China Glaze Put a Bow on It

It’s been a while since I had a China Glaze nail polish on the blog :) Today I’d love to show you a holiday glitter from this brand:

Floral nail art on nude

The glitter polish is called Put a Bow on It #81392. It was a part of the China Glaze Happy HoliGlaze collection of 12 festive colors that were released for Christmas holidays 2013.

Put a Bow on It is a clear based polish with lots of fuchsia micro glitter in it.

If you want to wear the polish on its own, you’ll need at least 3 coats to reach a decent opacity, because the base doesn’t give any color. I’d recommend layering the glitter over a creme, or sponging it to create a sparkling gradient effect.

For the floral nude manicure I applied the glitter using a make up sponge. The sponge soaked most of the clear base and I got an even coverage with lots of glitter where needed, and without any base excess :)

The nude base color here is OPI My Vampire is Buff, and over the glitter gradient I used black floral decals. Also, a coat of a glossy top was needed to seal the decals and to give more shine to the fuchsia glitter.

I got this beauty for review from Beyond Polish beauty store. They have a wide selection of China Glaze colors including all kinds of glitters, holos, cremes and shimmers! Their prices are very good too, most of China Glaze polishes cost $3.50 with free USA shipping on orders over $100 :)

  1. It’s a pretty little glitter, and you used it the way I prefer to use glitters myself: as a sponged part :)
    The result is very beautiful!

      yep, sponging is one of my fav ways to use glitters too :) that way you will still get glittering effect, and the process of removing will be much easier

  2. I like the way you added the glitter on that nude shade, the final result is a super elegant manicure!

      yes the glitter particles are quite small, but there are lots and lots of them in the clear base, so the glittering effect is easily achieved :)

  5. I’d put a bow on it :D I like it
