Glitterati


Recently, there has been a sweeping trend of glitter nails, I too, have jumped back on the bandwagon (Regardless of glitter being a pain in the a!#* to remove !) I recently found this bargain copper glitter varnish from BodyCare for £1.00 , and decided to create an ombre'y glitter nail ! I hope you like the look . Here is how I did it;

 
Prep nails, I've added two clear base coats (To make it a little easier when it comes to removing the glitter polish)
 
Technic nail varnish , £1.00 , Body Care
I then did one full coat using the copper glitter varnish over the full nail.

 
I then added two coats of the glitter to the tips only, which gives the ombre'd glitter effect.. Unfortunately , the camera doesn't really pick up how lovely the copper looks.
 
I will probably be wearing this look for a while, my friends and I really like it ! What do you think?

Monochrome Madness

We're constantly seeing the monochrome trend grace the catwalks year in, year out. With it , yet again, being big this coming season, I thought I'd transfer the look to my nails.

I love this look, being simple yet very effective, you can spot these nails yards away !

Natural Collection nail varnish , £1.99, Boots, Nail Tip Whitener and Sugar Mouse (For a top coat)


This is one of my favourite nail varnish trends, I used Sugar Mouse over the top, which takes the harshness of the white away, leaving a subtle pearlescent shine, although the camera hasn't really picked this up.

However, one issue is , if your nail chips, it is awfully obvious.

What do you all think? Would you try this look?
