First is DS Lapis. It's a midnight blue opaque jelly filled to the brim with teeny silver glitter. It is very "night sky" looking. This is two coats. It's on the thick side, but not hard to work with at all. With texture polishes I always make sure to let them dry very well before I put another coat on for the best results.
I love Lapis with top coat, it's very sparkly. It smooths out with only one coat, where I've found most texture polishes require at least two. I've been using Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat recently and it's flippin' amazing. Expect a review soon.
And second is DS Pewter, which has a black smokey jelly base, the same tiny silver glitter as Lapis and larger silver glitter that's roundish-hexagonal shaped. I found it really easy to apply, like regular glitter polishes. This is two coats.
This is Pewter with a coat of HK Girl top coat. It's a toss up which way I like better, matte or shiny, because they're both really pretty. Which do you prefer? The base is darker when shiny and the glitter makes it really blingy.
