Delicate Pink Glitter Nails

Delicate Pink Glitter Nails

I was having a play with some nail varnishes the other day and came up with this delicate pale pink glittery look. I really love it, it’s very demure and pretty, so I thought I would share it. I think it would look perfect worn by a bride on her wedding day, as it’s very subtle and wouldn’t detract from the dress. The base shade of pink that I used was Rose Cache from Chanel, it’s a pale nudey pink with a very slight 2-tone lilac shimmer to it. When you wear it on its own it almost looks like you’re not wearing a colour, just healthy pink nails, and it works perfectly with a white tip for a classic French manicure. I know a lot of people don’t like Chanel nail colours as they’re fairly expensive and a lot of bloggers have reported chipping, but I do have to say that I have a few different Chanel shades and I really like them.

Pink Sparkle Nail Art

Welcome to another nail art post! I created this look using Barry M ‘Magenta Glitter’ Nail Paint and MUA Nail Polish in ‘Natural Days’. I just love Natural Days, it’s such a pretty, pale baby pink, if you want to see what it looks like on its own, have a look at my review here.

After this coat had dried I painted another coat of the glitter nail paint, this time from the base to only about one third of the way up each nail, this way it gives a gentle graded effect to the glitter. I finished with a...

Barry M – Pink Glitter Tip Nail Art

Barry M – Pink Glitter Tip Nail Art

Welcome to another nail art post! I created this look using two of my favourite Barry M nail paints – ‘Lychee’ which is part of the Gelly effects collection and the very sparkly ‘Magenta Glitter’. Lychee is a perfect nude colour to use as a base for nail art, allowing other colours and glitters to stand out over the top of it. If you want to see what Lychee looks like on its own, have a look here. Magenta Glitter is a very intense fuchsia pink colour, that contains mainly fine flecks of glitter but does have a few larger blobs of glitter in too. First I painted 2 thick coats of the Lychee Gelly nail paint over my nails and left to dry. Then I painted a thin coat of Magenta Glitter over the top to about halfway down each nail. After this coat had dried I painted another coat of the glitter nail paint, this time only about one third of the way down each nail, this way it...
