Challenge Week 11: Glitter Nails (Attempt 1)

11 March 2013

Ugh - I have totally lost my nailart mojo this past week so I apologise for the lack of posts.  I attempted a gradient 3 times before giving up - it looked horrific.

I wanted to get my mojo back so I thought I'd attempt a beautiful looking manicure (on google).  Unfortunately my attempt was bad.

I used Lac Attack's Hogwarts glitter - about 3 coats to get full coverage.  I then freehanded triangles at the base of the nail and covered the rest of the nail with Barry M Lychee.  The Lychee was too thick on top of the already thick glitter layers and the end result just looked lumpy!

In more positive news, however, I used PVA as a base for the first time and was really impressed with the results.

I apologise for the crappy quality of the picture - when I create really bad mani's, I always resort to no clean up and using my iPhone instead of my camera!


  1. I think this looks fab! (I looooove this glitter)
    Maybe next time you should start with the lychee, then tape off the triangles then do the glitter. Tape is a right faff though!
    Also I want to see a gradientttt. You inspired me to buy greenberry, so I want to try a gradient with greenberry + dorien grey :-D

    1. Yeah I wanted to use masking tape because my nail art tape is too fine but I don't have any! :(

      Greenberry and Dorian grey will look amazing!! I'll try another one this week, maybe for my interview Friday! xx

  2. It looks just great! The Lac Attack glitter is a very pretty colour, good for spring as well. Just that glitter polish alone would itself be awesome. I'm enjoying looking at all your manis in your other posts.
