OPI: Glow Up Already!

Glow up Already! is part of the OPI Burlesque collection for Winter 2010. It is a multi coloured glitter. In some lights it looks a greeny gold and in others a silver. It also has a pink, purple and blue sparkle as it moves in the light.

It was very thick to apply but did give good coverage.

China Glaze: Tinsel and Party Hearty

This is 'Tinsel' by China Glaze. I am not sure how many coats I went with in the end as I lost count. I found it took a few to cover and then a few more to even it out. It was very sheer. I think another time I might use silver under it so I don't need as many coats. It is very pretty and sparkly.

I used China Glaze 'Tinsel' as a base and then painted two coats of China Glaze 'Party Hearty' over the top. I love the effect! As usual it is better in real life. It is very Christmassy.

China Glaze: Emerald Sparkle

I love 'Emerald Sparkle' by China Glaze. It is my favourite green, so far and perfect for this time of year. I am posting two photos to try and show how pretty it is. It is a dark green with lighter green sparkle.

Nubar: Sapphire and Tiara

I painted one coat of Nubar 'Tiara' over the 'Sapphire' thinking it would make them sparkly. I am disappointed with the effect as it muted the blue and only has a slight sparkle under certain light. I would have been better using one of the other glitter top coats, I live and learn. LOL

Nubar: Sapphire

Nubar Sapphire is a wonderful blue with paler blue shimmer flecks.

I used some snowflake stickers from Nailtopia on my ring finger nails. These are white but with a shimmer that doesn't show up in the photo.

This is a quick nail art and I think very pretty.
