Sour Grapes

Sour Grapes has to be my favourite! It’s a purple based glitter with small, holographic hex glitters!

Squeeze Me

Squeeze Me is a tangerine iridescent glitter.

These all applied beautifully in 2 coats, and I cured for 60 seconds in my CND LED Lamp. Remember, glitter gels are slightly more difficult to work with, but the beauty of a gel polish is that you can move the glitter around to get your desired placement before curing.

I had to put one of these on my nails, and as I said Sour Grapes is my favourite! I applied as a glitter fade over a lilac gel polish and I was really pleased how they turned out! ūüíú

Heroes & Villains Collaboration with @NonaPhilippa

Hey guys!

Welcome to my very first Blog post!

NonaPhilippa and I have started our 2016 quarterly collaborations again on our YouTube Channels!

Our theme this quarter is Heroes & Villains. We chose Disney’s Sleeping Beauty and the classic tale of Good vs Evil!

~HERO TUTORIAL~

We decided I would depict¬†Aurora ~¬†Sleeping Beauty¬†herself! Here’s what I came up with!

I really wanted to incorporate the rose thorn bush, as her name was Briar Rose when she was living in the cottage with the good fairies. I also wanted to attempt a decal with the Prince¬†(which turned out better than I thought!) I also incorporated the ‘Once upon a Dream’ phrase and a silhouette of the castle.

I used a gorgeous base of Madam Glam Bubble Gum and Magpie Beauty Two Faced Dust in ‘Iris’ to create ¬†a gorgeous magical sparkly hue. Luckily, I also had the help of the BBF Plate 40 ~ perfect for Sleeping Beauty!
