Kami Fubuki/Glitter Placement Nail Art

Kami Fubuki/Glitter Placement Nail Art.

So I have a simple but effective design for you guys today. I really like this because it is so easy and quick! 

I discovered this type of glitter/sequin from TWI_STAR’s funfetti cake nail art video. You can check this out here.👇

But the Kami Fubuki name didn’t appear to me until Sveta Sanders video. You can check this out here as well.👇

I then searched the hashtag, then realised… 😂 

I bought a pot of dots in three different sizes and three different colours. I got this from eBay. You can buy them at the link below.👇

Without further ado, let’s begin!

So I began like I normally do by applying O.P.I’s Glitter Off base coat. I then applied one coat, yes, you read it correctly, ONE COAT of Revlon’s Socialite. Here’s my swatch photo.👇

I then used Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat to half of my nails, although, if you have ordinary clear nail polish, use that instead. It’ll give you more time to apply the glitters. I didn’t because I don’t have any. You can see I planned this well can’t you… 😂 

Now it’s time to apply the glitters individually to the wet half of your nail. I licked the end of an orange wood and used that to pick up the glitters. Then repeat on the other side. 

I then applied a nice thick coat of Seche Vite. 

Here’s the video.👇

I hope you enjoyed reading and watching my latest design. If you do this yourself, be sure to tag me (@annes.nails) or use the hashtag #annesnails. 

Thank you. 😘

O.P.I Glitter Off | Swatch & Review

So, as promised, here is my review for O.P.Is’ Glitter Off base coat. This can be found at most mainstream online shops (eBay, Amazon, Nail Polish Direct, Rainbow Connection ect…) for around £8 – £15. 

I’m going to start by saying that buying this product can be tricky if you don’t know exactly what you’re looking for. If you search ‘peel off base coat,’ this product probably won’t show up. Purely because, this is not listed by O.P.I as a peel off base coat. It is listed as Natural Nail Base Coat (peelable nail polish.) Most of O.P.Is’ base coats are called ‘Natural Nail’ base coats. The only noticeable difference when searching for this product is the cap. Which says ‘Glitter Off.’ So, I would suggest searching ‘O.P.I Natural Nail Base Coat,’ this should give you the best results. 

Anyway, here is my swatch video. 👇

Pretty impressive right? 

I also tried this peel off base coat with glitter on for 24 hours and, just like in the video, there was no chipping or lifting anywhere. 

Application:

The application with this product is good, it is on the thinner side and will easily flood your cuticles if too much is applied to the nail at once. The brush is great, unlike most polish brushes, this is short. The bristles are short and a decent width so the three stroke technique can certainly be used. 

Drying:

This base coat is glue based, so it goes on white and streaky, but dries clear. It dries a little matte, and very smooth. It does take about 4 – 5 minutes to dry. Which, in my books, isn’t too bad.

Wear:

As said above and in the video, this is very durable. I washed up and took showers without anything chipping or lifting. With both glitter and ordinary nail polish.

Removal:

The removal is very easy. As you saw in the video, I just used an orange wood stick (wooden cuticle pusher) and started from the cuticle to the tip. I had to push quite hard to get it to lift at first, but then it came off in two clean pieces and left no trace. I have had them come off in once piece to.

All in all, this is my new favourite base coat. I don’t like using nail polish remover so this was the answer to my prayers. 

This peel off base coat gets a 4 out of 5 from me.

I hope you enjoyed my swatch and review blog. As always, if you have any enquiries, you can email me at aeaf1999@gmail.com.

Thank you,

Black & Red Glitter Nail Art Video Tutorial

Hi everyone! For the first time in a while, I can actually tell you what’s coming up in the next few weeks. 

First I have the swatch and review video and blog for the black holographic glitter polish used in the video below.

Then the same above but with the red glitter polish, again, used in the video below. 

After that, a nail art video.

Then, a swatch and review video and blog for O.P.Is’ Glitter Off base coat.

Next, a review blog for O.P.Is’ Breakfast At Tiffany’s On The Go kit.

Then another nail art video. 

It’s not like me to have things planned out, I normally just wing it. But I got a some nail mail today that definitely deserves a blog review. 

So anyway, back to the task in hand, below is the video for my latest mani! 

Products used for this design:

1. O.P.I – Glitter Off base coat.

2. Models Own – Sardonyx.

3. Models Own – Obsidian.

4. Caution Vinyls – Straight line vinyls. (Variety pack.)

5. O.P.I – Top Coat.

If I’m honest, I’m not entirely happy with this design. I wish I’d used a brighter red. It isn’t that noticeable against the black. That’s why the photo isn’t too good, it was the only way to show the design. Lesson learned. Perhaps I’ll redo this mani in the future. 

Thank you for reading! :mrgreen:

Any question about the design or the products used in this video, feel free to comment or email me at aeaf1999@gmail.com.

O.P.I Make Mine Sparkling Swatch & Review Video

Here is my swatch video for @opi_products Limited Edition Make Mine Sparkling duo set. I love this duo, they go really well together. The navy blue is a ONE COAT WONDER! It’s amazing. It has a gorgeous smooth formula and it dries really shiny. Then there’s the glitter polish… Which I’m sure is supposed to be a topper. But then why does it have a blue base colour? So I tried it on its own, which did not work. It definitely needs to be sponged on or used as a topper. Enjoy the video!
