I secretly love obnoxious glitter. There’s something about the act of plonking down some fun shaped glitter on top of a mani that feels really special. Are 65% of these harts going to fall off in the next 30 minutes while I go about the process of getting ready for bed? Oh absolutely. But maybe that’s why it feels so indulgent. These pokey hearts are for me (and you, since I photographed them) and I don’t give a damn if they last until tomorrow. Except for star glitter that gets caught on my hair. That’s a special case.
Today I have a heart-filled Valentine’s day look to show off. I started off with a base of Doctor Lacquer “Betelgeuse,” which should have been a tricolor pink thermal. The bottle I got recently is stuck in the medium tone, which suits this manicure just fine. There’s a review of “Betelgeuse” headed for the blog one of these days, when I finish editing photos.
Over “Betelgeuse” I added a quick stamped accent using Bundle Monster BM-XL09 and their white stamping polish. Then I top coated with Love, Angeling “Topped With Love” and slapped some assorted white and iridescent pink heart glitter on top and I was good to go!
What do you think? What’s your stance on bigger shaped glitter? What’s the coolest and/or least traditional glitter you’ve seen?
