12/16/11 - I Heart Glitter

I performed in a show last Friday (the 16th). The show mentioned in the last post - a group of friends and I performed Mama Who Bore me. So in the hour and a half between when school ended and I had to be at the theatre, I did this to my nails. This was something I'd been planning for at least a week. I loved the glittery tips from the last mani, and one of the blogs I follow did etched out hearts. I was going to link to her blog, but I can't remember who it was and even though I've gone back two months in my followed archives, I can't find it. :( If anyone knows who it is, I'm more than happy to give credit where credit is due. [ETA: I found it! Copy That, Copy Cat is the main source of inspiration for this look. :)
Anyway, so it's a base layer of Sally Hansen - Diamonds, then (on every nail but the thumb), a sponged layer of Nabi - Silver, then sponged on the tips, one of my new favourites, Wet 'n' Wild - Diamond in the Rough. The ring finger has a heard drawn with Migi Nail Art Pen - white, and the thumb has a heart etched out with a tooth pick.
I actually really like these nails. The only problem is that they looked beautiful right up until I changed into my costume, at which point they weren't actually quite dry and the tips got all bunched. I did my best to smooth it out and cover it up, but you can still see some premature tip wear. Even still, I really like how it looks. :)

What do you think? :)
