A glittery weekend NOTD

Inspired by all the pretty NOTD blogposts recently, I decided to give myself a glittery manicure this weekend:

As we're heading towards Spring, I choose an uplifting lilac polish by Eyeko, followed by an old Constance Carroll fairy dust nail varnish, which has been sitting in my collection for years!

For such pretty nails, it was so simple and quick to do and I love how a layer of glitter instantly jazzes up a plain nail varnish!

Are you a fan of glittery nails? What colour did you wear this weekend?

  21. The colour mix is lovely! I have tried a few of the EYEKO varnishes and I personally think they are okay but the colours selection they come up with is really good and it`s good value for money!
