Welcoming Summer with Neon Glitter Placement Gradient
Today's post is about an experiment. Experiment with bright neon loose glitter. Lovely people from Bundle Monster have sent me a set of glitters and among them were the glitters I'll be using today. Glitter placement can look stunning but sometimes it can be a right pain, especially if you unwisely layer the glitter like I did! I wanted to do a gradient with it but layering glitters made the surface uneven and a bit bump even after applying topcoat.
Let's have a look...
I started with two coats of Barry M Gelly Coconut, a creamy off-white polish. Then I've painted a small part of the nail with top coat and started sticking glitters to it. I repeated the same process and added less and less glitter towards the tip of the nail and most glitter near the cuticle. Lastly, I've sealed the nails with a coat of topcoat. This manicure wasn't a total success and I can still see that bumpy surface in the pictures but we learn from our mistakes, eh? I also regret forgetting to take pictures under UV light, it could have been epic!
The glitter didn't bleed colour so I really appreciated that. The set also offers a nice range of colours in three different shapes - circle, hexagonal and diamond. The glitter set can be purchased at a Bundle Monster website.
Have a lovely day! Lucie x
