Purple gel nails with glitter | Y&S 059, Bluesky 63921, NYK1 glitter
These purple gel nails with glitter are a slight variation on my recent dusky pink gel with glitter nails. They use the same glitter as I used before, but here I paired it with some purple-toned gel polishes instead.
I used the purple gel polish by Y&S that I bought recently and which came in a set of four Y&S polishes. It went so well with a dusky lavender colour, Bluesky 63921 (sometimes known as Thistle Violet), so I used that with it, and added glitter on my middle fingernails.
The darker purple polish is 059 from the [amazon_textlink asin=’B07538CHZF’ text=’Y&S gel polish set #003′ template=’ProductLink’ store=’kerruticles-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’267b3082-be2e-11e7-b5cb-45c61adaddf8′].
The four gel polishes in this set only cost £8.99 – such a bargain. I had half expected them to be poor quality and perhaps even experience some issues with them, but they’ve been brilliant.
The glitter is once again from an [amazon_textlink asin=’B00O7ROD3C’ text=’NYK1 set’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’kerruticles-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’60be3d8c-be2f-11e7-a2f3-253bd38402b2′]. I applied it this time over an un-cured layer of [amazon_textlink asin=’B0045K1N8E’ text=’Gelish Structure gel’ template=’ProductLink’ store=’kerruticles-21′ marketplace=’UK’ link_id=’c629c96d-df7e-11e7-9c10-df7e40eff9dd’] polish, which I then cured, and finally used two coats of gel top coat to seal it in smoothly.
I have tried – in vain – to get my camera and lighting set-up to accurately show glitters and holographic effects. I usually take my photos in a light box, using manual settings, and this just doesn’t show any sparkle at all. So I’ve tried using a flash in addition to my lights, but I still can’t show the sparkly goodness of these. I think I’m going to have to start adding fake sparkles!
