I have so many pots of glequins (chunky pieces of glitter) in my nail art helmer that I feel bad that I don’t use them enough.
True, they are a little time consuming…..but the effect they bring is so pretty, it makes it completely worth it.
So today, I have for you a lilac glequin manicure! LOOK AT IT TWINKLE!
I started by painting my nails with two coats of Angelica Bluebell from their Soft Satin Collection. I picked up this polish a few weeks ago from the Primark on Oxford Street in London for only £2.50 which is a total bargain for such a pretty shade with an almost-matte effect.
I waited until that had dried, and then focusing on one nail at a time, I painted the nail with a clear topcoat (not quick drying!) and quickly positioned all of the glequins on the nail using a toothpick dipped in a bit of clear polish. It’s actually quite quick when you get the hang of it!
This was such a beautiful manicure, I wish I had been able to keep it on for longer. It really did sparkle!
