Lately I've been trying to get a bit more creative with my nails. I've visited arts and crafts stores and dollar stores, hoping to find something I could stick on my nails. I was in luck at a very shady dollar store yesterday and found a "Nail and Sparkly Art Decoration Kit" for the bank-busting price of $1.99. Sold! Inside was this tiny bottle of rhombus-shaped silver glitter and I just HAD to try them out.
Before we talk about the glitter in detail, let's look this lovely kelly green, Revlon Posh. A new colour from Revlon, it's a really pretty and applies really well. What you see in the pictures below is two coats.
Once Posh was applied but still tacky, I took an orange stick, spread the glitter out on on piece of card and set to work. As the polish was still a little wet, it was easy to stick them down. Working left to right, I lined up the glitter so it would create a checker-board pattern. Time consuming, but worth it!
Now, here's where I made a mistake. I've had a bottle of a top coat other than Seche Vite sitting on my desk for a while now and I figured, why not give it a shot! LOOK AT ALL THE STUPID BUBBLES IT LEFT ON MY MIRROR-BALLS! Never using that one again.
|I want to punch those bubbles so hard.
The Verdict: Love Revlon Posh, it's a perfect shade of sophisticated green. Also love differently-shaped glitter, who doesn't like mirror balls?
