holographic glitter nails


I was recently sent some little pots of nail glitters to have a play with and had a go with them the other night. I applied a topcoat straight onto my nails and then dipped my fingernails into the glitter pot, one at a time and brushed off the excess glitter from the skin around my nail with an eyeshadow brush and applied a topcoat over that to seal the effect. It really was that easy, and took less time than doing a regular manicure. I used the silver holographic glitter and found that it lasted a few days but I'm sure that used with a stronger topcoat like seche vite the look would last even longer. The site that sent me the glitter literally do every shade of glitter that you can imagine at £8.99 for 11g which is great value, but you can also get 3.5g pots for just £3.49.

  9. Look at that glitter! I love the holographic effect. I've never tried dipping my nail into glitter and then sealing with a topcoat, but it seems really effective.

  10. I do love a bit of holographic-ness. I wonder if that could be put into a clear polish and used in that way too? I'd be inclined to do my tips with a glitter, such a magpie.
