NAILS | Rainbow Glitter Highlighter Nails

I have been DYING to try rainbow glitter highlighter nails since last summer ever since watching this video from Simpy Nailogical. I ran into some issues with the glitter I chose so I may try again once I find the perfect one. I knew I had to have at least one fairly opaque holo glitter in my stash and decided on Floss Gloss - Dimepiece. I picked this up years ago with a couple of other colours, but because the shipping was so ridiculous to Canada for these 5.5mL bottles, I have not added to my Floss Gloss stash since.

Next, I needed liquid highlighters to colour the glitter so I picked up a pack of five colours from Daiso for, you guessed it, a whopping $2! The issue I ran into with the glitter I polish I chose was that it was way too chunky. It didn't have a smooth finish so even when it dried, I had to *TAP* the highlighter colours on or else I would literally peel off chunks of glitter!

Even though I didn't like how the glitter was looking, I went over the highlighted areas that needed more colour and then double top-coated the manicure until the grittiness disappeared.

I love starting the new year off with rainbows, don't you?
