A few months ago I ordered a bottle of my absolute favorite top coat from Glisten and Glow. After using it for a month, I realized that the consistency was off, so I contacted the brand and they were able to send me a new top coat. But on top of that, Jill sent the brand’s base coat and the Birthday Bash January 2017 nail polish! I thought what better way to show off this beautiful blurple holo than with some nail art. Find out how I used Glisten and Glow Birthday Bash down below!
I painted on one coat of the base coat and let that dry. I was a little scared that the base coat would stain my nails because it was green, but it didn’t! CND Stickey has the same blue tinge and stained my nails something fierce. Luckily this one works better and doesn’t stain!
After that I painted on two coats of Birthday Bash. The holo in this polish gets lost among the holo glitters that are throughout this, but it when it catches the light, it’s gorgeous. This dried to a semi-bumpy finish, so if you’re wearing this on its own, put on a thick coat of top coat.
For the stamping I used MoYou London Origami 03. I love how simple and elegant the patterns from the Origami collection. They make any color look beautiful and dressed up. I stamped this on using MoYou London After the Storm and the MoYou London Crystal Clear Stamper. To protect my nails from the stamping polish I used Glisten and Glow CTRL + ALT + DEL liquid latex barrier. I should probably order a new bottle soon. It’s more than half way done and it’s getting hard to get the product out!
To clean up my nails I used the Twinkled T #2 Clean Up Brush. Twi_Star started to use the #6 brush to clean up, and it makes the clean up process go by quicker. Maybe I should buy that one too and try it out? Let me know if you’d like to see a review on that.
After clean up was finished, I sealed in my design with a good, glossy coat of HK Girl Quick Dry Top Coat.
That’s my look using the Glisten and Glow Birthday Bash polish! What do you think of this look? Let me know down below!
