Hi everyone. As you may have noticed, I haven’t been posting on the blog as often as before. That is because I am in the middle of moving! My boyfriend found a job in Germany (Frankfurt) and we will be moving there at the end of March. I have been so busy in the past few weeks with finding a place to live, organizing everything, etc. We went to Frankfurt this week to look at several apartments. We chose a few we liked and now waiting or the landlords to confirm that we can move in. I am crossing my fingers! You are probably wondering whether I speak German. The answer is NO! :) I had German in primary school, but all the knowledge vanished by now, so I hope I can refresh it a bit and communicate with people. It’s going to be an adventure for sure. I hope I can keep posting on my blog. It won’t be as often as I would like, but I hope that once we are settled in, I can go back to my “full-time” blogging.
OK, enough of this update. Let’s move on to the mani I want to show you. I was inspired to do another glitter placement using beautiful diamond glitters. I saw this design over at The Nailasaurus blog and decided to do something similar.
The base of this beautiful glitter placement is Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac. I was charmed by this beautiful lilac color and could not leave the store without it. I love Sally Hansen polishes. They go so smooth and you get a good coverage with 1-2 coats.
The glitters that I used for this mani are from Essence Superheros Collection and they are called Fantastic Girl. They are dark pink, holographic, diamond glitters. I like the fact that they are quite small and look good on my not-so-big nails ;) The pieces were not all even and some of them were stuck together, so it was a little bit difficult to work with them, but once you get a hang of it, it goes fast.
I used a clear nail polish and an orange stick to put them on my nails. Just paint your nails with a clear polish, then dip your orange stick in the clear polish to pick up the glitters and put them in place. Glitter placement is a bit time consuming, but if you decide to do only tips of your nails (like me) it’s not too bad ;)
Once I was done, I put a layer of my HK Girl top coat and the mani was all finished! I love how these two colors look together and how shiny the glitters are :)
What do you guys think of my diamond glitter placement? :) Do let me know in the comments below and have a lovely day! Muah :*
