Manic(ure) Monday: Essence Nail Art Kit


As promised last week I tried the new Essence nail art kit today. I decided to try one of the more easy glitters together with a nice purple nail polish. Here is the result:






After painting my nails I applied a layer of clear base coat on the nail I wanted to apply the glitter to.



Then I made the glitter trickle on my nail.


And then fixed the glitter with another layer of clear top coat.


(I knew it would be worth keeping those little Lush jars.)



What I used:
Essence Vintage District nail art decoration kit 02 "Designer for a day"
Douglas Oktoberfest nail polish


The glitter I used stays on my nails very well, simply add a layer of clear top coat and you're set! I'll have to check how the other nail decorations work, which one would you like to see on my nails next?
