NAILED IT!

If you’re female and you have a pulse, likelihood is you like a little sparkle. We’re on a mission to keep our holiday bottles of bling current. Most of these colors were released last year around the holidays but we refuse to toss them out. Instead we’re pairing them with softer shades for Springtime. Applying glitter or gold over a plain polish is nothing new but it definitely amps up the fancy factor. Do it on one nail, do it on all your nails. Either way, these are our new favorite combos.

The turquoise polish in the top photo was “Wednesday” by Zoya and the rose color in the bottom is “Petal Pusher” from Sally Hansen. Also– in case you missed it, here’s the tutorial on how to get a good glitter fade.

CATCH A FALLING STAR…

Glitter is such a fun way to add a little sparkle to your look. But any time you’re sprinkling loose glitter, it’s going to get a little messy. We’ve all tried wiping it off with a makeup wipe but there’s a more effective way to quickly grab it off with tape. Here’s how:

  1. Tear off a piece of tape long enough to wrap around your index finger then wrap it around the tip with the sticky side facing out.
  2. Firmly press the tape over any fallen glitter and lift it off.

That’s it! If you remember my nighttime makeup sequence post, you would have started with your eye makeup before your foundation. But if you already have foundation on, the tape shouldn’t pull off too much of it, unless it was a really messy clean-up job in which case you might have to touch up your foundation.

And because I know you’re going to ask, I used Make Up For Ever Aqua Cream in Intense Blue all over the lid (Maybelline Color Tattoo Metal in Electric Blue is gorgeous too) then sprinkled NYX Loose Blue Glitter on top of it.
