Essie Sand Tropez and Sally Hansen Gem Crush Big Money

I realized that I have worn Essie's Sand Tropez several times, but I've never gotten a swatch posted on Nightly Nails. It made a good base for Sally Hansen Gem Crush Big Money, so I went ahead and snapped a photo of it on its own.
Sand Tropez is a nude - it reminds me a lot of Zoya Farah, although maybe a bit darker? I love shades like this when I need a palette cleanser, and they make a good "underwear" base too. I found this very easy to work with and I only needed two coats.
The only Sally Hansen Gem Crush I ended up getting was Big Money - I think I was a bit on glitter overload at the time these came out, but my mom loved all of them so much, she bought them all. Big Money is really cool and unusual looking to me though, it's a sandy tan metallic glitter with bits of lilac glitter interspersed throughout. I'm sure I could probably layer this up on its own, maybe three coats for complete opacity? Because the one coat I put over Sand Tropez had pretty good coverage. Also, I could swipe this and not have to pat it!
This to me came out to be a super pretty combo.




Adds a bit of bling to a nude base! Really cool, I think.
