Manicure Monday: GLITTER!

Since I didn't have to work today, I had a lot more extra time and I just felt like playing with some nail polish.  I've really been enjoying playing with my glitter polishes lately and I like that if I don't want to wear the manicure for a long time (because the texture of glitter can annoy me), I can peel it right off when I use the Elmer's glue base coat.  That's what I did today!

After that glue base coat dried, I applied two coats of Milani's Red Sparkle.  Just like the Gold Glitz of this same brand that I used last week, this bottle was thick, goopy, and hard to work with.  But so much pretties!

After that, I applied a top coat of New York Color Grand Central Station but that glitter just soaked up top coat and was still gritty and rough so I added another coat.  After all those layers, this polish didn't even last through the day but I didn't really expect it to either.  I just enjoyed spending a few hours looking at the pretty glitter!  And the book nerd in me loved that the red glitter with specks of gold reminded me of Smaug's belly from The Hobbit.
