notd | get carried away

To completely contradict my last nail related post I thought I'd paint my nails black and glittery. You may have noticed the lack of NOTDs on here over the past month or so, which is due to me wanting to give my nails a break and a good dose of OPI Nail Envy to stop them doing the whole peeling and snapping act they've been putting up lately.
The gorgeous glitter polish featured, China Glaze Get Carried Away from the recent Cirque Du Soleil: Worlds Away collection, comes courtesy of Katie from our makeup swap (who's parcel from me still hasn't showed up, I'm sending out a replacement next week and I'd just like to thank her for being so patient and understanding whilst I rip my hair out in frustration over Royal Mail) and is such a pretty combination of red, silver and black large hexagonal glitter, tiny silver glitter and black bar glitter.
I used two coats on my ring finger, and as I didn't want it to be too full-on I just dabbed some of the glitter polish on the tips of my other fingernails which ended up resembling something french manicure-esque. For the black base I used two coats of Orly's Black Out and my top coat of choice was the NYC "In A New York Colour Minute" Quick Dry nail polish in Grand Central Station as it gives an extra glossy finish.
