'Bling It!' Glitter Gel Nail Art With A Freehand Sapphire Heart.

Allo polish Pals!
How are you all doing today? I hope you had an amazing weekend?
I didn't really get up to much, just taking care of errands and organizing things. Just a typical quiet weekend, really. How about you?

Today's nail art leaves me a little unsure.. I will just let you guys be the judges.
This weeks theme prompt for the weekly challenge over on Tiny Canvas is 'Bling it!' nails. I wasn't quite sure how I wanted to tackle this one as I've done full studded accent nails before and wanted something slightly different.. so I opted gel polish with the intention of getting a very glitzy, built up glitter look.

I'm really sorry to those of you who don't like gel nail art - Maybe we can just pretend there is no gel?! :')

I created this manicure by applying one coat of NYC's peel off base coat and once dry applied two coats of Catrice's 'Johnny Deep' from the new IconNails range. I again allowed this to dry and followed on with a thin coat of BlueSky's gel top coat; This was the sticky type of top coat.

I cured my nails under my UV lamp for a few seconds and used the tacky layer for adhering my glitter and sequins which was literally a mixture of different types of glitter, iridescent shards and sequins I mixed together. I applied my Born Pretty Store gel top coat (the no wipe, non sticky kind) and cured again. Voilà!

Obviously I didn't need the peel off base for the freehand heart nail so I regular polishes here and used acrylic paints to paint it. On top I sealed it in with my Pro-FX top coat.

What do you guys think of my blingy tips? Have you tried blinging nail art before?
