Digit-al Dozen | New & Improved Day 4

Press Sample
Hey guys! Today is Day 4 of Digit-al Dozen, New and Improved. This time I decided to try something way outside of my comfort zone, mainly because I'm impatient and this mani was very time consuming but also because I didn't actually have the proper materials used to do it(at least based on all the tutorials I've seen) so I improvised. Today I'll be sharing with you my Shattered Glass nails! And guys I am beyond in love with the result!

When reading and watching tutorials on how to do this everyone was using the gift wrap iridescent cellophane, which I did not have so I tried it using some foil from the born pretty store.

I started out by cutting up the foil into a bunch of little shards. While my black base was still kind of tacky, using a wax pencil I applied the shards to my nails, cutting off any pieces that hung over the edges of my nails with cuticle clippers. Sealed it all with a glossy top coat.

Here was my result! Guys, I LOVE how this turned out! It came out way better then I was expecting that's for sure!

Polishes and Products Used:
Nail Glam by Jovee - Flawless
Born Pretty Store - Foil
Born Pretty Store - Wax pencil
Glisten and Glow - HK Girl Glossy Top Coat

I can't get over how awesome this effect is! *swoon*
Check out the close up!

And just because I felt like my camera couldn't capture all its color shifting greatness I did a video! haha!
