black w/ holo glitters


I started with a black matte base, I sponged on a silver, added the Claire's Hollywood multi-sized holographic glitter and then added a few larger hexagon holographic glitter pieces. I took these photos before a final coat of top coat, and I definitely needed 2 coats of TC.

I am still into the matte black look... I have 2 more black matte manis in mind for the rest of the week. I like the shape of the glitter area, it's like a swoop starting at the far right of my cuticles then all along my cuticles to the tip pf my nails. This was very easy to do on my non-dominant hand which was a plus today as I was in a rush.

also; Google blogger must be updating or something.... I tried to up-date my blog roll and do a bunch of other bloggy things and nothing was working. I quit for today - but hopefully everything will be back to normal. I love you Google blog-spot - get well soon ♥



I sponged on some silver polish along the sides of my nails

then added just 1 coat of Claire's Hollywood, and quickly set a few holographic hexagon glitters randomly on my nails.

Ooooh, I really like the matte with the sparkles and even the silver alone. I still have to get used to applying glitter...had a "mani fail" yesterday!

This looks simple but striking- i'm definitely tempted to go buy some loose glitters to incorporate into manis!

I really like this.
It reminds me of that outfit that Cher wears. The black leather bodysuit with the cutouts and sequins and the thong.
The one that she can still wear even though she's like 100 years old or something.
Damn Cher.
