Freak Show Polish: Tightrope Tutu

Because this polish is pink and sparkly, I HAD to swatch it first! Tightrope Tutu is a beautiful light pink jelly polish packed with turquoise and pink glitters in squares and hexes. It's gorgeous in the bottle and I could stare at it all day long if I could!

To start off this mani, I began with adding a base color to go underneath this polish. You could build up Tightrope Tutu on it's own but it is a jelly polish which means it'll take more coats to get full coverage. To make things easier, I applied three coats of Muchi, Muchi by Essie. Muchi, Muchi is a soft pink polish that I personally adore!

Once this dried, I added two coats of Tightrope Tutu right on top, followed by a matte top coat. For some reason I felt that mattifying these made it look much better, which has nothing to do with the polish, just personal opinion. And as you can see, these babies are killer.

As you can see, since Tightrope Tutu is slightly darker than Muchi Muchi, it did tint the whole look a little bit. I still really love the way this looks though! I had no problem with the glitter in this polish, I didn't need to fish for glitter or anything like that. It's truly packed with sparkle! 

Here's a closer look at Tightrope Tutu! I must give props to Carissa, I love how she paired pink and Turquoise together! They are truly the perfect pair, I can not stop staring at my nails! Here's my rating for this polish:

Application: Super easy to apply.

True to Color: It's as baby pink as it is in the bottle!

Dry Time: 1-2 minutes.

Consistency: Somewhat thin and very smooth. 

Coats Until Opaque: On it's own probably 3-4 coats. With undies, 2 coats will do.

Additional Comments: One of the prettiest polishes I own and I need more! The color combination is fabulous and I love it over Essie's Muchi, Muchi. I will definitely try this over more polishes. 

Final Rating: 10/10
