I do so very much enjoy a good mail package, as I've sighed over on multiple occasions. Particularly excited was I when I received a new, surprisingly large pot of holo silver glitter in the mail from ebay. It's quite a small glitter and I was so sorely tempted to do full Mermaid Nails with it but alas, alack, it is hard to fine the probable two hours that full coverage with glitter this small would take. I had to use it, so time for glitter polka dots instead!
To start with, I added two coats of Revlon Midnight Affair, a lovely deep blue. Application was really nice on this one, you could easily stay with two coats. Then, following the steps here but spacing the glitter out more, I covered each of my nails with the holo silver glitter. THIS IS SO SPARKLY I DON'T EVEN KNOW....THINGS....SPARKLYYYYYYYYY. The elevator at work has lovely down lights and everyone looked at me funny today as I couldn't stop waving my hands around under the lights. It seriously looks like I have LEDs on my nails, it's that spangly.
|Gratuitous blurred shot. Imagine this but at least twice as sparkly.|
The Verdict: Revlon Midnight Affair is a really nice deep navy blue, if it's possible you don't have something like this already. The glitter on the other hand, OMG SO SPARKLY I AM ACTUALLY LEAVING IT ON FOR MORE THAN 24 HOURS WHICH NEVER EVER HAPPENS :D
WOW! These are gorgeous! I am in love with the sparkle! Great job.ReplyDelete
It's perfect! PERFECT!! Did it take you long positioning the glitter? I feel like that must have taken a whole lot of work!ReplyDelete

I LOVE THIS!!! I just recently tried hand placing glitter (thanks to you!) with smallish gold hexes over Revlon Vixen and was obsessed with it for like 4 days - a crazy long time for me to not change my nails! You are so good at this, though, my hand-placing wasn't nearly as neat as yours! How do you do it!?ReplyDelete
Did you take pictures?? I really want to seeeeeee :D:DDelete
Wow! This is so pretty and eye-catching :)ReplyDelete
