|China Glaze - Mahoganie 80398|
The 50 specialty glitters was an amazing collection. I mean, 50 glitters! I got my paws on 2 others from this collection: One is Atlantis, a stunning dark teal with similar glitters as Mahoganie. And the other one is mahoganie's little brother, Ginger. That one was even harder to come by over here. All these beauties have been discontinued, sadly enough.
So the color, it's a beautiful warm medium brown, and it is really packed with fine silver and holographic glitter. Once this baby is under the sun, it's amazing! So much colorful glitter! And like I said before, I love how warm this color is and how it makes you look so tanned.
The application is also really good. If you wanted to you can get away with one coat, but as I prefer to start with a thinner coat for better drying time, I did 2. That was last night.. then I played my guitar and I messed up my half-dried polish. So today I put a third coat + top coat (Nailtek II) for these pictures. But really, 2 coats is usually more than enough for this highly pigmented buttery baby. Very creamy, self-levelling, very easy to apply. I would advise you to use topcoat to make the surface more smooth (a bit bumpy) and shiny and to make the glitters pop out better. Looking at my photos, I could even have done with a second top coat as it still looks slightly gritty. Update: Next day I added another layer of top coat, it's much smoother, see photos for the result =)
Get it while you can, because I think availability is limited.

Look at those pretty shiny glitters! The bottle shows a more red leaning color, that is not there in real life. It is a true brown. The pictures in artificial and natural light are pretty color accurate though.

The above picture is very color accurate, and look at that holographic microglitter! Like Fairy Dust!

Sorry, I couldn't resist taking this pretty brown with my owl curtains =3 Looks a bit too red again, because of the flash. But shows the glitters really well!
