I can't believe I haven't blogged this week! I have been so busy with life that I have barely had time to even pay attention to nail polish...I am about to go on vacation, so I'm not sure that's gonna change, but I really hope it does soon! I love the polish and blogging world, and the simple joy the polish can bring to your day. Cheesy, but that's how I feel! :)
So today I am reviewing and showing you a nail art look I did using some loose glitter from Born Pretty. They have a good selection of shapes and colors that come in little jars like the one below. For the look I used them for I hardly used any compared to what's in the container, so these are gonna last me a while!
I used China Glaze Flirty Tankini for the base. I painted one nail at a time and immediately began to stick the glitters around the edges of my nails. I used a pair of tweezers and pushed down on an individual piece of glitter to pick it up. I then carefully placed it in the wet polish. After I finished going around one nail, I topped it off with topcoat and moved on to the next.
This design was not nearly as time consuming or difficult as I thought it would be, especially for doing all 10 nails. It does take longer than, say, stamping a full mani, but nothing too crazy. Once you find your groove, placing the glitters goes pretty quickly.
I loved how this turned out! The glitter frame adds a luxe feeling my nails without being too over the top. So far the staying power of the glitter has been pretty good as well. I definitely want to try this again with more colors soon! Also, you can use code AJ10W21 to get 10% off your purchase at Born Pretty. :)
Have any of you tried a version of the frame mani yet?Pin It
