Glitter Tips


This was a quick idea I had last night. I was in desperate need to re-do my nails, they were so chipped and nasty! I was just going to paint them and leave it at that, but I couldn't just leave it - that was too boring for me! So after painting with another of Primark's UV varnishes (haha), I took some Wilkinson's double sided tape that we got with a Christmas puppet kit! I used this tape because it was a thin role and it seemed like it wouldn't be that sticky as it came with a children's craft kit. I lined them up over each nail tip, like you would do if you were doing a French manicure and just painted away with my Barry M Limited Edition Glitter Nail Paint. I did a couple coats on the tips so the glitter stood out. When removing the tape it did pull some of my nail varnish off, so it probably wasn't the best thing to use! But I was improvising so was good enough for me! I pretty pleased with how it came out, I think it's a bit different.

    1. I picked this up for a pound in Primark before christmas, and a lovely purpley burgundy colour. Not the first place I'd normally look for nail varnish but I really like the colours! Thanks for following poppet! x x

  7. The glitter comes up really well, for some reason my Barry M glitter polish doesn't come up as well.
