so i went with deborah lippmann across the universe, one of my only glitters:

it's one of those "you have to be there" colors; it can look really dark sometimes, and really really vibrant and sparkly other times.

Yes, Azure was the top coat. I wish it showed up in photos. It looks snazzy in the sun with the little holo flecks.

You guys with the glitter toes are brave. I can't imagine trying to remove that! I've still got Nouvelle Vague--maybe I should add a thin top coat of Azure!

Jess-love your Wonder Woman nails.

I'm loving everyone's glitters! bluedawg that DL is one of my favourite polishes.

Here are most of my glitters.

Image

I ruled out my favourites because I have a tonne of new / hardly used polishes. These are my favourite / most used glitters!

Image

I decided on China Glaze Liquid Crystal over the silver Barry M foil for my fingers...

Image

...and Wet 'n Wild Blue Wants To Be a Millionaire for my toes. It's a super sheer polish so I put it over Orly Blue Collar. I'm super surprised about how much I like this, I'll definitely be putting this combo on my fingers soon.

I stared at my glitters forever before I figured out what to do. Turns out lots of my barely used polishes are red, white and blue, so I did a disaster version of that. Nothing like Jessi's pretty one!

On like the 9th coat, it got crazy and I hated it, but today I made peace with it because glitter.

Can we do Barbie pink next week?

I've got an entire shelf of pink (why?!) and almost never wear the full on girly girl unicorn and cotton candy pink colors.

Ooooo - I've just realised I'm at the hairdressers tomorrow. Sitting in there for several hours I always have time to paint my nails (which have been bare for about a week due to lack of time). So late as it may be I'll be joining in on the glitter!

I love all the photos.

Ooh sparkles! I'm going to do Zoya Reva and Indigo for my red and blue and I bought a white wet n wild yesterday.

mbm, that is INSANE and gorgeous. I'd have more but I'm so lazy I hate taking glitter off, even if I have been putting on cotton balls and foil wrapping to remove.

Ooh, andi_vert! Your blue glitter looks awesome.

Here's my glitter nails. I took this picture before I cleaned them up (impatient!). In order, it's a dark blue shimmery e.l.f. polish, then Orly Aqua Pixel sponged on the tips, then a multicolor glitter topcoat and that Fergie star one. I was going for fireworks-ish? It looks better in person.
Image

I've never kept that Fergie one on for any length of time before and some of the tips of the stars are poking up and it's making me craaaaazy.

Oh, and my (blurry) toes for good measure. I had a pedicure with Zoya Nyx a while ago and it was looking kind of tired, so I slapped some glitter on top. China Glaze Full Spectrum and the same multicolor one I used on my fingernails.

Here are my nails for the week:

Image

Image

AMERICAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA

I believe the Barry M is just called 'Teal Glitter', the China Glaze is 'Love, Marilyn', y'all know Fergie's stars i'm sure, and the blue on my thumb is the ORLY FX. As you can tell, my topcoat shrunk shiitake up and I also lost half of a pinkie today, less than 24 hours after painting, so I quickly peeled it off. I think i'm just going to cut my nails and put on some clear instead of trying for round three.

Just a reminder: next week is 'off week' so people can have a nekkid nail week or do their own thing. So we'll start up again on the 14th!

Pinko, I am in love with your dark blue and glitter combo! And mbm, that china glaze is awesome as well. For my off week I might revisit a polish that doesn't get a lot of play. I'm teaching a camp next week and don't want to do anything too crazy so the rich moms don't get turned off. (As if the tattoos and lip ring don't already do that.)
