Marvelous Mermaid Fingers

Tremendously practical, this mermaid-approved mani!  That just tends to happen with glitter placement – here using Whimsical Ideas by Pam’s blue holo glitter bomb, Mermaid – but all the same, perhaps next time in the interest of not snagging my nails on absolutely everything I pass, I should scale back a bit?  Wah-waaaaahhhhhhhh. 🙂

Metallic Wreaths

Glitter placement takes centre stage in this pretty pastel manicure.  For the blissfully unaware, glitter placement is a fancy nail art term for fishing around in a bottle of polish until you find THE perfect assortment of glitter, which you then painstakingly apply to your nails in a manner not intended for anyone with places to go or things to do – you’ll never get there and you’ll never do them, because you’ll still be at home fighting to get one tiny speck of holographic glitter off the end of a tacky, lacquer-covered toothpick and onto your nails.  Frustrating!  But sometimes you’ve got plans in mind for that megawatt glitter bomb – here KB Shimmer’s Toast-ess With the Mostest – that don’t involve just brushing it onto your nails, like arranging all of those lovely rose-gold circles into a charming metallic wreath, perfect for adding a bit of sparkle and shine to your beauty-ful holiday decorating.

Butterflies in the Sun

Oh, dainty little glitter butterflies, you are terrifically cute, but you vex me so.  That I could clip your tiny paper wings, I WOULD, clip ’em good, because they are sticking up everywhere, even after two thick coats of Seche Vite, and snagging on ALL THE THINGS. This is seriously the prettiest, most annoying manicure ever!
