I never used to paint my nails on a regular basis but it is something I have started getting into quite recently. I bought a glitter nail varnish about a year ago and although I am not really a glittery/sparkly girl, I have been using it quite a lot in the last month.
When I did my nails like this, I decided I wanted to use two colours I have been neglecting a bit at the moment, the grey nail polish and the green one. I don't actually really like the green polish by itself so this was a good way to add a bit of colour without painting all my nails in a disgusting pastel mint green colour (which I am not a huge fan of if I am honest).

I started off by applying Sally Hansen Hard As Nails, then once that was dry I applied OPI Skull & Glossbones over, but only on four nails on each hand. I decided to put the Barry M Mint Green colour on my ring finger on my left hand and my thumb on my other hand. Once that was dry, I put the Rimmel Disco Ball varnish over the top of the green nails, concentrating more heavily on the tips. I then used my trusty Seche Vite over all my nails so they would dry quicker, I also find it stops the nails with glitter on them from feeling so gritty as well as making my nails look shinier.
