Get pretty with Pixi #20! Sparkly Red Valentine’s Nails!

Posted by Lipglossiping On February - 10 - 2012

I think there’s an unwritten law that allows only this much red glitter on two days of the year: Christmas Day and Valentine’s Day.  Pixi nail polish in #20 is a dense red glitter suspended in a pink/red jelly base… it’s a proper pow-pow bling-fest on the nails and needs 2/3 coats to ensure even distribution.

If you don’t like the rough finish, you’re gonna need a couple of coats of topper to smooth out that much of a glitter party but those brighter flakes sing out loud in the sunshine!

Pixi Nail Polishes are priced at £10 each and available instore or online from Pixi Beauty

    Pretty! I’d totally wear it.

    And…I hope the only-this-much-glitter-on-Christmas-and-Valentine’s-Day never becomes a rule. I’d be breaking it all the time. 😉

    Beautiful colour and very pretty. Reminds me of a glitter red I got from Pop Beauty a few Christmas’s ago. Think it was actually called Xmas.

    What a yummy looking polish, how did you find it to remove? Was it as difficult as most glitter polishes?
