As I loudly explained yesterday, my new favourite person is Jenna from Lacquistry for her incredible generosity in sending me the mother of all glittery packages. The hardest part though, was choosing. Herein lies where I got myself into trouble. I chose what turned out to be a very very small hex glitter because I was intoxicated by the sparkly. I was planning to do all five nails on my right hand but it was all of a sudden 1.15am and I'd done my thumb and ring finger so there's that. The result, though, is so sparkly it has to be my second favourite mani I've ever done.
First up, I started with two coats of my favourite neon pink, Urban Outfitters Hottub. Starting with my thumb, I picked up each and every piece of fuchsia glitter and covered my nail, using my usual technique. I'm not going to lie, this took a long time. Like, a long time. BUT LOOK AT THE RESULT. I'm going to use the same simile as my last full, holo, glitter mani: it's like pressing your face into a sparkly mermaid's tail, but this time a girl mermaid! Cos you know, pink for girls, blue for boys. No idea how I'm going to handle taking this off, emotionally.
The Verdict: I wish I could have finished this, do it full coverage. If it doesn't die by the time I get home tonight, I may well do it. It's so sparkly, so alive, It's amazing.
