Nails - Dazzle Dust

Years ago, I had a thing for collecting those little Barry M Dazzle Dust pots. I accumulated quite a collection, some of which have been binned over the years, but I kept some of my favourites. Which is a good thing as they're great used on nails!

I simply painted my nails (two coats) with Boots 17 Lasting Fix in Midnight Sapphire. Whilst the polish was still wet, I used the end of a spoon to put a small amount of Dazzle Dust just under the nail and then blew upwards onto the nail. This leaves a lovely shimmery gradient effect on the nail. I then applied a good top coat to seal and cleaned up a bit around the edges using a cotton bud.

Happy Friday everyone! I am glad it's nearly the weekend, despite having had a short working week. Got a weekend of wedding dress appointments (not for me, for my bestie!) ahead of me :)


  1. Ohh this looks awesome! I'm sure I've still got a few of those dazzle dust pots kicking around at my parents' house... (back from when I was about 13 and loved looking like a walking disco ball haha) might have to dig them out when I'm next home!
