Ruby White Tips - Sweet Cornelius

St. Patrick's Day may be over, but you're still in luck - with another gorgeous polish from Ruby White Tips called Sweet Faced Cornelius from her Bat World Sanctuary Collection. The Bat World Sanctuary is a refuge for bats that cannot be released back into the wild from either injury, orphaned, or bats that were captured and sold illegally. Fifty percent of Sweet Cornelius proceeds go to the Sanctuary, along with several others of Ruby White Tips Bat World Sanctuary Collection.

Cornelius is a clear suspension based polish with brilliant emerald and gold flakes, with emerald glitter. This little guy can be worn solo - being opaque in about 3-4 coats.
In the first two photos, Cornelius is featured on his own. First finger is one regular coat, middle finger is two regular coats, ring finger is three coats, and the pinkie is four, all topped with one coat of HK Girl. The formula for Cornelius is just wonderful, it's thick enough to keep hold of all those lovely glitters and flakes but still applies perfectly, and dries very well, with a slight texture to it. I do recommend to apply carefully, cause clean up is always interesting with polish with such small flakes and glitter, however, that fact would never stop me from buying a polish I wanted.





Now I love Cornelius nude, it's most definitely a beautiful polish. But I have to be honest, I really loved this as a topper, specifically over black. This fabulous combination is one coat of Ulta's Little Black Dress with one good coat of Sweet Cornelius, and two coats of HK Girl. 
This is Cornelius over one coat of Sinful Colors Mint Apple. I really loved this one too. It's so light and spring time-ish. 
Ruby White Tips can be found here on Etsy - I promise you will not regret peeking at her shop and you won't be able to leave it without some polished amaingness!!  I'm happy to admit that I was lusting after B.B, Kiddo and P. Wagon from her shop long before I got my hands on Cornelius.
