Yes, you’re not blind. Lip gloss nails. After forgetting to bring nail polish on a recent trip, I decided to use some lip gloss I had left. Specifically, an old, unopened bottle of L’Oreal Glam Shine in Gold Holographic.
And while I know that it’s more than likely already past its expiry date, as I said before it was unopened, and didn’t have a funky smell or color at all. And since I planned to use it on my nails, not my lips, I thought the chance of contracting any poisonous substance it had was rather low. So I went ahead and painted my nails. Vóila!
The color is very vibrant for my beige / golden skin. It’s a nice reddish-pink that isn’t the least big garish, even with the glitter. All in all, it’s a gorgeous color, and I can’t wait to try it out on my lips, since it doesn’t seem infected with bacteria or whatnot (But still, keep away from old products).
For this look or a lip gloss nail one, I simply painted the color on my nails, and waved it around for a bit to dry. To make sure, I dusted a translucent powder over it, slightly mattifying it, but it still had tons of shine and glitter. So I think this look could work quite well. 😉
