Manicure Monday - Blue Ombre Glitter Nails

Happy Manicure Monday everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend - it was still so cold here, so it was pretty quiet for us!

My short little nails are slowly growing out - a little bit longer, and I'm hoping in that time I will get some inspiration for nail art! In the meantime, I'm doing a glitter ombre mani for the week. 

For the month of January, the #CBBxManiMonday group is doing purple and blue manicures - the colour of the year for 2022 is Very Peri and it's a lovely blend of the two colours!

The products I used for this week's manicure are:
  • Essence Out of Space Stories polish in Intergalactic Adventure 
  • Nails Inc Winter Lights Nail Polish in London Lane
  • Pacifica Beauty in Plant Magic Translucent Topper in Fairy Dust 
  • Moyra Stamping Nail Polish Top Coat

This manicure was quick and easy to do - I started with two coats of the base polish (this is a purple blue duochrome). Then, with the blue glitter, I concentrated it at the bottom of my nails and thinned out the amount of glitter in the middle of the nail. I added a little silver glitter as well, the blue on blue didn't have much contrast! 

As always, make sure to check out Cosmetic Proof and Prairie Beauty Love to see their purple and blue nails too! And if you have an nail art suggestions you want to see, let me know - I need some inspiration right now! 


  1. OMG this glitter combination! I will have to find something in my collection because I love the fish scales effect it gives off!

    1. love the way it turned out - but so hard to photograph with the base polish so shimmery!
