NOTD: Funky Glitter Tips


It's been a while since I've posted a NOTD (nail of the day) or anything related to nails really, but today I have a nail-art look for you guys! I was inspired by ThePoshPolish who did a funky french glitter manicure (you can have a look at her post here). I loved this idea so much that I wanted to give it a try. It's a great way to use glitter without it being too much and I love nail art that I can easily do on my right hand (using my non-dominant left hand).
Definitely check out her blog, she has gorgeous nails, posts really nice pictures and had great nail art ideas!

Here are my pictures:

I used China Glaze - Below Deck from the Anchors Away collection. This was limited edition but I'm sure you could find a dupe for it. It's very similar to OPI - Metro Chic, Essie - Merino Cool or Catrice - From Dusk To Dawn. The glitter I used is OPI - Show It And Glow It, from the Burlesque collection. 

I don't like it as much as I liked her combination. She used Essie - Master Plan and OPI - Mad As A Hatter (which I wish I owned :( !! ), but any combination you like is possible. 
Overall, I don't think this came out too bad for a first try.

Hope you like it too and until next time!

  1. And it's really easy too! :)

  2. I love ChG Below Deck! I had Channelesque, but ended up selling it because Below Deck suits my skintone way more!

    And I love your combination and your nails look nice :) I wish I had such nails :)

  3. Thank you! My nails aren't very strong tho. This is about as long as they'll grow. But that's ok since they really start annoying me when they get a little too long :). So much easier to type with short nails!

  4. WOW I adore your nails here! Thanks for following my blog - now following yours! :)

    Nic x

  5. Between you and Liloo, you are both making me so jealous of your lovely nails.
    my nails are awful and never want to grow, as soon as they get just over my fingertips they snap off :-(
    I love the dripping icicle effect, very stylish x

  6. @ Strawberry Blonde: Thank you, I love easy nail art! Especially with glitter.

    @ Lori: Thanks! Mine don't grow much longer than this and I'd like them to be a little more square. Check out, I adore her nails! Have you tried Herome's Extra Strong nail hardener?

  7. I love this nail design !!Are so pretty :X
