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.
