Today is a public holiday so if you’re not on leave yet you should at least be off today. It’s also beautiful weather here in Durban. I hope you’ve had a good week so far.
It’s time for another NailLinkup post. This weeks prompt was chosen by B from Because I can. You can check out all the prompts on the poster below. Remember, the dates are just a guideline. You can also find more info about NAILLINKUP and every months prompts here.
So for today’s “Let it sparkle” it seemed obvious to me that I was going to use glitter. And probably a lot of it. Let me show you what I did.
On my ring finger I started with 2 coats of Nubar – Heavy gold glitter. On the rest of my nails I started with 2 coats of China Glaze – Seeing red. I left that all to dry for a bit. I then used Nubar – Heavy gold glitter to do a gradient of sorts on the red starting at the tips of my nails. Once that had dried a little bit I whipped out my favourite Christmas glitter – Sinful Colors – Holiday rebel – and added some of that on top of all the gold. I just wanted to add the little bit of red and green sparkle to the sparkle. I then topcoated and that was that.
I also have a swatch for you
China Glaze – Seeing red
This is 2 coats with no topcoat. I used 2 coats but seriously, this is basically a one coater. I did use this on top of black in the #31DC2015 at some point and I will be using it in Tuesday Stamping soon too. Prepare to be impressed. The formula and opacity on this is amazing! It’s a red creme so no shimmer or anything but it is really a beautiful red. Definitely a favourite for me.
What do you think? I am certain it will be sparkly enough. In the sun this was a little blinding. I was worried it wouldn’t be Christmassy enough but once I wore it for a while it definitely started to fe3el a bit more Christmassy. It could just be because I am not feeling very Christmassy in general. Anyway, I can’t wait to see what everyone else does for this prompt. You can check them out by using the InLinkz thingum below.
