Whew that’s a long title! I haven’t really done glitter nails for a while because I dread removing them, but I was going through my collection and rediscovered this gorg Deborah Lippmann Lady Sings the Blue and 5 minutes later it’s all over my nails.
Lady Sings the Blue is a lovely royal blue polish with silver hex glitters and tiny micro-glitters. To avoid putting on 3 layers of this stuff, I used a blue based polish – Essie Bobbing for Baubles. It’s darker than in the pictures when painted, almost like a dark navy with a tinge of grey, and it makes a great base for the glitter. Both polishes went on beautifully, I used one coat of each, and no top coat. As you can see it could really use one since it’s not super glossy. I personally don’t mind it too much, but if you are adamant about your tips being glossy, I highly suggest a top coat.
Do you avoid putting on glitter polishes because you can’t stand removing them? Do you have any tips/tricks on removing them less painlessly? Do share! :)
I hope you are having a lovely Sunday!
