A quicky nail post for today’s nail news. I created this super easy to do nail look the other week and thought I’d share. All you need is a taupe basecoat and an ice like glitter topcoat and you’re done! Here’s what I did.
I never really pay attention to the type of colors I’m wearing on my nails. I just pick a combination that tickles my fancy and I go with it. Regardless of the seasons, time of the year or what might be deemed appropriate. If I feel like wearing neon pink today I will. So the other day I was really feeling wearing a taupe. To spice it up a little, I decided to use one of my new Essence top coats in Icy Fairy and I really liked the effect.
- L’Oreal Miracle Repair 7 base coat
- Diamond Cosmetics Taupe Shimmer
- Essence Effect Nail Polish in Icy Fairy
- Sally Hansen InstaDry top coat
I loved how at first glance the topper seems completely silver. But then, when you move your fingers in the light small specks of blue become visible. I also like the added touch with the larger, chunkier glitter pieces in this polish. It was one of those combinations that I just couldn’t stop staring at while it was on my hands. Yet it was so simple to do! And so I deemed it share worthy on the blog.
What is your favorite glitter top coat?
