sparkles flying!

10 Aug

When it comes to glitter vs clean-up, I tend to tip to the “can’t be bothered to spend ages soaking it off” side. I do have some great looking glitters in my collection, but so far they’ve only met my toes.
That is until now, because I found out that one of those peel-off basecoats does wonders when you don’t have much time for a soak! There are some downsides to the basecoat, but for glitters this is my new friend!
So, no longer limited by my own laziness, I went all out on an aqua-esk nail extravaganza. It was great, it was lovely, it was deep! 😛
But then, dilemma struck!
While out in the home town with the hubby, I went into one of those shops you pass by but never go in.
I should go in more often, because I found a wonderful polish I just HAD to try.
So I peeled off the blue’s, and went all disco with the new polish. It’s wonderful, dries quickly, covers well.
The only problem was the texture. It’s like sanding paper, so it took me 3 layers of topcoat (which I really should stock up more!) before I had the surface smooth enough to do a simple nail art. Once again, my thoughts seemed to be dictated by “flow-ers!” chanting… why so narrow minded?!
Close enough, I chose the French Lily after some twirl trial and errors. I only did one thumb as a feature, and left the others in full disco modus. Every time I look at my nails I can hear the boogie!
