Hello Lovely Ladies,
The set of 12 glitters retails for $6.45 (remember, with discount code MARTAK31 you get an additional 10% off of your entire purchase). The Born Pretty Store also offers FREE international shipping
The net weight of glitter is 84g… basically, you are set for life with this set There are SO many in here!
While you get 12 various shades, you do not get a choice of color… but with a dozen little containers, you are bound to get a lovely selection
I like how this glitter is all packaged in individual clear tubs. The containers are great for storage, prevent spillage, and help with usage (read on to learn more).
Though the Born Pretty Store describes these as “Nail Art Mini Round Glitter Sheets” you should note two things:
1.) These are in fact hexagonal in shape (not perfect spheres)
2.) If you are used to glitter polish, these are ‘bigger’ than the average glitter chunk in your nail polish. I would say 3mm in diameter for the metallic finish glitter and 2mm for the translucent multi-sheen glitter (you get a mixture of both finishes in this set).
To apply, all you need is:
* this glitter
* a topcoat (I used Seche Vite)
* dotting tool/toothpick (for picking up and placing the glitter)
Let your base color dry and pour some of the glitter into the lid. Having only some of the glitter in the lid helps with picking up the individual glitters with your dotting tool and in turn with speed of application.
Apply topcoat over the surface of the nail where you would like to place the glitter. Dip your dotting tool/toothpick into some topcoat and pick up one glitter at a time, placing it where desired. When the whole nail is done, cover the entire surface of the nail with one generous coat of topcoat.
There are a number of ways you could wear this glitter. I have three ideas for you Two in today’s post (and one more coming tomorrow).
Place your glitter onto your nail to create a pattern (as you would with gems). For this look I used two coats of Color Club Earthy Angel and one coat of Barbra Colour Alike Czekoladka. Using the gold glitter I placed three on each nail.
Because of the larger size of this glitter, they reflect light INCREDIBLY well! This is quite a striking look… really fun.
Alternately, you could use the glitter to accent a stamped manicure:
Here I used two coat of OPI Suzy Says Feng Shui stamped with Mash-50 and Sally Hansen Whirlwind White. I used the translucent white/pink glitter as well as the silver glitter:
The silver glitter looks like I have mirrors on my nails So fun and playful.
Overall, I am sooo happy with these. They are flatter than gemstones, so if you are a picker (or don’t like texture on your nails) this is a better choice.
I will leave a word of caution in saying that my nail surfaces are quite large, so these glitters (though big) are very wearable. If you have smaller nails, you might want to seek out smaller glitter to better suit your nail surface.
