Glitter Glitter on my Nails! Glitter Bomb!

 Happy Friendship Day to you allllll!!!
I have got to know a lot of people due to blogging and I am glad to know such nice ppl!
I dont want to get into talking names, coz this post may never end :p
But you all know who you are!! And u've made my life more fun!!
(This incl all tweeps, email spammers, FB followers and comment writers!)
So here's wishing you all a very HAPPY Friendship Day!!!

On my blog today is my first glitter bomb! And a big one at that.
I've always stayed away from glitter due to the painful task of removing them and killing your cuticles in the process (yeah I mean the foil claw method). I am clearly not a fan of that. But after seeing this new frenzy around indie glitter polishes and the bea-u-tiful pics across blogs, I couldnt resist.
Now Indie polishes are real hard to get hold off, so I got around to buying "Cosmic" from Jordana.

Yes! It know it is A LOT of glitter. I wanted to see how it looks/feels etc.

Base: Sandy-Matt Blue polish
Glitter polish: Jordana Cosmic 2 coats

I brought Jordana cosmic from BeautyJoint.
One bottle of 6ml costs around $2.99

Cosmic is packed with micro blue hex glitter and large chunky silver, blue and green hex

After a couple of days I got bored with my flashy nails and tried to add some interest by adding dots of various colours. It ended up looking even more boring. I think.... U?

Psssst: I discovered a way to remove glitter polish without killing your cuticles. Will post that soon.
Wait for it. :D Bwahahahahah!!!!

  3. woww this looks cool.. but yeah removing the glitter is a pain :( Kej I have a doubt.. I tried this nyx enchanted forest on top of a green np.. i wasnt able to layer those bigger green glitters (not sure what to call it) properly.. when I tried adding 3 coats it became too thick and clumsy.. because of this the layers looked uneven on the nails.. I see u have done a fab job in layering.. is thr a technique that I am missing :( me a novice.. ur thoughts.. (sorry for the lengthy comment)

    1. Hey Rekha, I m no expert on glitter but there r 2 ways u can try. One is apply it like any other polish in smooth strokes from nail base to tip. Allow each coat to dry completely.
      The 2nd is: dab. Dab on the glitter polish on the dried base coat..again lettin each coat dry.
      The thing is: if your glitter polish is jam packed with glitter it will easily pick up lots of glitter and u wont need to layer much. but if it is not jam packed it will ply on sparse glitter jus like how u see in the bottle.
      To smoothen out the top layer of my nails I have used 2 layers of seche vite quick dry top coat . It helps make ur nails feel un-gritty! (if thats a word).
      No problemo abt the long comment..pls feeel free to ask here nytime :)

    2. Mani is pretty! Definitely.
      scary when I think of removal!

      Remember the LA color glitter I put on accent finger. The glitter came off on its own. Did not peel, just came off. Now its sitting pretty on my table. :P
      I wish glitter removal would always be that easy! *dream* :D

    1. oh dear! Thats a long time..Did u chk at ur local post office? I say go thr badger them and make a scene. They might open a drawer and give it u.
      Chances are ur package has been inappropriately used by the fashion-conscious postmen(or their family)! >:O
      Did u take insurance on ur package? Send a mail to beauty joint and tell them u havent recd it over 2 months now..chances are u cud get a refund.

  12. You could have taken our names, you know....we wouldn't hold it against you.

    btw, I just pluck them out and then use the remover, not like anybody asked me but then they never really do ^_^
