So I have been hearing the term 'Glequins' for a couple of months now, it is the large hex glitters that are placed individually on the nail to create patterns and designs:) And the lucky duck that I am, I got a chance to review some from the Born Pretty Store:) this is the set I got and you can get yours here.
|Glequins 12 color choices for $5.35|
Now I don't know about you but I love the look these give, and you don't have to be able to paint a straight line:) The first mani I used the 'Glequins' on was something I had seen done before. A honeycomb pattern and nail outline. I used Essie No More Film, a rich purple/blue creme with the light green 'Glequins'. Application was super easy, while my polish was still tacky, I applied the 'Glequins' with the slightly damp pointed end of a orange stick. After 2 coats of gelous and a coat of SV, it was super smooth:)
The next mani I tried my hand at started with a base of Chirality Apollonia, (probably the prettiest purple polish I own). I first did a stripe of silver striping tape down the side of my nail, then lined 'Glequins' down the outside of the stripe. 2 coats of gelous and 2 coats of SV(b/c of the striping tape) and ta-da!!!! How fabulous is this mani!!!!
