All That Glitters Plum & Plummer Layering and Swatches.

I bought this All That Glitters polish from one of the lovely ladies from our Nail Polish Addicts group – and I can’t remember who! *wails*. If you are reading this, and it was you, let me know so I can credit your awesomeness, ok? ๐Ÿ˜€ I took one look at it in the bottle, and decided to layer it – firstly over another new to me polish-ย  this one from my Sister V – this is L.A. Colors Metallic Purple.


It is metallic, and it is purple. A lilac kind of purple.


Very pretty, and the two coats shown here covered very nicely. Blingy in the sunlight like foils are, I do enjoy that!

And then… with one thin coat of Plum and Plummer.




Sorry, I know this is not the polishes fault, it’s the combo and the fact I cannot apply an even coat, but this did NOTHING for me. SO, added another coat of Plumย  &ย  Plummer, to try and even out the patchiness, but that didn’t help a lot.

Probably doesn’t help that I don’t like pink THAT much. No top coat, and plenty of glitter on my cuticles. ARGH! WHERE HAVE MY SKILLZ GONE!

So, ok, rip it off quickly and put Plum and Plummer over one coat of Kleancolor Black, plus China Glaze Fast Forward.


This did look much better, even with black cuticles caused by afore-lamented lack of skillz.


One thing that annoyed me about Plum & Plummer is the strange plum glitters. I’m guessing they are what gave the polish it’s name, but they are LUMPY! Like little pretty rocks. Which is a shame because I do like their colour, it’s quite unique I think.


Maybe I’ll try this over a plum next time, and matchy match it ๐Ÿ™‚

Have a great day

  1. Wait up! Theres a group for people like us?

    • we have one for NZ Polish Addicts, but we really should set up a global one – emphasis on fun, and a supportive environment! There’s probably enough of us to warrant it… ๐Ÿ˜€

  2. I have this polish too and I just dont think I like it. Nothing I use it with works out.

    • I am really thinking that might be the case! Eeeek. In which case, I guess I’ll paint with it, or hang it in front of a window as a light catcher ๐Ÿ˜€ Thanks for reading! (quiet internal squeal as I love your blog!)
