Adventures in Glitter

Hey folks, here is a video with me trying on glitter. It’s not quite a tutorial because I this was my first time before but it went pretty well so hopefully you can still pick up some tips from it. Not sure what happened at the end. I remembered filming an ending but can’t find the video so I made it work.

Any suggestions for future Adventures in Glitter videos or questions? Please leave me a comment. Happy Shopping!

Mani Monday – Julep Avni & Clio glitter gradient

I paint my nails all the time and hardly ever talk about it on my blog. So here’s a quick post about my current mani. I just received my August Julep box last week and all the colours I got were gorgeous. Rich with some shimmer and shifting colours but not too overt. Rich jewel tones, which are some of my favourite colours.

I decided to go with the royal purple colour, called Avni, even though it’s still summer and I really should be cherishing all the pastels and bright colours that will soon be relegated to the back of my nail polish box. Two coats got me a fantastic base and then I added Julep Clio as a glitter gradient. (You may have noticed, I’m kind of a nut for gradients.)

The first two pics are taken near a window and the third is using indoor lighting. Apologies for the blurriness of the third, the pictures just looked more blue near the window and I wanted to capture the purple shift.
