Lime Crime Zodiac Loose Glitter Aquarius & Lime Crime Crema De Limon

Ok, third attempt at using loose glitter. This time I used two coats of the amazing Lime Crime Crema De Limon. (It's still the best yellow polish in my collection so far!) I dipped the tip of each nail into Lime Crime Zodiac Glitter Aquarius. Then two coats of top coat for a smooth finish. This is my favorite of the Lime Crime glitters I've tried. It's a navy matte glitter with flashes of turquoise. So pretty!

Lime Crime Zodiac Loose Glitter Cancer & Lime Crime Milky Ways

Here's my second attempt at using loose glitter. Actually the glitter application in the first three photos was done by my amazing boyfriend, Will. I'll show my own hideous but hilarious attempts at the end of the post. I used Lime Crime Milky Ways for the base & then Will sprinkled Lime Crime Zodiac Cancer on top while it was still wet. It's a very pretty vivid turquoise glitter.

Will took the glitter shaker away from me after seeing the mess I made of my left hand! I started with my pinkie & it was okay, but then I for a big glob on the next finger. I thought I would just try to do a heavier coat but I was still just making a mess. I'm very clumsy & impatient & this type of application takes a steady but light touch & Will had no trouble at all. He suggested covering two of the three shaker holes with tape for my next attempt.

Lime Crime Zodiac Loose Glitter Pisces & Lime Crime Peaches & Cream

I've never played with loose glitter before! Lime Crime sent me a few to try from their new Zodiac Glitter set & here's my first attempt. Here we have two coats of Lime Crime Peaches & Cream and an accent nail of Zodiac Glitter Pisces. Lime Crime accurately describes it as a periwinkle blue with a green/copper shift. So pretty but I'm afraid I need some practice with the loose glitter! I tried taking the shaker lid off and dipping my wet nail right in the pot. I didn't get an even coat but that has everything to do with my poor technique & nothing to do with the product. I think I can do a much better job next time.
