Here's a manicure that I would normally be hesitant to try: glitter over nail art. Usually, I'll spend so much time on nail art that I can't even imagine putting something over it. However, I gave it a shot this time and think it was a success! The key is to choose matching color palettes between your glitter and your art.
Using a small nail art brush, I painted vertical stripes beginning in the middle of my nails and working outward towards the edges. Lolli photographed a bit pale here -- it's really a nice soft bubblegum shade. The other colors look accurate to my eye.
After snapping photos of just the stripes alone, I added a coat of Formula X Thunder over the top. It has a great mix of pastel glitters that really complemented the palette of the stripes. I love the way it came out.
Which way do you prefer it: with the glitter or without?
