#5minutenailart: Grey-t To Use Glitter

Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: Glitter

Hi everyone!

I finally did it! I finally came up with a post title based on one of the nail polishes I used! I see other bloggers having these catchy titles all the time and I usually just can’t ๐Ÿ™‚

I have another #5minutenailart to share with you today and this is one of my favourites I’ve done so far! If you’d like to know more about what this series is about, you can check out my first #5minutenailart post. The basic idea is that I’ll start with a base of a single-colour manicure, then have just 5 minutes to turn it into nail art.ย Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: Glitter

The base colour I started with was one of my favourite work-friendly shades, Essenceย Grey-t To Be Here. This lovely grey was the perfect base for some glitter! I added a quick glitter gradient using Essenceย Glorious Aquarius.ย Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: Glitter

I finished it off with a couple of studs I got ages ago from Bundle Monster.ย Painted Fingertips | 5 minute nail art: Glitter

I love this look and I love that it’s so quick to achieve! You can also do this with many combinations of base colour and glitter, but right now I’m loving the grey and blue! What do you think?

    oooh I don’t think I have seen his Essence polish up here yet. Those studs are nice too, kinda like records

      Both of the polishes I used are a couple of years old already, so it’s possible they’re either gone or sitting on the back of the shelves somewhere ๐Ÿ™‚

    I need some glitters on my nails, too! But they are so weak atm that I just can’t risk a peel-off base ๐Ÿ™

      Oh no! I didn’t use a peel-off, but I suppose that might be even worse :-/

    The studs look very futuristic and interesting and the layering came out perfect!
