glitter galore

Hey everyone!
Today I have the last product from BornPrettyStore that I'm going to show you for now. The nail vinyl craze is happening for a while now and I wanted in on it. What I love about nail vinyl manicures is that you can easily create gradient and glitter patterns which don't turn out nice looking with stamps. I decided to try doing a glitter pattern because I never say no to glitter.

First off, I applied a fast drying polish in a deep purple shade and I waited at least 15-20 minutes for it to dry and afterwards I applied a fast drying top coat. These steps are crucial if you don't want your base color to get picked up by the stickiness of the vinyl. Since my nails aren't as long as the vinlys, I cut them in half (except for the thumb) and I stuck them to the back of my hand. The natural oils from your hands will remove some of the stickiness which combined with the waiting and fast drying top coat will definitely not ruin your base.

The next step was of course the glitter. I actually used a textured polish which I appilied to a sponge and began sponging on top of the vinyl. I did so in order to stop excess buildup and bumpy manicure. I added another layer of glitter, this time using a golden holographic polish. The end result was a really gorgeous and sparkly manicure.

Used products:
• Rimmel London Deliciously Dark
• Golden Rose Holiday 58
• Miss Selene 171

Overall, I'm quite impressed by these nail vinyls and how they did their job. However, I must mention that I was disappointed by the fact that you only get 6 of each design, or 12 vinyls total. That means that if you want all ten nails to look the same, you will definitely have to cut them or even reuse some. The problem comes if you actually use glitter, because it might transfer on places you don't want it to.
Nonetheless, I still did enjoy using them and I'm going to get my hands on different designs in the future.
