Dipped in Glitter



Barry M Red Glitter

A quick nails of the day post - so glad I took photos of this when I did as about five minutes afterwards I had a bit of a fight with the hoover and ended up smudging them. A thick coat of glitter does not dry quickly!!

All I did here was apply a thin coat of glitter, starting about 1/4 of the way up my nail, then added more coats starting further and further up until the top of the nail was fully coated in glitter. The aim was for a sort of 'dipped in glitter' look.

Speak soon x
