I framed my nails with a sparkly glitter!

 Thanks for the lovely comments on my previous post and all suggestions you gave me are now on "to do list". :) It's absolutely great to hear what you think about my blog, what would you love to see from me, so it definitely gave me some ideas about my posts. :)

I was seeing manicure like this on Tumblr a couple of times and I was really interested to do it once. I actually did it once with studs but when I wanted them to seal with a TC the color came off and my manicure was ruined. But when genius Deniz from Emerald Sparkle did this manicure, I knew I should try it too. :D This is the manicure I'm still wearing and although I still have some swatches of two gorgeous polishes to show you, I need to show this one first. :i

I got so many compliments on this manicure, which always made my day. <3 It's so easy to make it, well all you need is a little bit of patience. :D First I didn't know what base color to pick but then I remembered Elsa's tweet that she would love to see a black mani with silver glitter. First I wanted to sponge a silver glitter but I really wanted to try this manicure out so I decided for black base and holographic glitter, I hope I won't disappoint you Elsa. :)

I started with a coat of Wet n Wild - Black Créme, best black polish ever. :) I didn't have patience to frame my nails with silver first so I decided to just place hexagonal silver holographic glitter around... I got glitter sample from Viva La Nails ages ago and I can't find them on their web page, but here you can see the glitters they have available at the moment. I'm not sure if they're thin like these I have but some colors really caught my attention. I prefer glitter over rhinestones, because they're thinner and the surface of a nail isn't bumpy as it would be with rhinestones.

I took a toothpick, put a layer of top coat and started placing the glitter around my nails. I was quickly done with my left hand but I have struggled a bit with my right hand, but I managed to place them as neatly as I could and I was very excited to see the lovely result. :)

I like it better in person as on photos. :D My phone definitely see clearer than me, because those empty spots between glitter aren't so obvious and one of the line looks wonky but in person it looks just fine. :D It's so sparkly in person, I tried to show you all the rainbow going on on blurry picture but it's even more sparkly in person. :)

Let me know what do you think about these kinds of manicures. :) I love it this way but once I would love to have perfect framed nails just with nail polish but I think my hand isn't steady enough for perfect lines like that. :)

Thanks for reading!

Xoxo,
Ivana :k
