Blue and Silver Glitter Tips

Tonight I tried something a little different. I was feeling a little uninspired with my stamping plates so instead I turned to my new french manicure sticker guides. I didnt like the idea of using traditional french manicure neutral colours so instead I reached for stunning blue and sparkly silver.

I started with OPI Ogre the Top Blue. It was a little on the thin side and I experienced a little cuticle flooding which I didnt try to clean up too much as my cuticles cant take too much acetone at the moment :-(.

I used the french manicure guides to section of my tips and then I painted one thin coat of Barry M Silver to just the tips. I originally thought I didnt need Silver in my collection as it looked like Silver Foil but I was wrong. Silver is sparkly and glitter like where as Silver Foil is a solid colour with a smooth finish.

To jazz this up a little I added some silver hex sequins to each nail with a dotting tool and a slow drying top coat.

I wasnt too fussed on these nails and even considered taking this manicure off in my lunch break! At least I ticked some things off of my untrieds list and I will certainly attempt a similar look again - maybe black and gold.
