Gold Glitter Sponged Tips & Stars

I say stars in the title... But they're not very star like. Originally these were meant to be snowflakes, but I just couldn't achieve this. The idea came when my friend Amy posted an image on my Facebook of gold glitter fade with snowflake decals on. I thought it looked lovely, and I remembered that I had some snowflake stickers somewhere, but when I couldn't find them I settled for trying to do them free hand. Unfortunately doing them freehand meant that they weren't as delicate and perfect as I'd wanted them to be. So I settled for some "stars" made of lines... And the next day I found my Snowflake decals :P

A thank you goes to my sister-in-law Martine for lending me this french manicure colour, as I don't own one :]

  3. Thanks all!

    @Beauty on a college budget: I used a makeup sponge. I ripped off a little bit, dipped it into some polish that I'd placed on a sheet of paper; dab it on the piece of paper to remove excess, then onto your nails at the tip. And just work your way up to 3/4 or the nail, and repeat until the tip's more opaque than the middle of your nail :] I hope that explains it.
