Framed with diamonds

Hi guys! Today I did a mani with BornPrettyStore diamond shaped glitters. My original plan was to make half moons with the glitter, which I tried the other day, but then the polish started bubbling. Luckily I don't have that often, it's so annoying! But I did like the combo of the red and beige, so I gave that polish another go today. Instead of the half moons I ended up framing my nails instead. I think the hexagonal glitters might be a bit easier to apply straight, but I liked how this turned out too!

To give you an idea of the size of the pots, here's the pot next to a pot of hexagonal glitters that I showed here. As you can see, it's a lot bigger and I already thought I could never run out of the smaller pots! You could even dip your wet nails in if you'd like, that might give a nice result too.
I applied them with a metal nail art tool (it came in a set which I'll show more of some other time) and that went easier than with a toothpick or rosewood stick, because the metal was easier to wipe clean in between (I had tiny bits of cotton pad get stuck to the wooden sticks before). I'll definitely use that from now on for the application of loose glitter :)


These glitters cost $2,38 per jar, I chose color #7. The nail design set that also had the metal tool costs $5,96 and contains 15 pieces. And with coupon code ABJ61 you'll get another 10% off!

What do you think of this framed look? :)
