Long Lasting Sparkly Nails


I’m not the type of person to spend loads of money on my nails, although I do love to make my nails look presentable. I am partial to a sparkly nail as they look pretty with everything you wear. At the moment I’ve been loving a gold sparkly nail so I’m going to show you what I have been using to get these nails.

The first thing I do is wash my hands with just whatever hand wash I have at the time and I feel like my nail polish lasts longer if I do that first.

Next I use my most loved base coat which is by Rimmel London and it’s a 2 in 1 base coat and top coat which is a bargain. I believe this was between the £5 – £6 mark.


The third thing I do, is apply one coat of a coloured nail polish that matches the colour of the glitter polish that I will be applying on top. So fortunately, the polish and the glitter came as a set. They were from the Barry M Aquarium Collection.


Once i’ve put a layer of the gold polish on, I will add a few coats of the glitter as it can be very sparse on the first coat. Even if it does still look spars after a few coats, it doesn’t matter because the gold colour underneath will blend it all together.


Then finally, I will finish with a final coat of the Rimmel top coat to seal it all in.
