Firework fingers nail polish

I have decided to go all glittery for bonfire night and create a firework effect on my nails. I began with Opia Nail Laquer from Primark in a sparkly midnight blue. The bottle recommends applying two coats but this polish was so thin that I needed at least 3 coats to get a dark ‘night-sky’ shade. I then painted each of my nails with a different ‘firework’ sparkle. My index finger has one coat of Eyeko Disco Polish in silver – a very dense glitter but a little bit too thick and clumpy to apply easily. My middle finger was painted with Models Own polish in ‘Disco Mix’ – a blue and purple glitter topcoat that delivered masses of sparkle with only one coat – definitely my favourite, but it is the most pricey. My ring finger has my new ‘Gold Flecked’ topcoat from Avon – again only one coat providing a great firework explosion of glitter. And finally my little finger was painted in the same polish in a fuchsia purple shade.

Having finished painting my nails for bonfire night I have realised that it’s quite possible that no-one will see my nail-art efforts, as I intend to be well bundled up with fluffy mittens on my hands to keep me warm tonight. Oh well, at  least I know they’re there, sparkling away under my gloves.
