Hey guys! Today I have a pretty interesting mani to share with you featuring item #21822 in option 1332 sent to me for review from bornprettystore.com.

I used Zoya Sue for my base, Sue is completely opaque in 3 coats for me. If you’d like the finished result to be matte a great way to do that is to apply the glitter powder while your last coat of polish is still wet.

To apply the glitter gradient to my nail I placed my wet nail over the glitter bottle and used a fan brush to dip in and lift a small amount of glitter out. I then lightly dusted the glitter up towards my cuticle area and used the fan brush to brush off the excess in a downwards motion. This glitter has a texture that is almost exactly like sand, it is also very matte and has hardly any shimmer in it. I did enjoy how subtle the gradient is before adding a topcoat!

Here is a quick look at how full nail coverage looks with this glitter powder, it gave my nails an almost flocked look:

I did go a step further and used my Flash Dry quick dry topcoat from Bohemian Polish. I did not love it for this time of year. With a topcoat the glitter takes on the exact look of sand and would make a great base for some awesome beach nails! I did have to use 2 coats of topcoat to get it nice and smoothed out. Here is the finished result:
