Well I must confess I wasn’t actually going to put this manicure up as the pictures don’t do it justice but I was in town this morning and had four sales staff in different shops comment on it so I thought I might as well share. It’s two coats of Orly’s Lunar Eclipse followed by one of Model’s Own Silver Spangle. Another reason I wasn’t going to put this up is I don’t like the way the Silver Spangle came out. I was hoping for stars on a midnight sky, but I got random splodges of glitter, far more than I wanted, all over. However, the reason it got so many compliments today is the Silver Spangle is so incredibly twinkly, especially under electric lights, which is why sales assistants noticed it, but sadly the finished result couldn’t be captured by my mediocre photgraphic skills. Anyway, here it is as it appears in daylight, just flat silver messy sparkles on blue:
And next here’s a just a poor example of how it looks when light hits it:
And finally a bit of blur to show some of the colours that show up:
Hmm. Well it is very pretty, I’ll have to try harder with the application of Silver Spangle I think. Anyone have any tips for using big glitters?
