Nailtopia Shining Stars Review

Hi my lovelies, happy Sunday! I'm not working tomrorow so I actually mean that :P

Today I have a little review of Nailtopia Shining Stars which, I will be honest, are my favourites from the bunch I got sent which you can see here.

When I started this mani I decided that I wasn't going to use stickers on all the nails, just three on each hand (middle, ring and thumb). I personally love the look, but my mum wasn't so keen!
Base Coat: CND - Stickey
Base Colour: Models Own - Peach Sherbet
Glitter: Sinful Colors - Paris
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Advanced Hard As Nails

It was honestly one of the hardest things ever trying to capture the glitter on these stars as they're so sparkly, the texture of them is a little bit like fabric so you get a real depth to the glitter too.

I decided to try and cut these so I didn't have a massive gap on the sides of my nails etc, and it worked out perfectly, they were really easy to cut, and it didn't damage the stickers at all.

See what I mean about fabric-like? It gives the glitter such a great pay off.

Peach Sherbet had actually been on my buy list for quite some time. When it comes to a few different colours I'm mega fussy about the particular shade, I have plenty of peaches in my stash, but this is perfect for this type of look, and I just love Models Own cremes!

Hope you've all had a good weekend so far. I've spent most of mine being gloomy, but I'm off to see The 1975 later so I'm sure that will perk me up!
