To celebrate having 5 days off work from tomorrow, I decided to make my nails really bright and glittery this evening!
I've had my third and final purchase from Nail Lacquer UK ready to test out. Turquoise Is Not Dead is an absolutely stunning glitter, absolutely packed with sparkles! As well as all the turquoise pieces, there's dashes of lots of other colours - I especially love the black and the red that are mixed in.
I thought that I Will Rainbow On You
was the most beautiful glitter I own, but this one has to join it at
the top spot. It's just so....glittery! And the colour combo in the glitter is perfect. And I love the charms round the bottle, as I said before. Lovefest for Nail Lacquer! <3
As a base, I decided to use a turquoise colour. I was going to try it over black, but wanted to try something different this time as I'd swatched IWROY over black and didn't want to be repetitive! I saw another blogger who had used teal underneath TIND, which looked fab. I eventually settled on Guava by Barry M as a base (two coats) and then two coats of Turquoise is Not Dead on all but one finger of each hand.
For an accent nail, I decided to add some hand-placed glitter, sticking to the colour-scheme I used turquoise, green and blue. These are from Born Pretty! It's all topcoated with two coats of Sally Hansen's Insta-Dri.
I'm soooo annoyed because I just couldn't capture the true colour of
these in any of the pics here. The pics make my nails look way bluer
than they actually are. Both Guava and Turquoise Is Not Dead are like a
bright, rich, greeny turquoise, where as in these pics they look blue!
Arghhh. I love how they look in real life though! <3
