glitter in the air + extra glitter!

Good evening! Or prevening, for all my Big Bang Theory fans out there.

Today I'll be showing you a random mani I wore about a week and a half ago. 


Please excuse the little purple hearts on these photos, but I'm sure you'll find them less offensive than what was underneath... I had a booboo. And it was super painful and made it hard for me to pose my hand. I actually had naked nails for a few days because I couldn't bend my thumb enough to paint them! Haha!


I wanted something dainty for my first mani after having sad naked nails, and I decided I wanted to finally wear Deborah Lippmann's Glitter In The Air.
I had yet to wear it because I couldn't decide what color to wear underneath!
But it struck me to use Color Club Secret Rendezvous, a sheer lavender color that you can use several coats of to make it opaque, or wear just 2 coats like I did for a jelly finish.

I really liked the combo! But I got tired of it after a few days so I added some more glitter.


Not my best effort.
I filled in one side with Nicole by OPI - One Less Lonely Glitter, and added a stripe using Milani - Purple Outline, from their nail art collection.


Meh. I think liked it better before the added glitters.
Hey, at least I found a nice way to wear Glitter In The Air!

    I know it's just a boo boo and not an illness, but if you ask I'm sure someone will sing you soft kitty.
