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.
