Nude Nails w/ dipped Glitter Tips

I’m in the throes of the BlogHer Conference and having a blast! So much so that I forgot to post today {which is the first time in the history of this blog that I actually FORGOT to post}.

I’m happy to say my obligatory BlogHerness is complete and now I just get to enjoy the rest of my trip and party it up. I can’t wait to meet you all. Please come up to me and say hi 😉


martha stewart glitter glue set

I randomly spied this amazing Martha Stewart glitter glue set months ago in a stationery store and had to have it. Imagine the possibilities! And they’ve been sitting in my craft closet ever since. But after my nail inspiration post last week, I thought why not try it out on my nails. So I did. And it totally worked. I used Sally Hansen Cafe Au Lait as a base coat then two coats of glitter glue and two coats of Chanel Laque Brilliance Extreme and they’re holding up like a charm.

    I tried to do this with glitter polish, but it took about 6 coats to get the effect I was going for. Definitely let us know how the glitter glue holds up. I bet it’s a lot easier to remove than glitter poslish too.

    sorry to say, but I think that looks just plain stupid…appears as though a child had played around in glue and somehow dipped their fingers into glitter
    waste of time, and waste of money
    disappointment

    That is great and seems easy enough. I would also imagine that it would be a lot easier to remove than real glitter polosh. Thumbs up
