Hot Glitter Mess

Sometimes frankens go bad. In this case, I added glitter that was a little too large in a base that was too opaque, so I got clumping.  The larger the glitter, the harder it is to work with.

I used a dollar store neon pink and added 1/3 clear polish, and then added about 1/3 tsp of glitter to the mix, but the glitter kind of thickened up the mix too much and was hard to brush on. It took 3 coats of topcoat to be even remotely smooth.



Well, ladies, I’m jetting off this afternoon for the USA, so I won’t be posting. I have a couple of things to show you that will be auto-posted but I may not be answering comments for the next week or 10 days. See you soon!


About nevertoomuchglitter

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

  10. I love the way the glitter color and base color sort of “clash” to make a really cool look together. If only this would have been smoother I would call this a total win! But as far as looks I think it is awesome!
