Last weekend was SUPER busy. Friday I went to Olde Mecklenburg Brewery for some fantastic German food and a German style Christmas market then Saturday I did a brewery tour with some friends and it all ended with a holiday party on Sunday night. So I needed a festive manicure that would wear well and I would be ok looking at for 3 full days. For someone like me who doesn’t love traditional holiday colors that was a difficult feat.
I figured the easiest way to achieve this goal was going to be glitter. As I was digging through my stash SinfulColors Twlight Twinkles caught my eye. A gold glitter top coat? Perfect, festive yet not red or green!
Twilight Twinkles is a gold glitter top coat that has various shapes and different sizes of glitter all suspended in a clear base. I found dabbing this glitter onto the nail instead of a normal application technique worked the best. As long as I used the dabbing method I didn’t have any trouble getting glitter on the nail.
I topped nails inc. Kensington High Street with Twilight Twinkles and I absolutely loved the result. Kensington High Street is a deep crimson red polish that, while red, is a bit more subdued than your typical holiday red. The combination of the two polishes is lovely and very holiday appropriate.
I am just so impressed with Twilight Twinkles. It’s a versatile, high quality glitter that’ll set you back $2 (or less). Can’t beat that!
