Creative musings in bright colors

Sometimes, I get an urge to use ALL THE GLITTER POLISH. Presenting, gold and blue glitter. Crossing. And dots. But mostly crossing.

If you are going to try something like this, I recommend a LOT of scotch tape. Cleaning glitter off your cuticles is NOT fun, but I am proud to say this time I didn’t have to!

This started as a blue-to-gold gradient, covered with thin bands of striping tape, and then a gold-to-blue gradient in the opposite direction. Pretty straight forward actually, if a bit um…glitter heavy. I ended up needing two thick coats of top coat and it STILL wasn’t 100% smooth!

  1. OK you can come back to Australia to do my nails again this is ubercool! I love it 🙂

  2. That is so pretty! One tip I read somewhere for helping to get a smooth finish on glitters; apply a matte topcoat first and then a layer or two of your normal topcoat 🙂 xxx

  3. This. Freaking. ROCKS. 😀
