Nail Art // Side French Circle Glitter Placement Nails

by - Monday, August 07, 2017

Today's look was the end result of me playing around with some of the new BPS products I had ordered. I always love polishes with circle glitter so when I saw that I could just buy some straight-up circles of glitter to use in my own nail art I jumped on it!

I have four different sets of colourful circles now, and for my first mani playing around with them I decided to do these side french glitter placement nails. At least, I think that's what they're called? When you do the french tip curve but along the side of the nail instead of the bottom? If you have a different name for it, let me know in the comments! :)

This mani was super simple and quick to do - I started with a base of my go-to white (Ceramic Glaze Pure) and then laid down a layer of regular (non quick-drying) top coat and placed my glitter with a plastic cuticle pusher. 

The glitter I used was from this option on BPS - on sale for 99c. Pick 'em up if you want 'em! It has a mix of pink, blue and gold foil holo in a bunch of different sizes all mixed together.

Mannnn I love these nails! One coat of top coat smoothed them down enough that they weren't really catching on anything (which is always a concern for me when large or shaped glitter is involved) and the holo foil that the glitter is made of made a whole rainbow of colour flash across my nails when I moved them. :)

Do you play around with loose or large glitter options much? Does this look like something you would try? Let me know!

Thanks for visiting! xx
