How has it taken me this long to realise that triangle glitter existed and that I should be all over it?? I'm silly. Anyway, it's a thing and it's amazing and I love it and it's so nice to have a change from hex glitter. It's so even and beautiful and matte and sparkly, there just aren't enough adjectives. Yeah so this is what it looks like when you mix 15 colours together on your nails. WONDERFUL THINGS. You might even be able to get this glitter too - it's going up on The Sparkly Shop this afternoon at 3pm. I swear though I just want to share the sparklies. Sorry for the self-promoting. Anyway, focus, glitter time!
Triangle glitter is such a dream to work with. You just have so many options for patterns! Mixing matte and holo glitter is the best too. The matte glitter has such great definition and holo is sparkly so together they are magical. I did my usual thing here, placing my column of glitter down the middle of my nail - I did three pieces of each row to make sure I was heading evenly - then building out the sides. I did try something different with the top coat! I bought a two pack of Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polish and it turns out the top coat is amazing. No shrinking, wears really well and dries fast. I get nowhere near the tip wear I'm normally plagued with. The gel is eh but the top coat is awesome. Anyway, yeah, two coats of that and I was set.
The Verdict: I think I have a new favourite glitter. Hex will always have a place in my heart but it's so much fun to create new and interesting patterns with triangle glitter. There'll all super consistent in terms of size too.
Four different triangle glitter sets are going up on The Sparkly Shop at 3pm today, starting from $6.99. Woo!
