Black with Sparkles

So, you remember the feeling you get when you see someone wearing something (be it clothes, accessories or beauty products) and it looks so good on them that you just have to try it out yourself? Well, that's the feeling I 've been having since checking out this stunning nail polish combination on Emma's (aka Magpie Sparkles) blog. EPIC indeed! ;)

Naturally, it was only a matter of time before I tried it out myself, so here I present you:

The little miracle product used to achieve this effect is the Shu Uemura nail enamel supplement mineral in glitter (miss Magpie Sparkles used the full sized bottle in glitter-PA885, unfortunately mine only says "glitter" on the back, but it was the only one I could find).



It's basically a clear nail polish, which combines micro-glitter particles with larger reflective flakes and it never fails to impress even after only one coat. Personally, I layer it over an opaque colour and...boom! Effortlessly sparkly, dramatic nails! Thanks Emma...! :)
