Pink Glitter "Glequins"

Another product from the Born Pretty Store is up today. This is a similar loose glitter available in the same type of container. Slightly smaller and diamond shaped. I wanted to attempt a complete pattern across the entire nail. I started at the cuticle end of my nail and my lines got more crooked as I grew increasingly impatient. But just imagine how great it would have looked if I'd gone slower?! :)

I started out with 2 coats of China Glaze Secondhand Silk. It goes perfectly with the warm gold of these glitter pieces. Once that had a moment to dry I applied top coat in small sections and placed each glitter piece individually. Once the entire nail was covered, another coat of topcoat. I took nail clippers to the pieces that hung off the edge.

These glitter pieces can be found here for $2.38. The description reads "purple," but both here and there they look PINK.

Don't forget my coupon code if you place an order!
