When KKCenterHK asked me to pick a couple of items to review I saw these little glitters and I had a very specific mani in mind. The problem with my very specific ideas is that they never really translate very well when I try to execute them. :/ Originally I intended on using black as the base color for this but there is no way the brown would have shown up over the black. So I started off with 2 coats of Sinful Colors Snow Me White
Then I put several drops of Milani Dark Coffee in a mini spray bottle with several drops of nail polish thinner. I shook it up and sprayed it focusing on the tips. If I had a larger drop I shook my hands, like I had water on them, giving it a drippy look. *The spray method can be very messy, I went outside to spray so I didn't make a mess in the house. For easier clean up you can use Vaseline around the nail and just wipe clean after you are done spraying, much gentler than using a ton of acetone*
Next I applied a layer of top coat and then using my dotting tool I added the "Sexy Girl Glitters".
I really wish I could get these glitters to lay flat against the nail. I applied 2 coats of NYC Matte Me Crazy on top of it to try and help but it failed. I really like the idea of these special shaped glitters but for someone that has a pronounced curve to their nails, like I do, these just aren't very practical. If you have super flat nails then these would probably work better.
