Glitter Me Stupid

Whoops. I always forget to take pictures of my nailswhen I'm done polishing them, and when I finally think of it, something has chipped. Badly. But with a title like Glitter Me Stupid, I figured it was high time for some more glitter. I apologize that I don't have any photos of all the steps, I'm not quite that savvy yet, I guess. Rather than deal with trying to arrange the pictures on Blogger, which has always fought back, I've uploaded the pictures to Photobucket and I'm going to insert them as a slideshow at the end of the post. After applying my base coat I sponged the tips with Finger Paints Easel Come, Easel Go, using a cut up makeup sponge, to create a gradient, so that any bald spots in the glitter wouldn't be noticeable. Then I mixed Fantasy Makers Confetti in Glitz with Maybelline Express Finish base/top coat on a piece of paper and sponged that on over the silver, again trying to create a gradient. Just because it has a similar holographic glitter in it, I added a coat of Claire's nail polish in Hollywood. A coat of clear polish to keep any stray bits of glitter from getting into my top coat, and a coat of China Glaze Fast Forward top coat. I considered adding rhinestones, but I decided that would be a bit too much, and I wanted the glitter to get the attention it deserves. The Fantasy Makers Confetti glitter I purchased at Shoppers Drug Mart around Halloween, it says it's by the makers of Wet n' Wild, and I believe it cost me around 5$ for the 0.15 oz jar. It's an amazing holographic silver, blows my mind just looking at it, I'm so glad I bought it. The size of the glitter particles are a little larger than MAC Reflects glitters.
