#31DC2014 - Day 17: Glitter aka...Sparkly honeycomb sparkles

Aaaaaaaaaah! I am posting before sunset! Yes, I classify that as a SUPER WIN! I do apologize for my sporadic posting lately but I’ve just been feeling a little out of it. I am getting back on track now though so YAY for me! Today we are hitting the Glitter Prompt of the #31DC2014. Such sparkle! Much amaze!

Day 17: Glitter

I didn’t have a stack load of ideas for this prompt but I did want to do glitter placement. I love the honeycomb style of hex glitter placement and have been dying to give it a try! So what better opportunity than the Challenge right?

I started by laying down 2 coats of Morgan Taylor Invitation Only on all my nails. When this was dry, I layed down zig zag chevron nail vinyls by Nail Vinyls over my index finger and pinky and layed down a thick coat of OPI Grape...Set...Match over it, pulling the vinyls off immediately. On my middle finger I layed down a coat of clear polish and placed loose hex glitter from Born Pretty Store on the topcoat. Lastly, I layed down some more vinyls on my ring finger and filled half in with OPI Grape...Set...Match and placed a few more loose glitters on the other half.

I love how the 2 polishes make each other pop! Yes, my honeycomb glitter placement is anything but perfect but I still like it! I just wish I can find some matte hex glitter because the glitter picks up the glare of my lamp immediately. And I just love me some matte glitter! Any advice??

Lots of mad love...
