Baby you're a FIREWORK...

Happy 5th November everyone!  I have decided to embrace bonfire night and go for some firework themed nails!

First off, I painted my nails with a basecoat of glitter, I used a different colour on each nail:

Left Hand:
Thumb: YCC Nail Enamel 112 (Purple Glitter)
Index Finger: Barry M Silver Multi Glitter
Middle Finger:  Barry M Red Glitter
Ring Finger: w7 Green and Blue Glitter
Little Finger: Nubar Spark
Right Hand:
Thumb: YCC Nail Enamel 114 (Silver Holo Glitter in Dark Base) 

Index Finger: China Glaze Electrify
Middle Finger:  YCC Nail Enamel 108 (Pink Glitter)
Ring Finger:  Angelica Blue Glitter
Little Finger: YCC Nail Enamel 117 (Gold Glitter)

I put a top coat on and then once that was totally dry I used striping tape to make the firework patterns on my nails.  I then used the black Barry M magnetic polish as a top coat, as I thought it would give more of a varied "sky" colour than a solid black (it doesn't show up that great in the photos though).  Then, a diamante in each corner and topped off with a coat of the w7 multi-colour glitter (which I originally bought thinking it would be a good Rainbow Connection dupe, but it's just not thick enough, but ace for just a thin splatter of glitter).  Ta daaa!
