Stargazer Green Glitter Nails…

Green Glitter*: Stargazer
Rimmel High Shine Top Coat

The awesome people at Stargazer kindly sent me a wee care package the other week of some of their newest stock & aside from the eyeliner pen (which is awesome) this green glitter pot stood out to me the most. One because it is sparkly, everyone loves a bit of glitter non? & two, the colour, I love the colour green so much, black aside, it’s probably my favourite.

The obvious thing to do with a glitter pot is probably to use it as eye shadow, which would be fab but I really wanted to be able to get more every day wear out of it so, as you can see, nails quickly sprung to mind.
It’s kind of self explanatory how I did it but basically & coated my nails with clear polish, dunked my fingers into the glitter pot, let the polish dry a little, wiped off the excess glitter from my nails & fingers then added another couple our clear top coats to keep the glitter in place & looking mighty shiny!

Now I know what you are thinking, it’s all well & good that it looks pretty on your nails Hev, but was it a bitch to get off?!?! NO! :) Because of the clear coat that I used, it’s kind of gel like, the glitter was SUPER easy to get off my nails, you know no dunking them in goodness knows how much nail varnish remover & going through a packet of cotton wool pads, no, no, this baby just peeled right off when I wanted it to, leaving no sign of any glitter, hurrah! :)

What do you think? Have you ever tried using glitter as nail varnish?
