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.

Here’s how to get this Robin’s Egg mani…

  • Paint the base coat with any pastel polish. Here I used THIS ONE for the blue.
  • And top it off with THIS GLITTERY GOODNESS by Deborah Lippman. I’ve never been able to find a glitter polish quite like this one. It’s got several sizes of glitter in one bottle which is what give it the robin’s egg look.

That’s it! Sweet and simple.

HIGHLIGHT

There’s nothing prettier than an understated gold-highlighted face! Especially at a New Year’s Eve party… And because gold accents were found all over the Spring runways, we can carry this look into the upcoming months. The trick to walking the fine line before it becomes too obvious is to (more…)
