Polish Finish Series: Glass Fleck

Hi there!
Today's episode of the Polish Finish Series is about Glass Flecks. Glass Fleck polishes contain glitter that looks a little like glass particles. The glitter is bigger and definitely visible. For the base, they use mainly Jelly polishes, hardly ever cremes (here *click* I talked about the Jelly finish, and here *click* about the Creme). Therefore, they apply rather sheer in the beginning and need most of the time 3 coats.
Very often, the glass fleck color is gold. When you have a polish with a strong golden glittery shimmer, it is most certainly a glass fleck. The background colors are most of the time bright, these polishes really stand out.
Especially China Glaze and Zoya are well-known for their glass flecks and have even whole collections with just glass flecks, like China Glaze's Summer Days Collection and Zoya's Sunshine Collection. But also other brands produce polishes with this finish.
A glass fleck is one of the finishes that gives you the prettiness of a glitter, without the pain when it comes to removal. But they can still be a bit difficult to remove.
The example polishes I want to show you are both from the Collections I already mentioned. I'm sorry I couldn't find any drugstore polishes in my stash with this finish.
Here's the first one, Apple by Zoya. It's a bright green with golden glass flecks. Here *click* showed it to you on my nails. It needs 3 coats.
The other polish is Strawberry Fields by China Glaze. It's a bright pink with golden flecks. Here *click* is a NOTD with it. 3 coats here, too.
Do you like glass flecks? I do for sure :)
Until then,
xoxo, Misch
