Another year, another summer full of fantastic and bizarre beauty trends.

If you rocked glitter nipples to Glastonbury last year, then the latest fad will be right up your street: glitter bums.

Pioneers in all thing glittery The Gypsy Shrine was one of the first to make glitter nipples cool as the team host events, pop-ups and glitter parties as well as sell a shedload of glitter on their website.


While they’ll usually do your face or hair for a price, the new favourite is butts.

According to the Evening Standard Mia Kennington, an artist and part of the Gypsy Shrine team, said she wants the look wants to emulate the feeling of your bum getting covered with sand after sitting on a beach.

Which we can totally see.


It’s achieved by painting your bum with coloured paint or hair gel, applying the glitter, then setting the mix with a dash of hairspray.

You can either go for a chaotic glittery mess, or have different shades of glitter carefully applied into patterns.

Either way, you probably won’t want to sit down.
