Blue and Glitsy

I had a formal this past weekend, and was planning to wear a blue ombre dress. Today also happens to be the ‘blue’ theme day in the GOT Crumpet Challenge! As it happens, some of my favorite blue polishes (and the ones that matched my dress best) were all over a year old.

I don’t even know how to describe this manicure other than AWESOME. I made a teal-to-blue ombre with two metallic polishes, and then stamped over them with black using Bundle Monster plate 301. Despite the myriad of bubbles on my nails (grrrr destroyed from that darn gel polish!) the end product looks awesome!

I recently started blog-stalking the queen of glitter placement: Polish All The Nails. Her patience and way with color is awe-inspiring. If you like all things shiny, check out her blog. Anyway…I recently received a set of 12 pots of hexagonal nail glitters to review from the Born Pretty Store, and decided I wanted to create a glitter ombre accent! So I set about carefully placing each glitter.

Even I am impressed. IT IS SO SPARKLY! I love the almost holographic sheen to the teal, and the mysteriousness of the dark blue. This nail took almost 20 minutes, I don’t know how she does it! I think you’ll be seeing quite a few more glitter placement accents in the near future…

What’s more, the Born Pretty Store accidentally sent me an extra set of 12 glitter pots! (Well, I had requested something else but they sent two of these instead) so one of YOU lovely readers gets to take home a set of 12! Since this isn’t polish, the giveaway is open internationally. I’ll be setting it up and running it this weekend, so check back in two days!
