31DC2013 Day 17 - Glitter

For day 17 of the 31 Day Nail Challenge, a glitter manicure, I knew I wanted to play with some of my loose glitter. I got this hex glitter a while ago and thought it would be fun for nail art when I wanted something different from the standard hex glitter. For some reason it has stood unused... until now that is...

For this manicure I started out with a base of Dazzle Dry Glam'matazz, a gorgeous shimmery blue that I'll show you swatches of very soon! When it was dry, I taped off the sides and painted the center strip using Dazzle Dry Mythic Teal. Working as quickly as I could, I added diamond shaped glitter. This is seriously the one time that I wish a top coat would dry just a little bit slower, but the Dazzle Dry top coat is super fast drying!...

I got this holographic diamond glitter from The Born Pretty Store. For some reason it was very clumpy and difficult to separate. I had to struggle to isolate individual pieces of glitter, which really drove me nuts, but in the end it was worth the effort...

This shows the gorgeous holographic effect a bit better. Still doesn't quite capture how sparkly and bling-y this manicure really is...

I'd love to know what you think of this manicure!

Thanks for looking!
