I started with Rimmel - Tip Whitener for my base, and after two coats had dried I added a coat of Essence Colour3 - Stop For An Ice Cream, and a coat of Essence Twins - Clyde. Because the glitter was so smooth I decided to stamp before adding a top coat. I stamped in Konad Special Polish White,and then filled in the image. I originally filled in the image with the Rimmel polish, but I knocked it on the second layer, and it was nowhere near dry, so I sort of scraped it off with my nail, and went back in with Konad white. When that was dry I stamped with BYS - Black Satin, and I should've added a top coat before stamping, as I had soem problems with the whole image transferring. Then I added two little dots of pink to the cheeks, and used acetone to pat them, to make them less opaque. I finally added a top coat, but that smeared the design a little bit.

Here's a shot of Stop For An Ice Cream before I added the glitter. It's an out of focus pic, but it does do the fleck shimmer the best justice.
Here's what I used:
I have some shots where the glitter looks amazing on my nails, but I'm just too lazy to edit them together. I've done nothing much productive this weekened, and it's taken me hours to write this post, and even as I write this I'm having issues with photos messing up the whole format. And right now I should be getting ready for my mate coming over. It's like someone has set me on the speed of super-slow-procrastinator. Which now I've said it; just sounds like some sort of comic hero name :P
I hope everyone's had a good weekend, more productive than mine!
