Lose Your Lingerie

Sometimes the urge to create a really girly mani just takes hold and I can't help myself, out come the pinks and glitters! Today I grabbed Rimmel - Lose Your Lingerie* from the Rita Ora range (what an amazing polish name!) and Models Own - Bora Bora my current fave glitter. 

I started the mani with a pastel pink base on all but my ring finger - I had to use three coats, for some reason this polish is a bit patchy even though it's fairly thick. It might just be my bottle as I don't have this problem with the rest of the range. I then added a full nail of Bora Bora on my ring finger, again this is three coats for full coverage. On the thumb I went for a glitter fade, although it's quite tricky with this polish as it's such a fine glitter. I should have used a make up sponge instead of just the polish brush. Finally I finished it off with dots of glitter on my middle and little fingers. A quick and simple mix and match to let my girly side out for a little bit!

I used a matte topcoat as the glare from taking photos inside stresses me out! This mani would be just as cute with a glossy finish if you don't enjoy the matte glitter look as much as I do.

Glitter dots are a good alternative to studs if you don't have the patience for the fiddly-ness. They look great and last really well - perfect for party season!
