The Digit-al Dozen does All that Glitters ~ Glitter Placement

It is Day 3 of ‘All That Glitters’ for the Digital Dozen. The Digital Dozen is a small group of highly skilled bloggers and nail artists who do 5 themed manis each month. I am seriously excited about todays mani. There is always a level of excitement when you have an idea in your head and it turns out even better than you imagined it, AND this is my first successful glitter placement mani! I was going to leave this for Friday (the whole save the best for last) but quite frankly I couldn’t wait any longer!

Chances are you have seen some absolutely divine glitter placement nails if you’ve been involved in the polish community for long. I’ve always stared at them in disbelief as even the simplest of glitter placement has eluded me. But what would a glitter prompt be without glitter placement? I doubt I will ever be as talented as the true glitter placement masters.. but I’m legit excited about how this one turned out.

For this mani I used the following items:

  • Colors by Llarowe Rezipped
  • Painted Polish Midnight Mischief
  • Delush Polish Dazed and Enthused Stamping Plate
  • What’s Up Nails Sapphire Confetti 
  • Nail Foil Glue
  • Wax Placement Stick
  • Gelous Top Coat

It was pretty much torture keeping this mani under wraps for almost 2 weeks. I am so pleased with how it turned out. I hope you all love it as much as I do! I saw somewhere a couple weeks ago about using nail foil glue, so many thanks to whoever said that. It made all the difference in the world! My sister said they look like jewels. What do you think? There will be more glitter placement in my future, as I may have gone a little overboard and ordered a ton of loose glitter in my excitement! 😂

I’ll be back tomorrow with even more glitter! You can follow The Digital Dozen here on Instagram. My social media links are below. And as always check out the inlinkz below to see all the amazing glitter manis!

  • I thoroughly enjoyed every bit of this post. Your excitement, the awesome mani, the beautiful photos!! Everything you did with these made them even more special. I too had avoided glitter placements – but now that I found how addictive they are, I should order more loose glitters too!! Also, I’m very impressed you waited until day 3 to share these. Well done you!!!!
