Glitter placement lead lighting with The Don Deeva collection Lost my marbles "Floral glitter lighting"


Press samples

Good day darlings. I know you really loved my Christmas glitter placement and I also enjoyed wearing it so much. That's why I decided to make another design with glitter placement. And because it was not time consuming enough, I combined it with individual glitter lead lighting. I call it glitter lighting for short, omg... did I just invent new nail art technique??? And I just had to add some stamping on top, I'm a real stampaholic after all. For lead lighting I used outstanding neon jellies from The Don Deeva collection called Lost my marbles. They also water marble and have shimmer inside, wow. Before I used OPI tints for lead lighting and it was a pain, because as top coats they are quite sticky and if you are not quick enough tend to form tiny filaments, sort of like melted cheese. I hated it. There is no such problem with Lost my marbles, as they glide right on and covered each glitter effortlessly, I was super impressed. It was such a pleasure to lead light with them. Take a look at my video tutorial to learn more about "glitter lighting".
