I swear glitter talks to me. "Hey, you don't need to try anything new! You can just use us again! Who cares you've already done a bunch of glitter mosaics this week! Doooo eeet" So of course I relent because glitter is amazing. It's getting harder and harder to find an interesting base colour so I tend to fall back on my favourites. That's how this ridiculous rainbow aztec-y mani came about.
To start, I applied three coats of the always amazing China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise. It's just such a brilliant colour I can overlook the fact it gets a little streaky in the first few coats. Evens out so it's ok. I then went to work with the square glitter that came in the same pot as the hex matte glitter I've been using recently. I found it easiest to start at the cuticle with your bottom colour then build a column straight up. It's straightforward to then build out each side and seal with top coat. This counts as aztec, right? I want to get in on that sweet, sweet A-Z challenge going on over at RedditLaqueristas.
The Verdict: Some of the glitter is a bit wonky but I'm happy with the overall result. Certainly eye-catching for a non-holo mani, even though the green blends in more than I'd like. Yay glitter!
