BOOM! Glitter explosion


this is 2 coats of Revlon Hazy, followed by 2 coats of Sinful Colors Aruba Rhythm. i used my new stripe polish to create the lines, then applied a blob of clear polish and added the larger magenta holographic hex glitters to the base of the lines, then swept more clear polish sort of following the lines and gently sprinkled on the smaller holographic magenta hex glitter.

I tried to place the large hex glitter on my nail individually, but it was taking too long, so I added a blob of clear to the base and scooped it up and sprinkled it on my nail. I used a fluffy brush to pick up the smaller glitters and tapped and waved it over the wet clear polish. Glitter is fun to use for mani's but very messy.

This is one of my favorite easy to do looks. It did eat up alot of top coat - next time I won't use so much glitter. If it is a holographic glitter a little goes a long way.  On my right hand I did not add the shimmery Sinful Colors polish and did not add a s much of the larger holo hex glitter, I liked it better then with the shimmery polish and if I repeat this look I will be sure to use a plain creme base for my lines & glitter.


stuff  I used; Revlon Hazy, Magenta stripe polish & two sizes of  Magenta holographic Hexagon glitter

drew lines, blobbed clear polish and added large glitter to base of lines

 added clear polish along lines and sprinkled on smaller glitter
