This is my first attempt at using them. I followed Sammy's method of using a toothpick dipped in clear polish and adding them to still tacky nail varnish.
The base is my new OPI Danke-Shiny Red from the Germany collection. This is two coats. Usual good OPI consistency, and a lovely bright, shiny red with a lovely rich shimmer to it.
I then added white and blue glequins to my ring finger. I attempted to do straight lines, but as you can see, they are only approximate. What Sammy does that I apparently can't is align the glequins the same way. I just couldn't see them! I think I need some kind of magnifying glass for doing my nails, because I could only see roundish glitter, not the detail of which were corners and which were edges! That's a bit worrying. Maybe I should actually put my glasses on next time!
Anyway, I still like the result. And the OPI is a hit with me too. I think it's a perfect autumnal colour - I have similar browns and oranges so I'm planning some kind of autumn leaves mani at some point.
