NOTD: Shazam!

I decided to try to create a 'magical' nail effect for my trip to the Harry Potter Studio Tour this week (post on this coming soon). I wanted a bit of sparkle, but with a twist.


For this, I used Essie's 'Where's my Chauffeur"  and then applied Topshop's '3D', a multi-tonal turquoise glitter in varying amounts of the tips.


It didn't come out quite how I intended it too, and I was a bit worried it looked a little 'Pageant Queen', but as my friend very kindly pointed out, I wasn't wearing a matching spangly dress, so it actually looked fine!

I have to say, I love the colour of the Essie polish, despite it taking three coats to get the opacity I wanted. The Topshop glitter was also so pretty - I will be trying this out on another colour in the future. I think Topshop polishes are such great quality for the price - if you haven't tried one, do - it will be well worth the £6.

What are your thoughts on these nails?
