Friday's Fingers: Glitting Teal NOTD

Currently listening to: Incredible by Darius

Good morning girls!

Yesterday I received some mixed reviews about Barry M Teal so today I'm going to show you how I modified it and see what reaction that provokes :-)

For my birthday I was given NYC Lights-Camera-Glitter so I decided to layer it over Teal:
 

 Now, before I was given Lights-Camera-Glitter, I actually thought I had a Miss Sporty dupe of it.  How wrong I was.  Both polishes contain flecks of silver, turquoise and purple glitter but Lights-Camera-Glitter has much bigger chunks of turquoise and purple glitter than Miss Sporty.  The difference is really quite striking (if anyone would like me to do a comparison post, let me know).


 When I took these photos I didn't have access to my usual photo-taking spot so you're seeing my nails in a new light today ;-)


 I told you I wasn't too sure if I liked Teal on its own but I liked it a lot more with the added layer of glitter.  Glitter always makes things better.


To finish, I mattified this manicure using Rimmel Matte Finish topcoat.  I love mattified glitter, it's one of my favourite looks.


What do you think girls?

Bye for now,
Laura

  4. Very pretty. Teal is a nice color, and prettier with glitters.

  5. This is stunning! I love that the glitter has the big chunks in there too and really looks twice as good when its matte xxx
