Digit-al Dozen, Bling - Day 3

This mani is probably more sparkly than blingy but I didn't want to do days and days of rhinestones which is really all my uncreative mind can think of when I think of bling, so thought I would mix it up a bit with some loose glitter.  Here's what I came up with.

Started with a base of two coats of Sation Board Girl Blue, two coats with topcoat.

Stamped using white Konad special polish using Apipila P.04.

The image was a little finicky (or my stamping was off; not sure which!) so filled in a few spots with a brush and polish.

Decided to use some sparkly loose glitter to bling it up a little.  All I could think of when I was using this was I hope I don't cough or sneeze while the lid is off!

I'm not well versed on how to use this so add I did was put a little clear topcoat on a brush and applied it then dipped my fingertips into the pot.  I then blew on it to get rid of the loose glitter and then followed up with one of the fan brushes to get any loose particles off the stamped image.  It seemed to work well enough!

This pix is a little blurry but can see the holo aka bling a little better.

Topped with SV but in the process, created a glittery mess!  I guess not all the glitter was stuck onto the clear and it went all over the place when I top coated it.  I guess next time, I'll have to fan the whole nail to get rid of all the loose to prevent this.  It's not that noticeable IRL so no biggy! 

Here's the other ladies Day 3 mani's!
