Don’t get me wrong. I have nothing against rectangular glitter, but it does annoy me a bit. My nails are far too curve for this kind of glitter to adhere nicely to my nails, so it always ends up bumpy as hell!
But every so often, I decide to jump back into the ship and try it out.
Suffice to say, this design lasted a whole 10 min before I decided it was time to peel it off.
So here’s the thing. I was playing around with striping tape, and forgot that I was using a peel off base coat for a second when pulling off the tape. Thus, leaving me with a semi-peeled design. But no frets! Holo glitter fixes everything! It’s barely noticeable after the glitter is on.
(Yes, the bottom photo has a filter lol)
Very rarely am I excited to brag about having done french tips on my nails, but I’m happy on several things in this photo.
There is a technique called “Dry Brushing” on which you take a nail polish brush, clean it as much as you can and then use whatever polish is left on the brush to create random strokes on your nails. This creates a “fabric” effect on your nails, and an effect that will never be able to be reproduced exactly as you did it that time. It’s unique!
