Here is two coats of Zoya Crystal a steely blue shimmer polish with mixed golden glitter. On my accent nail I used Barry M Foil Effects Gold and then applied blue "Glequins" to my nail by hand.
"Glequins" are actually larger hex glitter somewhere between glitter and a sequins I bought mine from ebay for about £4 for a selection of different coloured pots. I also here that you can get them from bornpretty.com After applying my base colour of Gold Foil I added a layer of clear top coat (not a fast drying one) and then used my dotting tool to pick up a glequin and position it on the nail. After I covered the whole nail I added a coat of Seche Vite.
Surprisingly application of these glequins didn't take very long. The only thing that annoys me slightly is that they don't have the best wear time. I painted my nails in the evening and could only get good photos the next day when it was light. By this time the glequins were already starting to curl. However this manicure looked really professional and I would love to wear this for a night out!
Here is a close up of Crustal, notice the gold glitter. This polish is incredibly sassy and pretty.
What do you think about glequins? Love them or hate them?
