Glitter Placement: Cubes in Space

Hi everyone!

I decided it was time for another glitter placement manicure and I was inspired by a look I saw ages ago on Polish All the Nails. She used diamond-shaped glitters to create 3D cubes and I loved the concept!

I started with a base of Essence Jacob’s Protection. Once it was dry, I used top coat on one nail at a time and applied the glitters.

That and I just need more practice! Painted Fingertips | Glitter cubes in space inspired by Polish All the NailsWith the base polish, it looked to me like these cubes were floating in space. Aren’t they cool? What do you think?Painted Fingertips | Glitter cubes in space inspired by Polish All the Nails

    This is a really great recreation! I love the 3D effect you get when placing the glitters this way.

    Wow!! I’m always so impressed by glitter placement manis. This looks perfect even if the glequins weren’t all exactly diamond shaped! What a great overall look 🙂

      Thanks! I wished I could have placed them a little better but I still love the effect 🙂

    This is incredible, words cannot describe how in love with this. So creative too. I can’t imagine the glitter placement process but it definitely paid off.

      Thanks! It wasn’t as bad as a full-nail glitter placement look but it did take a while!
