I've been super into Tumblr lately and I've been seeing some people do fabulous things with a glittery base and solid patterns atop it. I just had to try it out myself after seeing what Whitney at Dressed Up Nails and Stephanie at Sincerely Stephanie have done recently. By the way, I kinda hate you Whitney, you're just too good and it makes me incredibly jealous!
I loved the idea of using Color Club glitter polishes from Christmas last year so I started off with two coats of Sugarplum Fairy and then just painted half my nail with Beyond the Mistletoe. Both are completely awesome and sparkly micro holo glitter, the former slightly purple-toned, the latter slightly green. I wish I could do the glitter justice, it just doesn't come off in photos! Once dry, I dotted on Wet'n'Wild On A Trip, Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, Nina Ultra Pro Blu Blaze and Nicole by OPI "Baby" Blue. So many polishes! But look, sparkly!
The Verdict: Love how the sparkly mixes with the creme polishes, almost like stepping stones on a river of glitter. That's for me, that's for sure. Fits with the gradients I've been obsessed with lately too. Yay sparkly! Man, I finish a lot of posts like that. But I like glitter. So yay!
