Iridescent Glequins with Orly Au Champagne

Hi guys!  Just a quickie for you today, and only one photo since all my photos of this mani were complete rubbish.  I did these nails a few weeks back after seeing some EPIC glitter mosaics on Polish All the Nails.  Seriously, if you don't follow her already, you need to.

I did my nails with a base of Orly Au Champagne and then proceeded to stick these loose glequins on one by one.  BTW, I totally just learned that people are calling these things glequins since Sammy from The Nailasaurus dubbed them some combination of glitter and sequins.  I think I'm a bit late on the pick up of that word! Anyway, I top coated with Zoya Armor, which is apparently bubble central, argh!!! The bubbles were not really visible in real life, but of course photos magnify all that.  Anyway, I want to get some smaller glequins and do more of these manis... they really appeal to my gaudy side!


  1. Awesome nails... Great and patience job!
    I'm following Polish all the nails. Thanks for sharing! ;-)

  2. Beautiful! I want to try this as well :)

  3. Pretty! I find top coat on glequins always bubbles, no matter what you do.

  4. Oh man, you did so awesome! Thanks so much for the shout-out too :D:D:D:D:D:D
