Silver glitter tips

Hello my lovelies! It's Saturday and many of you will go out tonight. For a night out you need a bit of glitter. This is actually a mani I wore a few days ago when we went out to celebrate the end of exams. I usually don't like french manicures, but I think the glitter makes it totally different. I chose to do the tips over a clear pinkish base, but this can also be done over a colored base. 


To do this manicure I've used the loose glitter from my previous ebay haul. I love this glitter because it's so so sparkly. Another advantage is that it's easier to remove than regular glitter polish. But if you are afraid of glitter getting everywhere, you should not try this. It's very fine and very hard to manage and I ended up using the vacuum cleaner to remove it from my worktable. The good thing however is that soap and water usually make the excess glitter from your hands disappear.


I was afraid that the yellowness of my nails would show trough, but the pinkish base concealed it pretty well. I actually find this manicure very delicate and a great way to wear glitter without it being over the top. 


Next time I do this I will use a colored base however because french manicures are just not me. I did enjoy wearing this very much, though!

  1. Mihaela I love this, it's so pretty without being too girly, & until I read thought it was your natural nail with just clear polish on!

    1. Thank you love! I wish my nails were so pink! But it's just a clear treatment that has a little pink hue.
