Christmas Glitterbomb

I feel like it's been ages since I posted when in reality it's only been 5 days. I was feeling kind of uninspired (and also having camera issues, which luckily turned out to be as simple as the wrong setting) so while I was posting some new manis on IG, I just wasn't loving them enough to write a whole post on!

I am back in the swing of things with the holiday themed glitter bomb. A few weekends ago I got a pretty big haul which included about half of the china glaze holiday collection between my purchases and an early birthday gift! 

 Products used
Deborah Lippmann Hannah (green base)
China Glaze Pine-ing for Glitter
Barry M Mustard (gold base)
China Glaze De-light
Mundo de Unas Silver
HK Girl Top Coat
MoYou London Festive 06

I'm glad I took this pics ASAP because when I curled my hair later, the heat resistant glove scratched a lot of the stamping off since I hadn't yet top coated. Lesson learned! I had smudge issues last time I top coated the MDU too early so was trying to prevent that... oopsies!! 

I am not looking forward to taking this off, I forgot my elmer's base coat.

Glitter- do you love it or hate it?

  1. I love glitter but it's a pain to take off! If I forget glue base I use gauze pads to help but it's still a pain!! I love this mani!! Love all the designs together!!!

    1. this time, i soaked 1/4 of a pad in acetone and wrapped it over the nail with aluminum foil. i left for about 8 mins and most of it came right off. still time consuming but less elbow grease!
