Sparkling Garbage consists of a very sheer, pale teal base that's jam-packed with holographic microglitter. It's incredibly sparkly and so, so stunning! The formula is great and it dries quickly. You can use it as a layering polish or on its own. Full opacity can be achieved in 3-4 coats (I used 3).
In bright sun
Blurry to show sparkle!
Pretty Ugly is a bright aqua blue filled with blue microshimmer. The formula is awful and streaky, so you have to kind of hope that the streaks in each coat don't align and leave a bald patch. It takes about 3-4 coats to get it looking decent (I used 3). It's such a shame, because the color itself is gorgeous. Dry time was average.
Outside, in sun
Outside, in extra-crappy sunlight. It's a bit lighter and less vampy in person.
I think I could have passed on Pretty Ugly and Beautiful Disaster, but Sparkling Garbage is definitely a must-have!
