Nails: Accessorize Nail Speckle in Damselfly

Accessorize Nail Speckle Polish in Damselfly - £3.45

Isn’t she a beaut? I love the base colour of this nail polish, such a pretty shade of blue which is on the brighter side of pastel but not too bright at all. I also love how the glitter is kind of suspended in the polish rather than just sitting on top of it – I found that this made it quite easy to apply the glitter evenly too. The nail polish is sheer and takes a lot of coats to build up to this opacity, about 4 I think. It might be a good idea to apply a similarly coloured base and then just pop a layer of this on top. Because of all of the glitter involved this nail polish has that bumpy texture that not even a thick, glossy top coat can disguise but if you can live with that this polish is a winner. It’s so pretty and unusual and perfect for spring time.

What’s on your nails at the moment?

  1. I absolutely love the look of this polish. It's a shame it applies so sheer! I always mess my nails up when I have to apply more than 3 layers. Might give one of these ago with a base colour like you suggested though, it would still look super pretty xx

    1. Yeah good plan! I think the layers dried quite quickly so it didn't do that thing where it goes all gloopy and takes forever to dry! xx

  2. That's insane how much glitter is packed in! Might be a pain to remove though!
