Gold. Gold gold gold gold, gold gold, goldy gold. My nails are so sparkly right now that it has apparently turned my brains to mush. That's ok cos spaaaarrrkly. Anyway, I've had quite a lot of people ask me how I do my glitter mosaic nails so last night I decided to record a time-lapse video and detailed photos of how I do them. I have to figure out how to turn a normal video into a time-lapse first so I figured I'd show you the final result first.
I'll ultimately replace this with a link to the tutorial but in the mean time, I have a summary of the steps used to create these nails here. I think something I'm missing from those steps are how strongly I must stress that the glitter all be of uniform size. For full coverage they have to be all the same size and be oriented the right way. The glitter doesn't seem to ever be fully hex, it always seems as though it's been squashed. That means you have to make sure that the glitter is rotated the right way.
Anyway, less typing, more pictures!
The Verdict: I don't know if I'll ever be able to top my electric blue nails but this has to be my second favourite. It almost looks as I wish I could get gold foil to turn out, it's so smooth. Mmm, sparkly :D
