Even though Glitter was the only prompt that I had an idea for before the challenge even began, today's design still isn't as glitter packed as I'd originally planned because I kept changing my mind about the specifics! I ended up with one glitter covered nail and a few sprinkles here and there so I think it can still pass right?
As I mentioned in my Day 15 post, I'm working my way through a selection of Hex nail charms and second on my list is the Unicorn! ($1.75 at hexnailjewelry.com HERE). I wanted to do some nails that were ethereal, mystical and enchanting to match the charm so I knew it would have to include holographic glitter and pastels which is why I saved it for Day 17. I'm so in love with this nail art and it's made me realise that I definitely need more holographic glitters.
The creme colours are China Glaze Pink-ie Promise and Barry M Prickly Pear. The glitter is H+M Jo Is In The House. To get full coverage on my index finger, I used a base coat of Barry M Prickly Pear and then sponged on the glitter. For the nails with glitter on, I used a base coat of PVA Glue to make for easy, peel off removal.
I topped everything off with two coats of No7 Stay Perfect Top Coat and applied the nail charm using a dot of nail glue.
