Product Review: Silver Nail Art Glitter

Hey guys, I'm doing another review today for Born Pretty Store! If you haven't checked Born Pretty out before, they have some great products in their Nail Art section, as well as other, non-nail-art products.
Today I'm reviewing some Silver Nail Art Glitter (#4). I had the most difficult time deciding on a design to do with this glitter since I don't use glitter all that often. I finally settled on a floral design with a glitter accent.


The glitter comes in a 1 piece set and you have an option of 4 different sizes of glitter. I'm using the smallest glitter out of the four.



For the design, I started off with a teal base and then used a dotting tool to make large white flowers and a smaller dotting tool to make the red centers. These are the products I used for the design:

To apply the glitter, I put a layer of top coat on my nail and then dipped it into the little pot. It coated the nail well, and stays in place even without a top coat. I'm sure there's probably an easier way, but I found the glitter application to be kind of messy (not that it was much of a surprise considering it's glitter and that's always a mess). It got all over my fingers and I spent a lot of time trying to get it off (and preferably back into the pot). It did come off relatively easily though, when I gently scraped it off.
One plus of having the pieces of glitter so small though is that it's easy to get a clean line at the base of your nail.


I also used the glitter in the center of the flowers which proved to be a lot harder than having the entire nail covered. Since the glitter is so small it's too hard to pick the pieces up and place them individually, but it's also difficult to take multiple pieces of glitter out of the pot and place them nicely.
For this reason I would probably recommend this glitter for larger areas instead of in small little designs.


With all that being said, I do love the way the glitter turned out; so sparkly! It's great for a glitter-encrusted accent nail or, if you're feeling up to it, an entire glitter manicure. This glitter sells for $3.89 individually with free worldwide shipping (as is the same for BPS's other products).
Don't forget, you can get 10% off at Born Pretty Store using the coupon code FHX31.

I hope you enjoyed reading!
