Recently I have become obsessed with glitter nail polish.
A self-confessed girly girl, there's nothing I love more than anything that sparkles. When I was 13 it was acceptable to wear Tammy girl t-shirts encrusted with diamantés, but at the age of 21, my tastes have matured (a lot), so the one way I get my sparkle fix nowadays is adorning my finger nails with the glitziest of glitter nail polishes.
So you can imagine how delighted I was when I stumbled across the little gem that is Technic's "Carnival" multi-coloured glitter polish in Blushers, a bargain beauty store in my home town. At £1.49, not only is this polish purse friendly, it's a blatant dupe of OPI's "Rainbow Connection" polish.
What I really love about "Carnival" is that the pieces of glitter are big instead of being teeny tiny. This makes your nails look really sparkly, so you'll only need around 3 coats if you want full on glitter. Whereas polishes with small pieces of glitter in look great as top coats, "Carnival" looks best, in my opinion, worn alone. However, I did apply a nude base coat before applying this, as I think it gives a more even result.
I can see this being my favourite nail polish this summer. And if we have a typical British summertime, at least I'll feel happy every time I look down to admire my sparkly manicure!
Have you tried this nail polish?
