Guess what guys? The ridiculous amount of Hex Nail Charms I ordered a while back arrived! I've been seeing them all over the internet so of course I need them too. I probably shouldn't have ordered ~25 of them but whatcha gunna do. I needed something awesome to pair them with so why not a gradient with Ozotic holo polishes? Unicorns need rainbows, it's the law.
To start, I applied the usual two coats of Rimmel Black Satin. Once dry, I painted two thick stripes of Ozotic 531 (orangey) and 534 (purpley) on a makeup sponge and daubed it on my nails. I only did two coats of the gradient as I really like the scattered rainbow effect you get when you really lightly apply a holo polish. Once dry, I placed a drop of nail glue on my nail, attempted to stick the charm on, peeled it off my fingers/tweezers and finally got it stuck to my nail. I've used top coat, cheap nail glue and proper 3 second nail glue and trust me, if you're going to invest a dollar or so for each charm, get the proper nail glue. Even though my ring finger is a bit too curved for the unicorn and the horn sticks up a little, it still lasted all day. That's less likely to happen with other methods.
The Verdict: LOVE the charms, love the Ozotic polishes and my sparkly shoes, of course. These charms are just such a nice way to accent a nail without having to do anything complicated. And if you can get some rainbows in there too, of course that's going to make it even awesomer. Sparklies!
