Glitter Topper Nails

I love sparkly things, but for my eyes I want shimmer not glitter. What do I do with glitter eye shadow? Put it on my nails! 
When I placed an order with Mon Ennui, I ordered some colour shifting eye shadow, I didn't realise how large the glitter was in some of the samples, so the 4 jars sat unused in a make up draw. When I say unused, I don't mean not admired, as I'd often pick the jars up and be mesmerized by the gorgeous colours. Desperately wanting to use them, I decided I'd try applying on my nails.

For the base colour, I decided to use Essie Da Bush. 

Whilst the second coat was still wet, I sprinkled Mon Ennui Siren over the top. To even out the surface, I applied to thick coats of Seche Vite.

I included so many pics to try and capture the sparkle and gorgeous colour of the glitter.

I have 3 other glitter eye shadows from Mon Ennui that I'll be sure to post when I apply those to my nails :)


  1. Hon this is SO clever of you - I LOVE this sparkly look, and what a great way to show off the shadows that you normally wouldn't wear. I'm so looking forward to seeing the other colours you've got stashed away xxx

  2. You're so welcome darling, I'm hanging out till you post the others! I just adore the manis & EOTD's you create, and I've nominated you for an Inspired Blog Award
