31 Day Nail Art Challenge - Day 17: Glitter

Hope everyone had a great week and that you're as happy it's the weekend as I am ;) I feel like whenever I have a short work week, I'm even busier than normal trying to cram as much as possible into my day. I'm tired!

I really had no clue what to do for tonight's look. Should I go with a classic glitter gradient (something I've done before) or stray a bit and try something more complex? In the end, I knew I wouldn't be satisfied if I went with a design I've already done. I'm going to keep this post short because I'm so exhausted, but I wanted to note that the inspiration for tonight's glitter mani came from one of the nails Meghan did for her tribal print mani on Tuesday (found here!). I absolutely loved the design that she did on her ring finger and knew I had to recreate it...I just didn't realize it would be so soon that I recreated it! 

I used several coats, but the deep teal base color is Zoya's Cynthia, and the glitter is China Glaze's I Herd That (middle finger) and I'm Not Lion. Because these two glitters are so fine, they're fairly easy to work with in nail art, though I wasn't able to add the level of detail I was hoping to achieve when I decided to go with this design. 
I'm not overly happy with how my photos came out for this one, but I think they still convey the feel of this mani fairly well. What do you think of this look? I'm hoping to get a lot of nail artin' done this weekend as well as have a giveaway up tomorrow! Stay tuned ;) 
Happy Polishing :)


  1. This is so pretty! I love the glitter against the black, and the design looks really cool! :)

  2. Wow! So elegant! Beautiful design!

  3. Stunning! Glitters are perfect for these sort of peek-a-boo style :D I love the nail art, and indeed both you and Meghan are great inspirations! :) Love how the blogging world gives and takes this way! Inspired & Inspire! ;)
