I started with a black base and then applied the glitters individually. Glitters were taken from LA Girl Splatter glitter in "Splash" and China Glaze "Point Me to the Party." I dabbed some glitter polish onto the back of a stamping plate and then used an orange stick to pick up and place the glitters. I ended up with a bit too much clear base and it ended up lumpy. This was only really noticeable in my pictures though not really in real life. Also the purple glitter was translucent and became quite dark over the black but otherwise I am happy with how this came out.
