#NailArtWeeklyProject 5: Glitz & Glam
The fifth and final week of Danni's #NailArtWeeklyProject is themed 'Glitz & Glam'; I had a lot of ideas for this theme but sadly not the time to really do any of them properly, so I ended up going for something of a cop-out in the form of a glittery topcoat. I started with Nail Envy, as always, followed by two coats of 'Plum' from Barry M's Gelly Hi-Shine range. I really love the rich, deep purple shade of 'Plum' and the lovely glossy finish it has! Once this was dry, I added a thick coat of 'Frenzy' by Sinful Colors, which is a gorgeous mix of fuchsia and aqua glitter in a clear base. My nails are quite short at the moment as I've had to cut them for work (sob!) but I think this actually looks pretty good on shorter nails. The photos below are without topcoat, and sadly they really don't do justice to how sparkly the glitter in 'Frenzy' is!
I think 'Frenzy' worked really well with 'Plum', although I'm also looking forward to trying it over lighter shades to really make it pop! What do you think of this week's mani? What would you have chosen for the theme 'Glitz & Glam'?
