I wasn't so impressed by the multi-colored nails here, but more the use of glitter. Needless to say, when I pinned this picture, I didn't think I would be on the hunt for a good glitter nail polish. But... it happened, and I was.
I just HAD to get out of the house today. With a sick dog and a sick boyfriend, I was beginning to feel claustrophobic. The house was a mess, and I know I'm not going to get sick because I was the one who passed the illness along, but all the germs were beginning to get to me. My purpose for leaving to stock up on cleaning supplies, of course.
But then I decided to rent a Redbox movie, which lead me to Walgreens, and then I had to go inside to see if there were any good deals and I spotted the PERFECT nailpolish for this look.
Fergie has teamed up with Wet n' Wild for her own line. I don't really use Wet n' Wild's makeup products, but I had heard good things about their nailpolish, and since this was just glitter, it was a go! Plus, it was only $3.49, so I really couldn't pass it up. I needed something with large sequin-y type glitter. This one is great because it has a variety of types of glitter unlike the above picture. I especially like the colors... they are a little more pastel, like a rose gold shade (the name of the color is Flossy Flossy). I thought they would look perfect with one of my new Julep shades, "Jodie".
So apparently, I'm not good at taking photographs lately, because this picture does NOT do my nails justice. The Julep shade is pretty accurate here, but you can't really see all of the different glitters, they kind of look black. I think I might put another layer of the glitter on my ring finger. I'm afraid of adding too many layers and making it super thick, which it is starting to get there.
Does anyone have any tips on achieving this look? I'm not a nail artist by any means. Also, all of the pictures I see out there of photographed nails, what is the trick to make them look so much better than my picture?
