|(They're not the neatest today! Need to work on that...)|
I used one layer of Barry M Gelly Hi-Shine Nail Paint in "Greenberry" which is actually slightly greener than in the photos. Once it was completely dry, I then cut up some masking tape and placed it at various angles on my nails. I painted another thin layer of the same polish on the exposed areas, then used just a cheap paint brush to place the glitter on top. Once that was dry, I used a layer of Sally Hansen Mega Shine Top Coat to set it (which as you can see in the pic below has started to go a little bubbly as it's nearing its end!). I think the end result is a nice subtle sparkly pattern, which you can make bolder by using different colours of course; the next I'm going to try is a white base with perhaps red glitter (although that's maybe a little too festive-looking for this time of year!).
