NOTD : Lava Nails 

I've been seeing this look all over the place at the moment, so I figured I would recreate it myself. I love the blast of glitter at the cuticle, it's sort of a reverse glitter tip. It's a cute way to wear glitter without looking like a 12 year old girl or it taking hours to remove! I adore this look, its  girly and pretty as well as being sophisticated and glamourous! 

I used two coats of Models Own : Purple gray over the whole nail. Purple gray is a pretty slate gray purple polish, which is classy and appropriate for all occasions. I then applied Barry M Nail Paint : Pink silver glitter (reviewed here) using a small paint brush in light stroaks from the cuticle, about 2/3 of the way up the nail. I added two coats of the glitter to give a strength to the look. Finish off with a couple of coats of your favourite top coat and voila! 

What other ways do you use glitter polish?
If you try this look please send me a picture, I'd love to see.
