A few months ago I spotted this glitter set in TK Maxx, and I couldn’t resist, it was so sparkly! There was a couple of different sets, and the one I chose has 12 extra fine glitters, and 12 chunky glitters. I’ve looked at it a few times since I bought it, but I thought it was going to be really messy to use!
I decided to use the fine amethyst first, and started off with 2 coats of Barry M’s Prickly Pear Gelly.
After the second coat, I painted a third, and applied the glitter one nail at a time. I had a folded sheet of paper underneath to catch the excess, and just poured it liberally all over my nail. Then I tapped my finger to get any loose off. I expected my fingers to be covered in glitter by the time I was finished, but surprisingly there wasn’t much stuck to my fingers, and it washed off easily.
My new Glisten & Glow HK Girl top coat arrived this morning from Rainbow Connection, and I knew this would be the perfect time to try it out. I didn’t want any loose glitter going in the new bottle, so I started off with one coat of cheap top coat, and then two coats of HK Girl. HK Girl was very quick drying, and left my mani very shiny!
Have you ever used loose glitter to create a sparkly mani?
