Sparkly Tips and Stamping

I recently seen a pix of a funky french tipped glitter kinda mani here and really liked it so thought I would give it a try. I didn't want to copy the mani 100% so decided to use silver and then added stamping. Here's what I came up with.

Started with two coats of Orly Cashmere Cardigan.

Put a thin layer of Sally Hansen Celeb City on the tips (like I was french tipping them). Right below the line of Celeb City, I added Orly Tiara. On top of this, added OPI Servin' Up Sparkle.

Then stamped with Konad special polish in Royal Purple using XL E.

Lastly, added a few pieces of loose glitter, Glam and Glitz, Magic Potion 146 which is holographic hex glitter, in the centres of the flowers as well as here and there on the tips. Lastly, topped with a coat of SV.

While I didn't capture the look of the mani that I had seen posted, it was good practise and I'm sure I'll be trying something like this again at some point as I think the mani in the post is so cool!

Thanks for looking!
