Glitter and More Glitter

Hi everyone! Today I have a super sparkly mani from a little while back to show you. This is another which got a little bit stuck in the vault of pictures so that's why my nails look a little longer. 

This manicure started out with me wanting to wear Kiko 447 Carmine Red from the Satin Nail Lacquer box set and sort of kept going from there...

I began with 2 coats of Carmine Red which is a stunning bright pink creme with silvery microshimmer throughout. The shimmer adds depth and makes this a little bit different to your typical fuchsia creme. Formula and application were great. 

I decided to add glitter to my ring and little finger nails and chose Red Dog Design's Kick A$$ because it just matches the Kiko perfectly, being a bright pink holographic glitter. I used 2 thin coats. Application was great and this is so packed full of glitter. I'm looking forward to pairing it with a lot of different shades.

I wore these two together for a day and then decided to add even more glitter in the form of Lumina Lacquer Mickey's Moonlit Masquerade. Tatiana at Lumina Lacquer makes fabulous chunky glitter polishes and this one is fab. It has a mix of blue, pink, purple and silver glitters in different shapes. There are hexes, circles, crescent moons and Mickey shapes! I used one coat and dabbed some of the larger pieces to distribute them quite evenly over my nails. This would look great over a wide range of colours.
