Candy Cane glitter mix! Hopefully when we get some sunlight again, I can retake the photos so you can get the full effect.

Galaxy Glitter! Custom mix.

Good thing I checked my e-mail, because I would have missed out on this! I needed some way to ease myself back into things (and I am RUSTY), and what better way than a request? A wonderful viewer named Emily needed something to go with her dress, and I created something simple but pretty and not over-the-top. I hope you enjoy it, Emily! Others my follow as well, of course.

I’m warning you from this point on until my nails are back to normal: they are nubs.

1. Start with creating a chevron french by sweeping in a diagonal from one side, then the other. This is L’Oreal’s After Hours. I swear, it’s dark blue.

2. Use a shimmery silver to outline. This is Sinful Colors’ Out of This World.

3. (OPTIONAL) I wanted to make the effect that there were petals floating in the background, so I painted over the dark blue with Sally Hansen’s Glass Slipper.

4. With a light purple (I mixed white with Sally Hansen’s Lacey Lilac), create a flower. I used a thin brush, but use what you have.

5. To make the center of the flower, I used holographic glitter pieces. You can use glitter, rhinestones, whatever you want.

Add your top coat and you’re done!





Just foolin’ with glitter. Haven’t played with the good stuff in a while.

This is a simple beadwork design that’s very easy to do!

1. Start by painting your nails with a raspberry color. I’m using OPI’s Outback Aphrodisiac.

2. You’re going to use a chrome-like silver and a dotting tool (or nail pen, toothpick, bobby pin, what have you) to do the “beadwork”. Start by making four dots in the shape of a diamond.

3. On the left and right dots, you’re just going to make dots going out in a diagonal that will create two V’s on the sides.

Add your top coat and you’re done!
