This was really fun, but didn't last long

I found a bottle of long and irregularly shaped glitter at a specialty shop and it gave me an idea for a manicure.

1.  Brush your nail with a thick coat of clear polish
2.  Immediately dunk your nail into a bowl filled with glitter
3.  No need for a top coat if you're going for the 3d effect above

I really like the way it looks, but it's not a very manageable manicure.  The glitter kept getting caught on things like when I ran my fingers through my hair, etc.  But still fun for a night out!

Completely random

I did this one awhile back and decided not to post it because I thought it was a little too weird.  Then I went through my photo archives and sort of fell in love with it.  It's funny how that happens, huh?

I especially like my pinky finger.

Stamping fun

I used Revlon - Minted, Elf - Fair Pink, and OPI - Did It On 'Em for the base and then stamp RA-107.

My kind of gradient

If you've read my last two posts you know I'm currently obsessed with my NailVenturous lacquers.  Below is a shot of Floam, which I have been lusting after for quite some time.  I love the way it looks on my nails. 
Because I'm also really into the very similar Orange You Unique (click the link to see it action), I decided to do a gradient with both.  I really like the way it turned out! 

What do you think?  Are you a fan or do you prefer them one at a time?

Humble Bee mani

I'm so obsessed with my NailVenturous Lacquers right now.  NailVenturous is an artisan lacquer maker and her polishes sell out on Etsy as soon as they're listed.  Literally in minutes.  She opened up shop once more last week and I was able to nab a bottle of Floam, Humble Bee (seen above), and Robin Laid an Egg.  I'll try to swatch 'em for ya tomorrow.
