Last week I bought 3 of Barry M’s new glitter nail paints (there’s 5 new ones, Silver Multi Glitter, Aqua Glitter, Pink Silver Glitter, Magenta Glitter and Gold Glitter. Having a look on Barry M they also have Jewel Britannia, which I LOVE!) Silver Multi Glitter is the first one I tried out.
Silver Multi Glitter is packed with tiny, tiny glitter, mainly silver, and pink, blue and gold (possible more than I can’t see!) One coat was quite sheer, but it was opaque after three coats.
These show one coat on my index finger, two on my middle finger, and three on my ring and little fingers.
I love this polish, like most glitters it dried quickly, and had a gritty texture to it, which was fixed with a top coat. I have a lot of pictures of this one! I really wanted to try and show the colours in it, and it’s a lot more sparkly in person. It was also so easy to remove for a glitter, I was very surprised. I still used the foil method, and maybe it’s because the glitter is so small, but it only took about 5 minutes, and it all came off in one go. Usually with glitter I’d be sat with my nails wrapped up for at least 10 minutes. I wish all glitters were this quick to remove!
On to something else, hair products! I have really thick, long (almost waist length) hair, which has sort of a natural kink to it, and the only thing I can really do with it is straighten it. No matter how hard I try it just won’t curl! Tonight I tried out BaByliss 3035BU Thermo-Ceramic Rollers. They did the job, for 5 minutes, then all the curls dropped out, and I was just left with a slight wave (what my hair looks like anyway!) I then twisted my hair into a bun for an hour or so after that, and when I took it out my dropped curls had turned into lovely soft waves, but I don’t want to have to tie my hair in a bun for an hour after spending ages putting rollers in!
I’ve also ordered some sleep rollers to try out, which I’ve seen everywhere recently, thinking that hopefully having them in my hair for 8-9 hours will actually keep the style in my hair.
What I’d really like to know is if anyone has any recommendations for mousse, or setting spray etc, that might keep a curl in my hair for more than 5 minutes!
