Grey, Pink, Black and Blue

Morning dolls! I am sooooooo close to being done my exams! I handed in my final paper for one of my classes yesterday and I just have one exam on Saturday left! I'm not going to lie this exam period has been extremely mentally exhausting. Most often my exam period spans over 3 weeks so I have lots of time to relax in-between studying. This time though it all happened in 2 weeks along with having to write that pesky paper and mark exams and papers. I can't wait to get home and sit by my pool with a drink!

Anyway I did these nails about a week or so ago, I wanted to play around some more with loose glitter and this is what I came up with!

I started off with 2 coats of Barielle U-Concrete Me on my thumb, index and ring nails. I used 2 coats of Nailtini Grenadine on my middle and pinky nails. From there I just went with the flow. I wanted to do a variation on the fishtail nail on my thumb using Grenadine and black loose glitter. On my index I did a V-Gap with Grenadine and black glitter. My middle nail is two coats of Model's Own Disco Mix which is micro pink and blue square glitter. I adore this polish. It's really a stunner! My ring nail is purple loose glitter up the middle and pink loose glitter along the sides. I'm really dissapoointed that the purple glitter smeared when I added topcoat, but from afar you couldn't notice ;) Finally I did a frame on my pinky alternating purple and black loose glitter.

Playing with loose glitter is fun! These are from Michael's I had a coupon for 50% off one item then 40% off your whole purchase, and magically they could be used together! So I got 12 cylinders of loose glitter for a steal. I will for sure be trying to incorporate these into more nail art in the future. :)

I was wearing these when I went to see my esthetician and she died over the loose glitter. She asked if I placed them all by hand and she looked at me with the straightest face and was like, "You're crazy." I might be because these did take awhile, but it was super fun to do!

What do you think of these loose glitter nails? Is this something you would spend some time on or do you like to stick to easier forms of nail art?

Hope you're all having a fab Friday! I'll be tucked away in a library somewhere studying away for my last one!

Thanks SO MUCH for stopping by! <3

  4. I love that Grenadine colour :) And I love the fishtail you did on your thumb :) I don't know if I would try loose glitter, I like to change my polish often so it wouldn't last long anyways :( I love using rhinestones, though I have only used them a couple times.
