Storm clouds rolling in

Hi everyone~ Spring in Australia means fluctuating temperatures and weather. One day it's warm and sunny, the next it's cloudy and freezing :(. This mani was totally fit for the cloudy weather we had a few days ago. Too cold!

I applied two coats of Rimmel grey matter onto my nails. I then took my OPI Servin' up sparkle to give the mani some glitter tips. I love how the glitter adds that little extra bling to the mani to make it look more interesting <3.

What do you think of this mani? I've gotta run now, class will be on soon!

  23. The glitter was a little pain to remove :P I didn't use the foil  method though so I'm sure it'll be a much smoother removal process if you do use it!

  30. I'm wondering how you get the glitter to look like a fine sprinkle falling on your nails? Every time I try to do this it ends up way to thick. What am I doing wrong??? Help!

  31. I make sure there isn't much glitter on the brush for the first coat :) Starting from the tip of the nail, I lightly dab on the glitter, working my way down towards the middle of the nail (or however far down you want it to be). By starting at the tip of the nail - where you want the most glitter to be anyway! - you ensure that there is a gradation of glitter :)

    Some ladies like to use the sponging technique where they apply some of the polish onto a sponge before dabbing the sponge onto the nail. I feel this wastes the (precious!!) glitter so I prefer to dab directly from the nail polish brush instead.

    Hope this is helpful for you!
