I have done quite a few reviews and posts about Tip Top already. It’s one of my favourite brands of nail polish: high quality and very affordable! Recently, Joan sent me a goodie box with their latest trends in nail art:
I received the following:
Sprinkle beads – Sexy in the City & Who’s Wearing What
Wild Thing Glitter – Wasabi Whisper & Electric Pineapple
Confetti Glitter – Once In a Blue Moon & Pat on the Black
The Confetti glitter looks REALLY good. The blue actually reminded me of a manicure I saw on Pinterest, so I was happy to see the Once in a Blue Moon colour in the box. If you have worked with very fine craft glitter before, you will find application very easy, and the finish is beautiful!
The Sprinkle Beads reminded me of the three dimensional “caviar” look. The beads are not as fine as the glitter, so you might find it easier to pour it back in the container, but they do tend to roll around a bit, so work on a flat surface! After applying the colour, pour the beads on the nail (while polish is still tacky) and pat it down with your finger for a smooth finish.
The Wild Thing Glitter has a name that really suits it! It looks wild, and it is quite difficult to get the same “polished” look as with the other two. I would recommend painting all your fingers in a similar colour and then just doing your two ring fingers with the Wild Thing Glitter.
If you don’t feel so daring, try this look:
Some interesting nail trends I found on Pinterest. You can try all these with the new Tip Top Range
For best results:
Work where there is no wind!
Use a piece of paper underneath your nails to catch the falling glitter, so you can re-use it.
Do not apply a top coat afterwards when using the sprinkle beads.
And then, just a last note, with all this nail art you need a good polish remover that won’t damage your nails. A while back,I came across Tip Top’s Nail enamel eraser. Being a “green girl”, I was immediately impressed that it only had three ingredients (acetone, olive oil and Vitamin E). The texture and the “feel” is quite different from other nail polish removers and because of the olive oil, it leaves a slight oily residue. It makes my nails feel so healthy and they are looking better already!
*A note from Joan:Tip Top Nail Enamel Remover includes Olive Oil which is a humectant that sits on top of the skin as it’s molecular structure is too large to penetrate the skin, this keeps the nail and surrounding skin moisturised. The Vitamin E is an anti-oxidant which fights free radicals, in this case the acetone, from damaging the nail.
