Green Sparkles

For Christmas I got some really nice neon coloured nail polishes and hadn't had a chance to use the green one. So after a bit of thought I decided to pair it with glitter.
I started with two coats of BC Co. Shade 16 and then two coats of NYX Carnival just of the ends of the pointer and middle finger. For the other nails I did one coat but made sure the glitter is evenly spread.
Once the glitter had dried I added a coat of the BC Co. again. Only a thin layer so the glitter shows through. It makes the glitter have this matte effect.

When doing this type of technique make sure you pick nail polishes that are quite thin. If it is two thick the glitter wont show through.
