sparkle and such

i've been terrible so far this year. I have failed to take one picture of wonderfully manicured nails to share. for new year's i did decide to go with the glitter, but not over the top, as such. more important to me this year was to match the nail polish colour to the colour of my shirt. and i amazingly managed to do it. OPI's Blue My Mind matched perfectly! i couldnt believe it. i did a french tip in the blue with a silver fine grain glitter stripe underneath. i coated the whole nail afterwards with a subtle glitter to give it a little bit more interest. wish i had a pic. unfortunatly, i did them in a rush and used a little too much polish so they chipped very quickly. but lesson learned: apply thin coats of polish for a more lawsting manicure!

currently my nails are sporting a super blinged out look. i have a pale pink base coat on the bottom (i forget the specific colour, but it is from sally hanson's extreme wear) and scrapbooking glitter on the top. in person they look awesome. i can't capture the brilliance in the photos. and they also looked way better when i first did them. erg! i gotta stop forgetting about my camera! anyway i'll post the pic regardless:

i really wish i had pink glitter to use on my nails. the silver is great, but i think with the subtle base coat i chose, pink glitter would go together much better. anyone know where i can get some?

anyway, i think it's about time i try my hand at water marbling again... wonder what i'll comee up with this time...
