Good after noon, lovelies!
Today I have 18 out of the 24 colors from the 2012 Glitter Specialty Collection from Jordana. The six remaining shades have yet to be released, but is coming soon.
This is going to be a LONG post so let's get started! :)
A clear base infused with iridescent fine & hex glitters. Personally, I would use this as a layering polish. I imagine layering this over a darker polish to bask in all its glory. This was 2 coats.
A combination of both fine & hex silver glitters suspended in a clear base. The glitter was beautifully and generously distributed over each nail. This was 2 coats and is opaque enough to wear alone. I suppose a third coat would have covered up the bald spots.
A multi-colored combination of both micro and small hex glitters suspended in a clear base. A colorful mixture of silver, gold, magenta, aqua, green, and red. It's a party on your nails! Even distribution of glitter and is beautiful alone or used as layering. This was 3 coats.
A clear base infused with fine gold glitter and holographic diamond glitter. I found this one a bit tricky to apply since the diamond glitters were a bit difficult to load onto the brush. I needed to dip the brush back into the formula and hope that more diamonds would appear. Nonetheless, it's nice alone or used as a layering polish. This was 2 coats.
Funky Gold Town
Gold at your fingertips! A clear based infused with gorgeous, gold hex glitters. I love how this gives the illusion of "rigid" glitter. This was 2 coats and as you can see, the glitter was applied generously over each nail. I prefer using this as a layering polish.
A lightly tinted copper base infused with both copper/orange fine & hex glitters. Although the base is slightly tinted, I doubt it will effect the base(if used) color. I recommend using this as a layering nail polish. I went through my stash and found nothing similar, a true beauty.
One of my favorites from this collection! A clear base infused with gold & copper fine and hex glitters. The perfect fall glitter in my opinion! This is beautiful alone or used as layering. This was 2 generous coats.
Another favorite from this collection! A unique combination of fine gold glitter & red, aqua, and gold hex glitters suspended in a clear base. Again, there is nothing is my stash that is similar to this beauty! This was 2 coats of perfectly distributed glitter. AMAZING!
A tinted dusty pink base infused with super fine pinky-silver glitter and holographic hex glitters. I recommend using this alone as this is pretty opaque after 1 coat. As I've stated in the past, I'm not a huge fan of pink glitters, but the name def. suits the nail polish!
A clear base infused with fine and hex pink glitters. Now this is a pink I can work with! If I had to use a pink glitter, it would have to be similar to this, transparent and sparse in some areas. This was 2 generous coats.
A clear base infused with fine red glitter, magenta, gold, and aqua hex glitters. Even distribution of glitter after 2 coats. Like Lunar Lights, I highly recommend using a base color as this allows you to see it's true beauty. (Refer to bottom images)
A packed combination of fine and small hex lavender glitter. Like Fairy Dust, I recommend using this alone as it is opaque after 1 coat. Application was perfect and applied easily. This was 2 generous coats.
A simple, yet beautiful combination of both aqua/teal micro and hex glitters suspended in a tinted base. I love how you can wear this alone or use this as layering. This was 2 coats and is def. a staple in my stash!
A combination of bright green fine and hex glitters infused in a tinted green base. Like Celestial, both bases are tinted which helps achieve its opacity. Alone or layered, either way, it's gorgeous! This was 2 coats.
A tinted bluish base infused with both aqua/blue fine and hex glitters. Again, same scenario with Celestial and Green Glitz; perfect alone or layered. This was 2 coats.
A clear base infused with fine, aqua glitter & aqua, green, and silver hex glitters. I recommend using this layered, but I suppose you could wear it alone if you like. The glitters were dispersed evenly throughout each nail after 2 coats. Another must have for me!
LA City Nights
A combination of magenta/purple fine glitter and aqua/blue hex glitter. This one was a pain to apply and remove! I suppose using a colored base would have made this more fun to work with, but never again will I wear this alone! -_- Don't get me wrong, it's beautiful, but was messy to apply alone. This was 2 coats.

L-R: Gemstones, Cosmic, Sequins, and Magenta Magic(not pictured above).
See how beautifully they transform under a darker base? Beautiful!
I'll say it now, Magenta magic over Jordana Black is everything I had hope Revlon's Facets of Fuchsia to be! This combination is wayyy better in my opinion!
Overall: I love these beauties! Some were a bit tricky to apply, but if it's gorgeous, I'll put in the extra effort! ;) I love how this collection offers 24 unique glitters that can be worn alone or layered. Great quality, great formula and application, and great range of colors! For $2.99 a piece, it's a no brainier!
All 18 shades are now available directly from the Jordana website. 12 shades will launch this February at Kmart.(01 Magenta Magic, 02 Celebration, 06 Fairy Dust, 08 Sequins, 10 Gemstones, 11 Cosmic, 12 Celestial, 14 LA City Nights, 15 Blue Bash, 17 Copper Blaze, 21 Funky Gold Town, and 23 Rhinestones.)
