Hello! I hope you are having a fantastic start to this brand new year!
This is the nail design that I was going to be wearing at new year but because I was ill, I ended up not going anywhere other than my sofa and feeling sorry for myself. Boooo!
But these nails are so pretty I had to share them with you all! 🙂 So sparkly!
Annoyingly, after only a couple of days of getting better from my last horrible cold, I seem to be coming down with another one D:
The polishes I used for this very sparkly look are Maxxed Out from CrowsToes and Beauty Never fails from A England!
If you’re interested, you can find my swatch of Beauty Never Fails (along with my other lovely A England polishes) Here
I decided on using Beauty Never fails rather than a black cream because of the beautiful greenish gold shimmer running through it, I think it really complements the magnificent sparkles of Maxxed Out.
Maxxed Out is quite possibly the sparkliest nail polish I own! It’s one of the lovely collection of polishes I picked up from a blog de-stash from the lovely Debbie over at The Crumpet!
Look at all the holographic glitters! Lots of varying sized hex in different shades of gold, gold glitter and a smattering of quite long bar glitters.
With this super sparkly glitter bomb I was expecting application to be a nightmare but I actually really easy to apply, all the glitters behaved I didn’t have to fish for any of the larger ones, and applied they all laid flat against my nails, the only bits that I moved around where some of the bar glitters.
The first coat of glitter I used a sponge just to add a layer of glitter like a messy french tip, after applying the second coat, with the brush I realised that I really didn’t need to have done the sponge coat at all!
I added one coat of Seche Vite to smooth it out and add a glassy finish, then very carefully filed away the overhanging glitter (some how I forget to file my thumb, I’m going to blame the germs).
I’m not usually a fan of gold nail polish, but I really do like both of these! 😀
