I've seen hexagon shaped glitter used in a lot of great manicures (particularly a bunch from The Nailasaurus) and knew I had to try it out for myself!
Born Pretty sent me their loose hexagon shaped glitter in the silver color to test and review, and it may just be my favorite item I've received from BPS so far! Looking at the glitter from this angle in the container you can't tell just how pretty it is, but as soon as a little light hits it...
...it becomes gorgeous!
And here is the glitter in action. One of my favorite ways I've seen this type of glitter used is to create a border around the nails, so that is what I decided to try. The base color I used is China Glaze In the Limelight.
I was a little worried the glitter might be tricky to work with since loose glitters can be such a mess, but it was surprisingly easy.
I used an orange stick to pick up one piece of glitter at a time, I found it was easiest to pick up the pieces of glitter that were stuck to the lid or stuck on the edges of the container. That way you aren't accidentally picking up a bunch of pieces at once.
Then I just put a tiny bit of clear polish where I wanted the glitter to be and gently put each piece in place with the orange stick.
I can't wait to try and use this glitter in different manicures, I'm sure I'll get a lot of use out of it! If you want to try the glitter for yourself, it costs $2.38 (and you get a lot of product in the jar) and it can be purchased here. And once again here is a 10% off coupon code you can use on any Born Pretty purchases!
