Multi-coloured glequin accent nail
What are glequins, you may be asking? Well, they were called that by the inimitable Sammy of The Nailasaurus, as a conjunction of the words glitter and sequins, because they are larger than one, but smaller than the other. Cool name, I think, and it seems to have pretty much stuck in the nail polish world. (Although I have to admit to calling them hexaquins to myself!)
Anyway, the place to get hold of these lovelies is the Born Pretty Store, which is an online store based in China. The prices are very reasonable and the delivery is fairly quick too – within a fortnight in my experience. Plus, a number of bloggers sport a 10% off code on their websites that you can use.
I had seen multicoloured glequins used over black by Glitter Tips and loved the look, so decided to try it out. I was going to do all my fingers, but I have to say that I started this later on in the evening and it took about half an hour, so I called it a day with just an accent nail.
I love how my nails look, and can only imagine how fantastic this would be on all ten.
For this manicure I’ve used:
- Base: two coats of L’Oreal Black Swan
- Multi-coloured glequins
- Top coat: Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Anti-Chip (2 coats)
