Putting on the Glitz!

Hey everyone!  I guess I'm on a bit of a glitter kick lately!  So tonight I wanted something that would really make my tips stand out!!


I started with one coat of China Glaze First Mate, my absolute favorite navy blue creme!


Next, I applied two coats of Deborah Lippmann's Across the Universe!


I love everything about this polish!  A navy blue jelly, loaded with micro blue glitter & light blue and green hex glitters!  Yes please!!!!


Next, I sponged on Funky Fingers Flashing Lights on the tips for a gradient glitter look!


Flashing Lights is a really fun polish, packed with silver and green micro glitter.


I finished with one coat of Cult Nails Wicked Fast.


This is a really flashy & fun look for a night out!  Plus, it takes minimal time and effort!  I love the way it turned out, and I hope you do as well!  

Happy Painting!!!

Colors: China Glaze First Mate, Deborah Lippmann Across the Universe, Funky Fingers Flashing Lights

  24. This look is stunning and made me want to follow your posts!
    I've had a look at your nail tricks tab but didn't find an answer to how you sponge on a colour/glitter. Also how long do you leave each coat to dry before moving on to the next step?
