15 Day Nail Challenge – Day 6 Glitter

Today is day 6 of Makeup Savvy’s 15 Day Nail Challenge! So far I have taken part in days 3, 4 and 5 so please have a look if you haven’t already. I was totally unsure about what to do for today. I love glitter but no ideas were coming to me so I just sat down with some polishes and this is the result!

It started out as a grey to black gradient but the sponges that I used were not reacting very well with the polish meaning that bits of sponge had stuck to my nails in places. I didn’t want to start over though so I added a coat of a dense silver glitter from No. 7 that I got in a mini set around Christmas. Although it is still a bit lumpy, the glitter and a couple of coats of top coat helped to even thinks out a little bit. It looks much smoother in real life. 




I could have just used an opaque glitter and be done with it but I am trying to challenge myself to create more nail art rather than just painting my nails with simple colours. I have to admit that after the disaster of this gradient I am not looking forward to the gradient day!


Thank you for reading!
