“Shattered Glass” glitter placement. 

 You may be noticing lots of versions of the shattered glass manicure popping up online. I’ve been really wanting to give it a go, but cutting up teeny slivers of irredesant paper seemed a little overwhelming. So instead I pulled out my bottle of Color Club Diamond Drops for a little glitter placement. 

  
Polishes used for this manicure were:

  • China Glaze Don’t Get Elfed Up
  • Color Club Diamond Drops
  • Seche Vite
  • Small size dotting tool. 

This mani is super easy to do. You start off with a dry base colour (I used China Glaze Don’t Get Elfed Up from the Cheers 2015 collection). Once dry, I used a small sized dotting tool to fish out different sized glitter shards from Diamonf Drops and create the shattered glass patterns. When I had filled in the patterns on all my nails, I sealed everything in with two coats of Seche Vite–although I probably could have went with three as some glitters were still sticking up in some places! 

 
I love these. So much, I had to wear them for two days! Diamond Drops has the most incredible holo effect, I couldn’t stop staring at my nails! This would definitely been a fun design to wear to any holiday parties coming up, or even New Years Eve! 
So what do you think of this version of Shattered Glass nails? Have you given this technique a try yet?
