I've just started at a new job and now I'm sure they don't mind sparkly nails and the word is out that my nails are usually not bad, I had to pull out all the stops and go mega sparkly. I've been into gold and silver holo glitter lately so why not use them together over a dark grey-brown polish?
To start, I applied two coats of Floss Gloss Party Bruise, a dark grey-brown creme polish with a great name. I've woken up with bruises this colour before. Next, using my cheapest top coat, I went to work with my glitter using my usual technique. This may look tricky to get spaced evenly but if you do a stripe down the middle of your nail and place them evenly, it's not too difficult to match the spacing as you fill out the sides. I like to add two coats of a top coat like Seche Vite to this because you don't want the glitter to escape.
The Verdict: I think this might actually hold the record for my most-commented-on nails ever. They were so sparkly, so holo-y, I must have had ten people comment on them throughout the day. I did manage to break my index nail half way through the day though :(
The Other Hand: It should be made clear that I really don't do both hands like this. It may be cheating but my camera set up only works for my right hand and I'm not that good at doing both hands the same. Instead, I used the same base colour and just sprinkled the same glitter over the wet polish. It doesn't look that different and if anyone asks, just show them your right hand!
