I have a friend who is not only into nail polish but also named Laura. Things in common! So I asked her to challenge me for a nail design and green with glitter french tips was the winner. Turquoise was close enough to green, so away we go.
First up, three coats of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise (Neon). Application was a bit strange on this one as the first coat was extremely hard to control. By the third it was nice and even though, and look at the colour. It's so bright my camera was having trouble processing it and it never has a problem with the blue-green family. Once dry, I added a french tip to each nail with holographic silver square glitter using my normal glitter application technique. I found that you could fan the glitter out easily enough to get a solid french tip. You can usually push the glitter down from the edge of your nail, to make sure it's in the right spot.
The Verdict: Thank you Laura, you had a good idea. Gold might have been nice here too but I'm too taken with holo glitter to be able to choose a non-holo, if that makes sense.

Oooh interesting. Do one like this again but with the glitter pushed back a bit more, so it's like a band over the nail instead of the french tip too! (Y'know... if you feel like it =P)ReplyDelete
This is really cool! I'll be trying it out soon; great idea :)ReplyDelete
