OPI’s Best Ever – Glitter Nail Polish

I am often asked what I consider to be the best glitter polish…! My answer is always simple…they are all much of the same….. because lets face it glitter is glitter isn’t it?! I now stand corrected since using OPI’s ‘Desperately Seeking Sequins’ polish…. if you want a good quality glittery, sparkly, shiny, glossy, silvery, sequinned polish then this bottle is definitely worth a buy & try!

Tips when using your glitter polish….

  • Shake your bottle of polish really well before use
  • You can heat your polish up, by rolling the bottle in the palms of your hands
  • Turn the bottle upside down before use – this moves the heavier glitter/sequins from the bottom of the bottle
  • Press the glitter polish onto the nail – do not brush the polish across the nail bed, as this drags the glitter and ultimately undoes all your glittery work!

Happy glittering …!

Autumn has arrived..!

OPI ‘Sleigh Parking only’ (Left) and ‘Black Cherry Chutney’

Autumn is officially here and I used this excuse to recently purchase these two ‘deep purple’ OPI shades from my local beauty supplier. Both shades are ideal for the Autumn/Winter season and OPI never fails to deliver a long lasting glossy polish for your nails. ‘Sleigh Parking Only’ (pictured above; left) is a more matt aubergine/deep plum shade and this is perfect if you have shorter nails like me. ‘Black Cherry Chutney’ has a deep purple shimmery tone to it with an almost gold two-tone effect.  Be aware that applying more than two coats with either shades can create a dark almost black shade and you can lose the deep purple shade if ‘over-applied’.

A little bit of sparkle…!

With the Christmas period only around the corner, I thought I would practice some of my sparkly ideas for this festive season that is fast approaching…! Nude pastels are all the rage at the moment and I wanted to use these shades to really set the glitter off! To create this look I used NSI’s “Purely Pink Masque’ acrylic powder to build up the acrylic tip and once set I used Essie’s ‘Muchi Muchi’ (No 17) shade as the base coat. For the sparkly bit I brushed on OPI’s ‘Desperately Seeking Sequins’ across the tips of the nails and set this in place with a gel effect top coat. Of course this design can be created using all manner of colours of base coats and glitters!
