12 Days of Christmas: Glitter

Hi everyone!

Today’s theme in the 12 Days of Christmas challenge is glitter. I decided to go full-on glitter with this and pulled out the loose glitters I have for crafts.

I didn’t even use a base colour for this – the glitter gave full coverage with no problem.

I spent ages on cleanup just because the glitter wanted to stay all over my fingers.

I decided to try adding a top coat as well:Painted Fingertips | Loose glitter bling nailsThe glitter was very thirsty so even with top coat, it still felt rough. I am sure this would help it last longer though. These reminded me of a patchwork version of some glitter-covered Christmas decorations we used to hang on the tree every year.
