Sparkling Party Mani Ideas

party-nails-nail-art

I recently ordered some nail sticks as I fancied experimenting with different colours and designs.  I had so much fun doing these - think kid in toy shop - and thought I’d share some pics in the hope of inspiring some of you looking for party mani ideas!  I promise they were all really easy to do and the only tool I used was the Bourjois dotting tool, though a bobby pin or cocktail stick would do the job!

I photographed the nails with the colours used for each look above each one, with the shade names noted below.

1. Deborah Lippmann Razzle Dazzle & Mavala Sparkling Bronze #230

2. Butter London Cotton Buds with M&S Limited Collection Gold Shimmer (identical dupe of Estee Lauder Nouveau Riche - am convinced these are the same product!)

3. NYC Money Never Sleeps & Saffron London Silver Glitter (brilliant ebay cheapie glitter)

4. NYC Red Me The News, Saffron London Silver Glitter & Seventeen Deconstructed Nail Studs

5. Seventeen Deconstructed Suede polish + Nail Studs, Revlon Black Lingerie on tip, Seche Vite over studs.

6. Seventeen Deconstructed Suede Nail polish - this matt black with fine silver shimmer is opaque in one coat, love & the Nail Studs from the same limited edition set are really easy to use. I lift them with a dotting tool barely touched in wet polish and apply to wet nails.

7. Revlon Black Lingerie (best black I’ve ever tried) & Mavala Sparkling Bronze #230

8. Revlon Black Lingerie & Models Own Sparkler (love these chunky glitter strands - full review here)

9. Models Own Artstix Nail Duo in Blue Maldives & Sea Spray - icy blues like this work well in Winter too and make a refreshing change from the usual seasonal tones

10. Butter London Cotton Buds, China Glaze Snow Globe & Models Own Sparkler tips

11. Butter London Posh Bird & Bourjois Laser Toppings in Sunscales

12. Dior Red Royalty #999 (my all time favourite red - review here) with dots in Butter London Cotton Buds & NYC High Line Green and Saffron London Silver Glitter tips

My favourites are 2 & 7 - how about you?  Here’s a closer look…
