I was digging around in my nail polish stash last week, looking for inspiration, when I discovered this loose glitter from essence. It's now long-discontinued but I couldn't remember if I had even used it (like so much in my stash from my shopoholic days). As a base, I used two coats of "midnight blue" by Sinful Colours. On my ring finger, I sprinkled a generous amount of the glitter over my nail while the polish was still wet, then (very) gently patted it down so that all the glitter particles lay flat. I then sealed the whole lot with topcoat. I particularly love the few turquoise glitter dots interspersed in the blue-violet glitter, it adds a lovely touch of dimension!
