I’ve been playing around with glitter placement over the last few weeks, ever since I met the awesome Laura from http://www.polishallthenails.com/ who is the absolute expert when it comes to glitter placement.

I have to say, it’s not nearly as time consuming as I thought and simple designs are a lot easier than I thought too! If you’re at all weary…don’t be. It’s fun, easy and the impact is stunning.

 

Purple and Silver Sparkle

For this look I used some nail polishes from the Mariah Carey for OPI Christmas collection and the Miss Universe Collection by OPI including:

  • OPI “I’m Feeling Sashy” mauve purple
  • OPI ” Baby please come home” Liquid Sand
  • OPI “I snow you love me” glitter formula for the glitter which I removed from the polish and  placed individually on the nail with an orange stick on top of a top coat
  • Top Coat Glisten and Glow HK Girl top coat
  • The micro bead star was a gift from a friend in Japan, but you could put these on individually as well to form a star

Black Matte Meets Gold Glitter

These would be gorgeous New Year’s Eve nails I think! I think these ones are my favourite.

For this look I used:

  • black base Sephora by OPI “What’s in a Tire Jack?”
  • Essie “Matte About You” topcoat
  • loose glitter (Essence Nail Art) applied with an orange stick on top of wet topcoat

  • Silver Nails Inc “South Kensington”
  • Essie “Matte About You” topcoat
  • loose glitter (purchased from Walmart) applied with an orange stick on top of wet topcoat

Next goal? To play with different shapes of glitter (diamonds, square, lines etc).
