Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? I hope you had a sweet weekend! Did you get upto anything fun?
Saturday was awesome, I had a really nice girly day out with my sister-in-law (I call her that even though Mr Bravo and I are not married) I am so glad we are close and get a long so well, it was nice spending time with her away from home! :) I've started the countdown now.. Friday night I will be flying home!
Today I have another product from The Born Pretty Store to share with you. This is 'Shinning Nail Glitter Powder Gorgeous Nail Sequins Manicure Nail ArtDecoration' – Now I am sure that title could have been shortened! I am wearing shade #378.
When I saw this glitter in the store I was instantly interested. Loose glitter isn't something I consider myself to be well experienced with but I'm always game to try new things! The colour is of the glitter is mostly purple with very fine glitters and also larger different coloured pieces. I would say it is not too similar to what I thought I had selected in the store which looked like a soft muted mauve/lilac glitter where as this is clearly a much more deeper purple shade. I still like it though.

The store suggests that you should wear this glitter by applying a clear top coat and adding the glitter on top which is exactly what I did because I wanted some serious bling. I would say it was pretty easy to do but of course slightly on the messy side. I also refused to use either of my fave top coats on top because I did not want glitter contaminating it so I used an older less important top coat to seal all the glitter in. For my base for the glitter I used Rimmel's 'Midnight Rendezvous'.
I quite like the look of the glitter but I was expecting more... twinkle. Would I recommend this to a friend? If she is incredibly partial to glitter than of course, I think there are much more interesting ways you could wear these glitters than the way I have. An example? Stencil/vinyl designs could look really cool paired with these.
What do you think of this glitter manicure? Do you like loose glitters like this?
Thank you for visiting!
Have a beautiful day, my friends! I'll catch you again on Wednesday for some more nail art fun!
