NOTD - All That Glitters!

glitter nails

A few days ago I decided to organise my nail polishes, because it's something I like to do as I never feel like they are organised in the correct way. So I organised all my glitter nail polishes into a pretty Cartier storage box and then because they all looked so pretty I picked out a few to paint my nails with the next day. 

While sorting out all my nail polishes (lots are going to be in a blog sale soon..  I'm talking 30+!) I realised that I have stopped wearing glitter nail polish and I miss it. So I am going to hunt down Sally Hansen's Kwik Off nail polish remover on Ebay or Amazon as it is the only remover that removes glitter nail polish fast, and I am going to start using all my beautiful glitter nail polishes again. 


Anyway, so for my nails I decided to start off with two mini OPI shades for the base.. but actually I didn't even need them as the two glitter polishes I used were quite packed glitter so it didn't make much of a difference.  You can see the swatches of the two shades above which are from the OPI  Designer Series. Very pretty indeed!

Then for the two amazing glitter nail polishes I used Color Club 'Gingerbread' which was from a past holiday collection and China Glaze 'Tinsel Town' from the Let It Snow Holiday 2011 collection (that collection was soooo nice). So quite a festive manicure... though I only knew that the Colour Club nail polish was called Gingerbread after googling it as they don't have shade names on them!

I just needed two coats of each and then I was done! 


I really do love this combination and really think it's just a bit more interesting than using one glitter.

To finish I used my new favourite top coat - NYC In a New York Color Minute Quick Dry Top Coat which is around £2.50 ish. This dries so fast and makes any nail polish look so glossy. I love applying this over nail art. 

On another note I am thinking of doing another 30 Days of Nails challenge were I post a Nail of the Day every day or nail art. I really enjoyed it last time but my nails did suffer a bit afterwards so I'm not 100% sure!

Fee xo.
