Triangles and star glitter nails AKA 80s leggings nail art!

Hey friends! Today I have some quick nails I did a couple days ago to show y'all.

This mani started with a base of Zoya Kimber (pink) and Orly High on Hope. Both of these colors are stunning! I've had Kimber forever and never used it (SHAME) but I just got High on Hope, and when I was looking for a color to pair with it I really liked the way the shimmery pink of Kimber complimented the pretty pink shimmer in it. I used two coats of HoH and three of Kimber and they both had lovely formulas.

I used my small detailing brush to freehand the triangle pattern on my pointer and pinkie fingers.

On my other fingers I made a pattern out of loose star glitter and silver hex glitter, both from Born Pretty Store. I attached the glitter on top of the wet polish and then sealed everything in with Seche Vite.

My cousin said these looked like 80s leggings and I had to agree with her! Just another design for the books that falls under the LARGE category of "accidentally 80s" haha. These were pretty easy to do but they were really eye-catching and fun to wear, and I LOVE these colors together! What do y'all think?

Some of the products in this post were provided for review.
