Bride

I've been really into nail polish lately.  Normally I get tired of the maintenance, but for some reason I've been on a major kick recently.  I've been mostly avoiding dark colors due to the messiness in removal and I'm trying to get in the mood for spring with lighter and brighter colors.  Love glitter polish, but it's such a major pain to remove!  Found this Sally Hansen Diamond Strength, it was on sale or clearance I believe at Target.  I was of course immediately attracted to the bedazzled bottle.  I picked up two or three in this line, most were pearly frosty type pastels.  I wanted a more medium toned pink so I grabbed this shade, Blushing Bride 78.  I didn't realize until I applied it the first time that it's basically chock full of very fine glitter.  From a distance it's a metallic pink, but up close it's the fun of glitter.  Really loving this shade!

Picture without flash to see the glitter:


On my nails:

It is not the easiest to work with and the first time I wore it, it refused to dry after a couple hours.  This time I used a new Revlon Quick Dry Base Coat I just bought, 2 coats of the polish and a thick layer of Seche Vite top coat.  I do have a dent in my right hand index finger (user error no doubt), but other than that the Seche did its job and it was solid in an hour.
