A random purchase from Superdrug got me all creative yesterday; No , not with my makeup, not yet anyway, but with my nails.
The Shellac came off after 18 days (impressive, hey) and I was in desperate need of a drastic change of scenery, coral for that long can bore anyone.
So, like a magpie I spotted the sparkliest thing I could find, which happened to be on the shelves of the Gosh section.
I've no idea if these are new but I've never seen these teeny, tiny pots of shininess before.
Out of the ten shades available I chose classic gold and grey moonstone.
I don't usually wear glitter polish that often as it's hard to apply evenly and famously even harder to get off but the simplicity of these shouted out to me.
Paint and put in a pot - voila!
The 'look' I came up with is so simple and easy but absolutely beautiful, I literally haven't been able to stop staring at my nails all day, it's as though the galaxy has fallen at my fingertips.
All you need:
- A black nail polish, I used NYC Expert Last in City Blackout
- A nail glitter pot by Gosh
- A clear nail polish, I used one by Nailene
- A good top coat, I used First and Last by Chinaglaze
It looks so much harder than it is, honestly, its pip squeezy.
I painted two layers of the black polish (when dried) then applied the clear polish along the tip as if doing a french manicure then I poured some glitter into the lid of the pot and tipped over my nail immediately.
I then gently blew off the excess and when dry applied a top coat. See, simples!
I can't say enough how much I love these, I prefer the look of the loose glitter so much more than any sparkly polishes I've tried and they allow you to be so much more creative.
The pots are £3.99 each and a must have for any magpies like me!
Will you be sprinkling your nails with stardust?
