Check out mah nails mannnn, just call me PRINCESS SPARKLE YO!
I did this really quick sparkle nail DIY the other day and I’m pretty impressed with myself – despite the thick coating of nail varnish and glitter, I didn’t get the urge to pick it off! I just can’t help myself when I know I can pick up a corner of the varnish and peel it off my nails, but this was so pretty I just couldn’t bring myself to start picking. But I’m sure if I did it would have been a bit harder than usual anyway as that Tanya Burr Nail Varnish
is a right swine to pick off! (Which is a good thing by the way, you know, normal people like their varnish to last as long as possible)…. Combining Tanya Burr nail polish in shade ‘Little Duck’ with a W7 glitter polish in Pink Debris, which you can get from B&M for around £1.49 (but you can find W7 products at places like Fragrance Direct
too), and a touch of lilac glitter from NV Colour
you can create the perrrrfect princess sparkle nails in around half an hour, and it seems to stay on your nails for at least a week chip free!
The most time consuming part of the process is waiting for the final coat of glitter polish to dry, which you use as a top coat once you’ve applied to glitter. The NV Colour Glitter Pot has the unexpected addition of a handy little brush inside the lid which makes it even easier to brush it directly on to your nails. Simply pop two coats of Tanya Burr Little Duck on as your base, wait until the second coat is a little tacky, then brush on the lilac glitter on to the ends of your nails. Don’t worry if this doesn’t look too neat and tidy as this point because when you apply the W7 polish as a glittery top coat, it diffuses any messiness anyway. Because the Pink Debris glitter polish has a nice range of small, medium and large sparkly bits in, it manages to create a nice little glitter ombre effect when applied over the fine lilac glitter.
And there you go! A pretty nail varnish idea even I can do at home and not pick off!
