Weekly Nail - The Dainty Squid

Weekly Nail

Supplies used...
Revlon Bare Bones
Deborah Lippmann Happy Birthday
Wet N Wild Wet Cement
Nail stickers (blogged about here // bought from here)
Seche Vite as a top coat

Last week I realized for all the polishes I have the ones that go untouched the longest are always the glitters. That stinks because I have some really, really pretty glitter polishes. I tend to use them when I'm feeling lazy, I'll just slop some sparkles on top of a plain color and call it a day. From now on I want to make an effort to incorporate some glitter polishes into my designs more often, use them as an accent instead of relying on them to do all the work.
After doing these ones I'm feeling pretty inspired to work with glitter some more. I look over at my polish rack and know I'm going to have a hard time choosing which ignored sparkly polish to use next.

Hope you're having a lovely weekend!
xoxo

  9. Loooove everything in this post. Your nails are super pretty and the color/pattern of the dress is gorgeous. It is a dress right? I'd love to have something like that in my closet, I'm kind of a sucker for anything blue/gray/with stripes... :)

  16. Love it! I usually put a little line of glitter on the top of my nails, but I like how you put it at the bottom. Great job, by the way. I usually end up with one okay-looking hand and one dreadful one. Ah.
