Today's Nails: Pink Sparkle

Today I decided to layer my nail varnish to create a slightly different look - well slightly different for me anyway! I started with a base coat of Collection 2000's Lasting Colour in Marshmallow, then once it was tacky I added a layer of Barry M Limited Edition Effects in Silver Glitter, finally I topped it off with a layer of Barry M Topcoat and Nail Hardener in Clear

I wanted something that was girly and professional looking with a fun twist but unfortunately the picture above doesn't really do this look justice! The finished look is great as I only did one coat of pink at the bottom, so the look is more subtle with the glittery highlight. I also don't usually add a topcoat but with the layer of glitter, I thought it was sensible to seal it in with a topcoat so that it wouldn't chip glitter specks everywhere!

I've had quite a few compliments on the colour (I suppose the glitter draws attention to the look!) and people seemed surprised that it was a layered look so I'm quite happy with my first experimentation!

What do you think? Do you ever layer nail varnishes for different looks? Let me know in the comments below!
