A Pop of Sparkle

I’ve been seeing a lot of sparkle and glitter popping up recently and I decided to get in on the action with a Morgan Taylor glitter polish, Sweetest Thing.  Since I wasn’t brave enough to do all my nails (and i really don’t think I’d be taken very seriously if I rocked up at work with a full set of glitter nails), I mixed it up with a gorgeous creme pink, Make Me Blush to keep things a little more subtle and stuck to one party nail on each hand.  I really loved this combination and they definitely got me in the mood for our weekend away with friends!  

Sweetest Thing: This is a really pretty pinky silver glitter polish which is completely opaque as two coats or looks really lovely as top coat over your manicure for a more subtle sparkle.  As I hadn’t used a glitter polish before I wasn’t sure what to expect but I was very pleasantly surprised at how easy it was to apply – and how many actual glitter flakes there are in the polish!  I popped a top coat over just to smooth it out as it did feel a bit rough to touch – the picture is two coats with a top coat.

 

 

Make Me Blush:  This is a gorgeous bubble gum pink creme polish.  It’s definitely a shade I’ll be wearing a lot this summer as it will look amazing with a bit of a tan but it works on any skin tone.  I used three coats of this colour just to make sure there weren’t any gaps as it was a bit streaky with just two.  

Morgan Taylor is by far one of my favourite nail polish brands as the quality and range of colours is fantastic.  They don’t chip easily and are definitely a longer lasting polish – you wont be disappointed!

I picked up both of these colours from Dischem for R120.00 each.  

Happy Mani-Monday and have fabulous week!
