So I know I just did a post about my new holographic bar glitter but I don't care, it's sparkly so you'll probably see a lot of this in the next little while. Having just tried stripes the other day, I wanted to see what the horizontal version would look like and it hit me: this could make for an awesome French tip!
To start, I applied three coats of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise! It doesn't have the best consistency in the world (you really need the three coats) but the colour is so fantastic I can look past it. Using a cheap top coat and working from left to right, I went to town with the glitter. You have to be careful when working with such skinny glitter pieces - too much top coat and it will go over the glitter and look icky. You can see that happening a bit on my middle finger. Don't do that. Very thin coats of glitter are your friend. Once I was done, I put a preliminary coat of Seche Vite on to stick it all down then I trimmed the glitter that was overhanging the tips of my nails. Another coat and DONE.
The Verdict: I'm not happy with how my middle finger came out (got a bit too carried away with getting rid of the extra glitter) but all in all I think this came out awesome. I just love that the glitter is all holographic, just makes it that much more awesome.
Cos I'm doing this now too, here's a Vine of this mani in action:
You can find the glitter here at MASH nails.
This product was sent to me for my unbiased review.
