Ultimate Glitter

20 Jul

I’ve been looking for the ultimate Glitter nail polish for ages. One that would make nails look completely glittered up and not look like bits of glitter are scattered with white nail spaces visible. When I was in River Island the cashier had bright orange glitter nails, I asked about them and she said they were gel ones. I hate gel ones, they feel so heavy and weigh down my fingertips. As I was browsing River Island online, I added Glitter NYX Salon Nail Polish to basket on impulse and it happened to be ‘the one’. It’s a bronze colour, exactly what it looks like but doesn’t seem to have a name.

With just two coats of NYX Glitter Polish, it sprinkled and sparkled a very glittery and smooth finish without even needing a top coat like usual glitter nail polish due to the rough texture. This has absolutely no rough or uneven texture, absolutely smooth with each stroke.

I used Elf Polish ‘Innocent‘ as a base for this and Barry M’s 3 in spa 1 Base Coat Top Coat and Nail Hardener all in one as the top coat.

Wearing Elf’s Innocent (the little finger was a little experiment of what one single coat of the NYX Glitter Polish would look). I think this is a glam look that would take you from the end of summer throughout Autumn/Winter 2012 adding a bit of sparkle to the dull days to come.

Feeling Mellow GO YELLOW

I had never thought to try out yellow nail paint of all colours. I simply never thought it would look good on me. season has been all about change and trying out new looks for me; I’ve been daring myself a lot. From dressing up, and looking at the most – what I would have called – “outrageous” outfits, I have learnt a lot about what I love about this seasons picks and about myself and my own image in terms of fashion.

It was when I was looking for a colour for the middle of my daisies in my Daisy Nail Art Tutorial when I thought, ‘hang on, I could use this as just a plain nail polish for my whole nail’ and that’s when the magic took effect! It looks amazing and I got compliments. I think it was just that stand-outishness of it that got people’s attention.

Since I have too many favourite nail paints, I tried to narrow it down to 5, but even that didn’t work so I kept it to an odd number of 6.

Collection 2000: from left, Fruit Salad, Lemon Soda

I’m not a big fan of Collection 2000 cosmetics but it happened when I was looking for a very light pastel yellow for my Daisy Nails tutorial, I finally found the perfect yellow shade, and then it led to me buying the Fruit Salad one too, it’s like a lighter shade of the BarryM Pink Flamingo.
