Nails of the Day

Here’s what I’m currently sporting on my nails:

The pink color is Wet n Wild Tickled Pink and the green color is my Frankenpolish that I made here.

The gold glitter I used is from Sally Girl, available at Sally Beauty Supply.  You know how sometimes glitter polish is in a really thick clear base and it seems like you can’t get the glitter coverage that you want on your nails without applying a bunch of really thick coats?  Well, there’s a way around that.

For this look, I first waited until my pink and green polish was mostly dry.  Then I brushed the gold glitter polish onto a makeup sponge like this:

Then I waited just a few seconds so that the clear base was mostly absorbed into the sponge, but still wet.  Then I dabbed the sponge with the glitter directly onto my nail.  This technique works like a charm!  I learned this from jessface90 on youtube.  Check out her tutorial on this.

I then applied the NYC You Matte Me Crazy top coat.  I love how the glitter looks with the matte top coat!  The glitter is still shiny, but in more of a frosted glass sort of way.
