Happy Hands - Motherboy

Hey guys! Sorry for the lack of posting this week. The end of the semester and the holidays are just so busy!
Good news, I did great in school, and now I'm off for a few weeks of relaxing and hopefully lots of nail painting.

A couple of weeks ago, I was feeling like wearing some pastel colors. With glitter, of course. Pastel glitter!

Happy Hands - Motherboy
This interesting glitter is a nice polish from the indie brand Happy Hands.
The lovely Sarah from Chalkboard Nails sent me a mini of this polish because I loved it so much when she swatched it.

I couldn't decide what I wanted to wear it over so I went with three colors. That's always the best solution. If you can't pick... Pick them all.

The purple is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear - Lacey Lilac.
The green is China Glaze - Re-fresh Mint
The pink is China Glaze - Something Sweet.

This is just one coat of glitter, it's totally packed! 

Pastel glitters are really interesting. They don't sparkle, so a lot of people saw my nails and didn't realize that it was a glitter topcoat. I got a lot of questions about these nails. Haha. But of course I'm always happy to chat about my nails!

These nails were probably more appropriate for spring than fall/winter... But I don't care! The heart wants what the heart wants! :)


  1. Very cute! I wear pastels year-round.

  2. So cute! I love pastels and the glitter is perfect :D

  3. This is a great polish, and I've had my eye on it for awhile. I would also wear pastels in the fall/winter, or even the summer. I'm not too big into seasonal colours.

  4. Wow that glitter is so nice!! I think I will just keep using my OPI rainbow connection in a jelly sandwich to save money haha :D

  5. Pretty colors- very fresh! The whole Arrested Development collection from Happy Hands is awesome!

  6. This is an awesome glitter!! I love how it looks layered over the pastels!
