I started off with one coat of China Glaze 'One Track Mind', this is a one coat application. I love this rich dark blue. I also applied a quick drying top coat, to speed up the drying time.
When the polish was dry I applied a star vinyl from nailvinyls.com. I then applied a gold polish to my stars. I then sprinkled loose gold glitter over my gold polish while it was still wet with the nail vinyl still in place. I pressed the glitter slightly, then tapped off the excess, and then carefully removed the vinyl. I recommend using a polish the same color as your glitter in case any of the glitter falls off.
I used the same process (apply gold polish and sprinkle loose glitter) with hand painted half moon shape on my other fingers. I've heard this referred to as a floating french.
I did a little cleanup by using a soft brush to brush the loose glitter slightly to make sure it was all stuck. I then applied another thick top coat to seal in all the glitter.
There you have a slightly different Christmas song inspired manicure, that isn't red and green for a change for the 2nd day of Christmas Nail Polish Queens' Challenge. I hope you liked this glittery nail art design. Christmas is a few days away and I have a few more challenges to finish up so stay tuned. Thanks for stopping by, see you soon.
