NOTD: Leighton Denny Graycious + Andrea Fulerton Striple & Sparkle Gloria

This bottle of Andrea Fulerton's Stripe and Sparkle had been sitting around in my polish drawer for quite some time, and I decided recently that it was time to break it out and get a bit creative.  I've done coloured tips before, usually with a normal nail polish with a normal width brush.  The thin, precise brush supplied with the Stripe and Sparkle is actually much better suited to coloured tips - it's thin enough that you can just stroke it across the tip of the nail using its entire width.

The other half of the bottle contains an ultra fine glitter in a complimentary shade, in this case a royal blue to match the mid blue of the polish.  To apply, you simply sprinkle atop wet polish - which is really just as messy as it sounds.  The effect is pretty, but also a bit of a pain to clean up.

Anyway - if you'd like to try a spot of nail art, you'll find Andrea Fulerton Stripe and Sparkle in Superdrug stores, where it will cost you a reasonable £4.99.  If you quite fancy the dark grey cream of Leighton Denny Graycious, you'll find it at the Urban Retreat Beautique, where it will cost £11.25.

Disclosure: Graycious is a PR sample.  I bought the Stripe and Sparkle myself.
