Hello lovelies! How has everyone’s weekend been so far? I feel like I’m finally starting to get my life back together (kind of) after Polish Con last weekend. My desk has been covered with new polishes all week, but I finally got it all put away and I feel like I can breathe again haha ( and, yes, the dramatics are necessary.) Anywho, I’m still playing catch up with the 31 Day Challenge so get ready for some glitter nails!
Here’s what I used:
I thought this year’s glitter manicure was a little more subtle than previous years (here and here,) but these are still quite sparkly! There isn’t an inspiration photo for this look since I went into it without a game plan, but they didn’t turn out too bad.
- Start by applying two (or three, oops) coats of My Favorite Sweater HDF.
- Apply a layer of Stellar.
- Then, add a layer of Lily Pads.
- Once the base is dry, paint the circles on using acrylic paint and a detail brush.
- Add a layer of Wishes, Cake & Glitter over that.
- Clean up.
- Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.
I’m on the fence on whether or not I really like this look. On one hand, I love how all the different glitters layered together, and it was nice to pull out some polishes that haven’t been getting much love. But the circle pattern, is just kind of meh. It isn’t adding anything special for me and I wish I had put the Holochondriac Polish glitter on underneath the pattern. A lot of people at work liked these those, so that’s cool! But, I want to know what you guys think. Are you a fan of this look? Or no?
Thanks so much for reading!! Check out the inLinkz below for more glitter-y nails!
