Hello! I wrote last time about how I make up my manicure designs as I go along, well here’s another example! This one though started off with me wanting to use a new purchase, Accessorize Glass Slipper. I get seduced by the cute little Accessorize bottles every time I step in a store (thankfully there isn’t one in my city, or I’d own every polish they make) so when I saw some on sale for 75p each I dived in.
What I used:
- Nails Inc The Serpentine (navy blue creme)
- Accessorize Glass Slipper (shimmery glitter topper)
- MoYou London Sweet Wisteria (lilac stamping polish)
- Pueen 76 stamping plate
- HK Girl Glisten & Glow topcoat
- Liquid latex
- Born Pretty Store Clear stamper
So Accessorize Glass Slipper is a hard one to describe. It’s quite a thick polish, full of colour changing shimmer and various sizes of silver glitters. It may be possible to get full coverage if you use enough coats, but I think it would be extremely thick plus removal would be a nightmare! I opted to use it over a dark base instead. I thought dark blue would look nicer than black, so I started with a single coat of Nails Inc The Serpentine. I added a single coat of Glass Slipper over the top, which totally transformed the plain creme into a magenta-teal shifting shimmer! I found the glitters tended to clump up a bit if I wasn’t careful, and the more I tried to spread them out, the more glitter ended up on my nails! I topped it off with a coat of Glisten & Glow.
By the next day, I’d decided that I didn’t really like the silver glitters over the dark base, so I added some stamping to try and tone them down a bit. I chose a swirly leaf pattern from Pueen 76, and stamped using Sweet Wisteria, which I thought would complement the colour shift nicely. Another coat of HK Girl finished off.
Definitely preferred it once I’d added the stamping!
See you soon,
