Mattened Glitter Nails

Thursday, November 22, 2012


Pinterest can get sooo addictive!
I had seen a mani on pinterest with matt glitter nails..but I couldnt figure out what polishes were used.
You can see the pin here and my pin board here



I attempted to do it with what I had. I knew I wanted duo-chromy glitter.
I painted the black base with Sally Hansen 
Made glitter gradient with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Fuschia.
KC Holo Fuschia glows from yellow-green to pink-red. I've tried to capture the glitter from both ends of the spectrum. See how it starts from yellow and is amber-red at the tips.

How to do a glitter gradient? I get this search term a lot..so here's how:
For a glitter gradient: I added a single coat of KC all over the nail. Allow a few mins to dry.
Next dabbed some KC at halfway down the nail. Again allow a few mins to dry.
Now just dab again using the glitter polish at the tips.

I added the Inglot Matt top coat after a day as I liked the glistening nails. However I like the matt version better.





It looked so much pretty in real! like twinkling lights. 
You have to matt-en some glitter to see what I mean. It looks absolutely gorgeous!! 

Have you tried to matt-en glitter?
