Indigo Nails has just released two new glitter powders: Pixel Effect Emerald and Pixel Effect Snow White. You may remember my review of the beautiful Pixel Effect Cinderella, which was the first one that was released from this range. In this post I am going to focus mainly on the Pixel Effect Emerald, but I do have a quick comparison of all the Pixel Effect glitters for you.
In the video tutorial I applied the Pixel Effect Emerald over a neutral base Miami Nude from the Miami 2017 collection. I applied the glitter with a small flat brush straight onto the cured color. This beautiful iridescent glitter shifts from light green to blue. It will look different on every color, so I encourage you to experiment with your base color. The beautiful shift shows best in dim lights or in a shade, but it’s very sparkly in a sunlight.
Make sure you secure the glitters with a layer of top coat. I like using Dry Top Coat Supershine. I painted a simple Aztec design with the white Sugar Effect and brush Master Nail Art 003. I really like using this gel for nail art, because it’s very pigmented, but not overly thick. It’s easy to apply and you can make your lines precise with it.
Let’s take a look at all of the Pixel Effect powders that have been released so far. For the comparison purpose I applied all of the glitter powder over Strawberry Milk, which is a neutral shade of pink.
Looking at all three Pixel Effect powders, you can tell right away that the most chunky one is Cinderella. The glitter pieces are definitely the biggest, which makes it hard to apply them completely smoothly. Cinderella shifts from gold to blue, while Emerald shifts from green to blue. Snow White is not an iridescent glitter, rather a silver gold reflective glitter.
What do you guys think of all the Pixel Effect glitter powders? Which one is your favorite? Let me know in the comments.
My favorite is definitely Pixel Effect Emerald. I just love this beautiful shift and the particles are small enough for a smooth finish. You can find all of the powders by Indigo HERE.
