Black with Sandy Sugar Glitter

I was recently sent this sandy glitter by Born Pretty store,

this particular colour is a mix of neon pink, orange and yellow circular tiny dots – Sandy Glitter Powder # 40133 Y515,

also available in five other different mixes:

but of course you could also mix them together to make your own bespoke mix. It was very easy to apply – for this look I applied Colour Alike ‘Kind of Black’ all over the nail, when that was completely dry I applied a coat of Gelish ‘Top it off’, cured and then took a fluffy brush, gently dipped it in the pot & dabbed the loose glitter around the cuticle into the tacky layer. When I was happy with the distribution, I then added a coat of no wipe top coat to seal the glitter in and add a shine.

Watch this space for further experiments using this range in the coming weeks.

Colour Alike’s multichrome stamping nail polish ‘Lagoon’

I was so excited to get my hands on Colour Alikes ‘Lagoon’ from the Universe Collection. I have a number of other multi chromes but seeing photos of this I was convinced this was better than the brands I already have and I was not wrong. I don’t know if it’s because it is a stamping polish but the consistency seems so much more pigmented and it is just stunning. I liked it both with and without top coat.

For this mani I I decided to use this polish as the base and stamped with MoYou Londons ‘Black Knight’. I love how it turned out. Have you tried this polish?
