China Glaze Glam-More Crackle Glitter Tips

Glitter can be so much fun. If you are not planning to get a full nail of glitter, then simply add them to your tips like you would in a French manicure. Add a flower accent and you’re all done for these easy simple glitter tips. Glam-more is a gorgeous fuchsia coloured crackle glitter polish. 



I really started off trying to get the tips to crackle only but the polish was quite watery at the beginning so the cracks were barely visible. So to make the polish a regular glitter one instead of a crackle glitter I just went over again with another thicker coat of polish on the tips. The formula seems to thicken after a few uses. It does crack but it seems to do so better over larger areas and after the formula thicken up a bit. This was the first manicure done with China Glaze’s Glam-More Crackle Glitter.

Start with a base coat to make remove of glitter easier
Glitter applied in two coats over tips and one coat on accent finger. Add top coat.
I didn’t quite like the look of the full nail with the crackle so I just removed it and made it a glitter tip instead. So much better now! 


You probably guessed I just couldn’t stop there and then added the pink flowers to it. Using a nail dotting tool, I applied OPI’s Pink Friday in the shape of a flower and the middle dot of the China Glaze Glam-More crackle glitter to tie it all together. 

 
Hope you enjoyed. How do you wear your glitter?
Happy Glitter Glam!
XOXO

    1. At one point in time my nails were very weak and I used an Orly product (totally forgot the name now) but it has kevlar fibers in it, the same fibers used in bullet proof vests!!!! After that they were super strong and grew out without much effort. I've stopped using it a long time now and they still are like this without any effort!!

Hot Milk Sponge Cake with Fresh Fruit & Coconut

In today's yummy post we are doing an easy sponge cake (no creaming of butter and sugar involved). Instead of torting this cake we are using two loaf pans to give us our two layers, which we will pull together with vanilla buttercream. I love the rectangular look of this cake rather than the traditional round or square but more importantly the flavors of the toasted coconut on the sides and fresh fruit on top makes for a mouth watering dessert.
