How do you make a fast-and-easy manicure take a long time? Add hex glitters. This came out pretty awesome (if I do say so myself, and if you like bling), but took much longer than I thought it would!
I’m fairly certain that I started with Rosebower as my base, and painted one coat of Visions of Love over the top of my nail, then 1-2 coats of All Nighter. Unfortunately, All Nighter usually takes 3+ coats on its own, so I need to layer it over a darker color. After my layers of red were dry, I trimmed some gold water decals to fit the line formed by the reds, and then added gold glequins at the divider.
In my head, this mani would take 30 minutes (mostly waiting for things to dry). I conveniently forgot how much of a headache glequins are! Picking up one at a time and then trying to clean up all the spilled gold glitter…It took closer to 1.5 hours. Whoops!
~ Light red: A England – Rosebower
~ Dark red glitter: Pure Ice – All Nighter
~ Dark red creme: OPI – Visions of Love
Still, red + gold glitter = happiness! It is one of my favorite combinations to work with. Maybe next time I’ll skip the glitter though! Hope you enjoyed 🙂
