I was stuck in a bit of a rut with my nails. If glitter wasn’t added then I wasn’t interested. It’s just so easy to paint my nails one colour, throw on some glitter and boom, looks like you’ve made a lot of effort when really you haven’t. But it was time to actually do something a little different…
I started by applying my Bluesky Gel Nail Polish in Sea & Sky (£6.50, Bluesky) which is a gorgeous gel polish. It’s a bright cobalt blue which colour changes to a light baby toned blue when warm.
After applying one coat, I then applied sticky crystals in light blue and pink to my middle nail and orange and yellow to my thumb. I applied then from the centre in a line up and continued to apply the Sea & Sky polish between cures being careful to only go around the gems and not directly over them.
If I did go onto them, I’d simply wipe off any excess with a clean finger or cotton bud.
This ensures that the gems are contained and kept in place. Fingers crossed they don’t fall off and I don’t catch them whilst going about my day to day activities.
It’s been two days so far and so far so good.
Overall, I’m really glad I stayed away from glitter on my nails for once – as it’s always my safe place.
