Soft Glitter

Finally, the last of the KBShimmer winter holiday collection on display for your viewing pleasure! Phew, it took me months to get through these. Today we have Toastest with the Mostest. This one took so long because I could not figure out what to do with it!

Toastest with the Mostest is a glitter bomb that does not work well alone, but looks a bit odd over many of the colors that I’ve seen on the internet. If anything, it is because there are too many different colored glitters! We have pink, gold, and silver holographic circles of varying sizes, intended to invoke champagne. It is a lovely glitter mix, but just doesn’t work on a whole nail!

So, I did sort of a side-swept gradient. The results show off the glitter while still keeping the nail relatively simple! To achieve this look, I wiped most of the glitter off the brush, and just swept it over the corner of my nail. I had to push and pull at a few glitters to make sure they didn’t overlap, but it was very easy! Each nail needed only one brush swipe (lots of glitter!) except my thumb, where I used two.

The only glitter that I didn’t get out were the very large holo circles. Honestly, I have no idea what I would have done with one of those, so I consider this lucky! The pink base is what I am using to qualify for the GOT challenge today…it is actually the oldest pink I own!

I am happy with this whole collection, and the glitter bombs are awesome! This one is no exception. It even made a me like a ‘simple’ mani 🙂

  1. I love this, very pretty and still very simple!

  2. ooh ooh ooh! i love this! i wish i was wearing this right now!

  3. Ooh, I love what you’ve done here – so pretty. I hemmed and hawed over buying that glitter because of all the swatches I had seen, it looked too…samey? Layering it over white really brings out the rainbow colours in the holo glitter. Nice!

    • thanks! and yah, I was on the fence about keeping it, the swatches I saw made it look too busy. verdict: just don’t cover the whole nail! (and use it over a lighter color)
