So last weeks Fashion Beauty Panel challenge was how to wear glitter. I took photos for the challenge but didn't end up having time to submit the post, but I thought I would still share my photos here. I don't usually wear glitter in my makeup but I do like glitter nails. I especially like to add just a touch of glitter. For this nail look I started with a base colour. The colour I used was Revlon Gel Envy in Checkmate. When my nails were dry I used tape to create a triangle shape near the nail bed then I applied the Revlon Gel Envy Diamond Top Coat in the triangle shape. I then took a small paint brush, dipped it into some gold glitter then dabbed the glitter onto the top coat so that the glitter would stick. I removed the tape when the nail polish started to dry, then added a layer of topcoat over top the entire nail to seal the glitter in place. And that's it!

How do you wear glitter?

  3. Love this manicure! I rarely wear glitter... ever. Mainly because I'm lazy and don't feel like dealing with the mess lol.

  4. So pretty! I love the gold on nude look. A bit glitzy, yet still super classy.
