Glitter Bomb Mani

Hey everyone! I’ve been sick in bed the past few days so my nails haven’t been seeing that much action lately. It’s just been a whole mess of sneezing, tissues, and constant napping.

Anyway, today I have a look I wore quite a few weeks ago.
I call this, “The Glitter Bomb”.  And no, this has nothing to do with the glitter bombs you can send to your enemies lol. Although this mani did teach me that cleaning up glitter is a bi^*%.

So, how did I come up with this? Indecision, actually. Although I must have 300 polishes sitting in my stash, on one day in particular, I decided that I didn’t feel like wearing any of the polishes in my collection. Then a random idea sparked into my head. Why not just use glitter?

For this mani, I first started with a black base coat. As soon as the base coat was painted (very wet) I poured loose glitter (from the Born Pretty Store) onto my nails, using three different colored glitters. In sections where the glitter did not stick as well, I simple added a drop of clear topcoat and added more glitter as necessary. When the entire nail was dry, I added 2 coats of top coat (or the finish would have been more grainy then you see here) And Voila! A mani Ke$ha would be proud of!
