Glitter glitter everywhere!

Thats it!! I've jumped into the glitter bandwagon.
Ever since glitter polishes started appearing on blogs I've been drooling over them.
But then I also read that they were a pain to take out, which stopped me from trying them.
Also as I was packing for my rafting trip, I realised I wouldnt get time to polish my nails on the trip and I didnt wanna lug weight with me as I knew we'd have to carry our bags to the camp at the riverside.
So I had to put on a mani that wud last me atleast 5-6 days. This is my "eureka".
 Lasted me all of 6 days of which 4 days were spent rafting atleast 2-3 hours each day. 


Base: Colorbar exclusive 18
Icing:  Epic Winning
WetnWild: Party of five
 
I had won the glitters from Canadian Nail Fanatic in her giveaway last year


I have applied the Icing glitter halfway down the nail and WnW Party of Five 1/3 rd way to the tip as I attempted a possible gradient effect.
Party of Five is a good dupe for Deborah Lippmann's gorgeous Happy Birthday.

Verdict: I would strongly recommend glitters to anyone who doesnt like to change their polishes often or to those who wanna save some bag space on a trip.

  1. You cant put glitter mani and the distract-ingly good looking instructor in the same post. There is danger of ppl going cross eyed you know :D

  13. Love your blog....following. Pics are great. I am yet to try rafting..I chickened out the last time we were there. Rafting, bungy jumping and sky diving are in my to-do list.
    BTW I am also a Nail Art addict but not as good as you. Would love to get some tips from you.
