I have some The Conservatorie glitters that have not seen much light - I looked at them as they arrived in late 2010 and stashed them away since they were not usable on the eyes (and I did not have glitter glue). So this weekend I wanted to see what they would look like on my nails.
I took out my black nail polish, Lava Sand glitter and clear top polish and this is what I got as a result (I quite liked it but it's too much effort):
Black nail polish, sprinkled over with massive glitter (looked VERY fashionable (but fragile) in that stage), followed by multiple layers of top coat. Problem was the glitter seemed to drink all the top coat and then the result looked matte :S. I think 4 coats altogether were needed for the glossy finish. Had I known the time it took - I would have just left it there with the glitter layes as the top one :).
On the hands it kind of feels as if there's sandpaper on the nails and it's still rather prone to chipping. Lasted only a day :S Next time I'll try to mix the glitter with the top coat before applying it on the nails - I felt it went on too thickly when I sprinkled it.
