HI MY LOVELY FOLLOWERS!! Finally a new post, I'm so excited to be posting again =) My lovely blogger friends have been on my ass lately to start posting again (as they should!) so I figured spring break was the perfect time for me to get cracking again! Today I have for you a super blinged out glitter manicure for St. Patrick's Day. I can't stop staring at my nails, I am so in love with this layering combo!
I started out with two coats of an old vintage Wet n Wild. The polish has no name, but a number (416A to be exact) and is a lovely medium green color with phenomenal golden shimmer running throughout. I will have to do a post on this color by itself one day, it is such a fab green. I know, a vintage green polish - so typical of me!
Then I layered two coats of Orly Here Comes Trouble on top, which is an awesome grass green glitter. You could probably get full coverage with this after about 4-5 coats, but I wanted to layer it over a green that was a bit darker to add some depth.
The pièce de résistance in this manicure is the one coat of Essence My Sparkling Acrobat that I added on top. I am obsessed with this polish!! I acquired this Euro-only color in a lovely swap with Caroline from Good Lack, Nail! and I have used it in at least 3 manicures so far, it is that awesome. My Sparkling Acrobat is a dual-ended polish that has a great black creme on one end and a gold glitter on the other. This is not your typical gold glitter, however. It is gold square and micro glitter in a clear base. SQUARE GLITTER! Is there anything in life better than square glitter? I think not.
Anyways, here's the glitterbomb! The layers are as follows:
- base coat
- 2 coats Wet n Wild 416A
- 2 coats Orly Here Comes trouble
- 1 coat Essence My Sparkling Acrobat
- top coat
The first two pics are natural light, the rest are artificial light indoors. As you can see, my photo skills are a bit rusty so please bear with me! Enjoy =)
