Lilac Glitter Bomb

I just can't seem to get enough of glitter manis these days!

Today I have a really pretty lilac mani, sadly it's been raining here, but if I had managed to get a pic in the few minutes of sunshine we had on Wednesday you would have seen how glorious this really is, I even got asked if it was a holo, that's how amazing this looks in sunshine!

First I applied a Rimmel base, then two coats of Lizzie's nameless Love Shine lilac, three coats of the nameless lilac glitter from Claire's and 2true top coat.

I've never liked the Lizzie's lilac, it always felt too babyish as it has a slightly darker purple, pinky shimmer to it, but with things layered over it it actually looks okay! Maybe it won't just sit on a shelf gathering dust anymore!

That said I still felt like I had Barbie nails, although I kinda enjoyed that, they were very pretty.

The glitter was great too, it wasn't grainy on the surface of my nails and the coverage was alright, yeah three coats is a lot for normal polishes but I think it's okay for a glitter right?

Thank you for reading!


  1. I love glitters specially when the coverage is reasonable and we don't need to apply tons of coats :)

  2. I know, I just can't get away from it! I'll paint my nails a plain colour and within at least a day I've put glitter on it. The only thing I hate is getting it off, such a nightmare!! :)

  3. I agree. taking off glitter is a pain. But I can't resist it :0)

  4. I am exactly the same, I just love glitter polishes!! Only sad thing is I hate getting it off! Its such a nightmare. Love the nail polish colour is super cute! I have some Claires polishes I'm yet to try out, accept they are not as nice as this colour. Claires polishes are defo an undiscovered gem!


  5. Oh I know, I have about 9 Claire's glitters, I actually think they are really good quality and quite a bargain for that! :)
