Continuing the sparkle theme

This little palette of glitter pots was an ebay bargain, slightly more than the cost of a first class stamp. I’m experimenting cautiously after viewing a few videos on YouTube but particularly like mixing a few specks of glitter into a Striplac colour to give it oomph.

These nails are Alessandro Striplac Rouge Noir mixed with the deep pink glitter (top right in case) and I love the result.  Wasn’t too sure after the first coat which looked like a relative of those sequinned boob tubes from the 80s!  But it was tempered with a second coat of the naked gel for an intense stained glass feel.  Result!
