Mini Post: Glitter Tips...

Wednesday, October 26, 2011

So Im currently on route to London town for the Cosmo Blog Awards tonight..
Im so excited to meet some of my favourite bloggers! Some I met at fashion week some I have only seen graced across their blogs. Ive decided to keep a live diary of photos of my day from 9am in the hairdressers to well the probably slightly blurry end to the night. Ill be uploading all my photos to instagram so be sure to follow me on twitter and instagram under themagpiegirl to see all the photos. :)

I wanted to share a few photos of how I did my nails for the night...
the dress code is 'awards ceremony' so glam is what I took I from that!

I applied about 5 layers of the gold Barry M polish which is meant to give a foil affect..which I guess it did. Then I applied a layer of clear to 2 nails per hand and poured over loose glitter.
Tapped of the excess and applied a thick layer of clear polish over all the nails and an extra coat on the glitter nails.
My Dress is a bodycon gold sequin number so I thought the matt and glitter nails would look well against it. Ill be sure to upload all the photos on my blog when I get back this weekend. :) x

  32. Great Idea! I now remember that I have some loose glitter, and that I never used it on my eyes, might aswell try it on my nails hehe.
