Born Pretty Store 2 of 3: Glitter Chevrons

Press Sample

Today I have part two of this Born Pretty Store three part series. I have loose glitter to share today! I have been seeing a lot of stunning glitter placement manis lately and am so impressed by how stunning they look. I tried my hand at these a while ago here, but I was using really tiny gliltters and it took ages. The Born Pretty Store sent me some larger loose glitter and I attempted to make a chevron design with the different colors. I used a toothpick dipped in top coat to place the glitter onto a wet layer of top coat. The base color I used was Orly Naked Canvas.

I really liked the size of the glitter I received, but I am still not that great at placing the glitters. Now that I have some good sized glitter to work with, I can practice more! I also layered two coats of top coat over this design to make sure there wouldn't be any snags that could rip off the design. I liked this product, there were some in there that weren't cut properly but I noticed that in the other glitter container I had as well. It is probably difficult to guarantee perfectly shaped glitter. I think it is a great deal. If you missed part one of this series, it is linked here. I mentioned that it does take a while to receive items, it took mine about two weeks to arrive, but they offer free shipping worldwide with no minimum purchase, which I always appreciate. If you would like to purchase anything from the Born Pretty Store you can use code: HANDX31 for 10% off! Here are the other parts of the series:
