[nails] Day 17 - Glitter

Howdy folks, today I'm bringing you Day 17 of the 31 Day Challenge - and I managed to do it without a two-week break in between like last time, huzzah! Glitter is a pretty wide challenge with lots of freedom to do what you want, and since I have a pretty big glitter collection it took me a while to decide what to do. Against all my natural instincts, I actually settled on the idea of a subtle glitter look using a flakie glitter, and here's what I got:

I didn't have the best light to photograph these, but I was so happy with how they turned out! I think flakie glitters look great over light colours since they catch the light so well, and layered over white here they looked like snow ^_^

For this look I used three coats of No 7 Stay Perfect Nail Colour in Snowflake, topped with two coats of Nubar 2010. I kept it on for a fair while since I liked it so much :)

What do you guys think?

Much love from both myself and the Nail Platypus as always, 

Katy xo
