I'm going to keep it super short today after my massive blab on the last post plus the space bar on my keyboard only types when it wants to. Day six of the challenge calls for a textured mani and I knew exactly what I was going to do as soon as I saw the prompt. I've been wanting to do glitter nails for ages and I had even bought a tube of glitter from the craft store, but for various reasons, I hadn't gotten around to it.
I started with one coat of Sinful Colors in Blue By You, the closest colour I had to the glitter, let it dry and applied a second coat to one finger first but only let this one dry for about 30 seconds. After this time, I pressed my finger onto the fine glitter and brushed off the excess with an old foundation brush. I repeated the process with the rest of the nails.
That's it. Easy as pie. I didn't quite realise at the time of purchase but the name of the colour of the glitter is Holo Royal, so of course I had to bring these little babies out to the sun.
Look at the sparkle.
And the pretty holo glitter.
I must say, even after brushing all the excess glitter, there was still a lot of it that came off during the afternoon that I wore these and mostly onto my hands. You may see some stray glitter on my cuticles and fingers.
A few close ups, just because I can.
I didn't mind the glitter going everywhere because they were so pretty and sparkly!

Till next time,
