galaxy nails


Bored of my plain coral nails I decided to experiment with some of the nail products I got in my goody bag at Company's Fashion Forum last month. I used 17 Holo nail polish, which is meant to give a holographic effect. To be honest it didn't really look anything special to me, but you are meant to use two coats and I just used one. Then I used nail glitter on the top and finished with a top coat.
Now I have never used nail glitter before and the whole thing was a bit of a mare. First struggle was getting the tube open with wet nails (might be worth opening it before you start painting!) So I pulled the top off with my teeth and glitter went everywhere! Then I wasn't too sure how to apply it, at first I just tipped glitter onto the nail but this was far too messy so then I dipped a cotton bud into the bottle and tapped it onto my nails (I think I'll invest in some nail art brushes to apply this in future, you can get them really cheap off ebay!)

What nail colours are you wearing this season? Have you tried the holographic effect polish?
