So I thought I would jump on the glitter on the nails bandwagon and purchase myself a black nail polish and some Gosh Nail Glitter.

I purposely created a slightly more messy nail tip look - I didn't want it to look "done". Which resulted in the below look. I did a diagonal line across the thumb just to break things up a bit too. I like inconsistency when it comes to nail art.

Below is what I used to create the above look.  I painted my nails black and then applied the top coat where I wanted the glitter to be and rather than dip my nail in the pot as suggested I dabbed the glitter on with the pictured brush. 

This created less mess but also meant that the glitter went on finer rather than creating a band of opaque glitter. I then applied the clear on top as a top coat to secure it all which is why the glitter has spread along all the nail slightly too.  Which I liked.



I wore this look for two days before getting bored with it.  (I usually find that happens when I wear a strong colour/look) It wasn't chipping but was starting to look slightly messy. 

I think that from experience with nail polish etc on false and natural nails - this would probably work better on false nails but for use for a fresh look for a night out this is the perfect product and should be something every girl has.  They have lots of colours to choose from including pink, lavender and silver.  They are sold at Superdrug for £3.99.

One message of warning though - it's an absolute b*Tch to remove, so leave yourself plenty of time as it is definitely not something you want to do last minute before work on a Monday morning...
