Yeah, I've been slacking off lately. Things have been super busy and also I've just been kind of lazy. I have senioritis in pretty much every aspect of my life. WHOOPS. But here's the glitter day of the 31 day challenge! I have no idea what this polish is called (it's from Urban Outfitters and I got it for Christmas last year and the label fell off WHOOPS AGAIN)
I tried out the peel-off glue method of base coat for this manicure and it was AMAZING. I'll be honest, it was almost too amazing for me. It's my own fault though. I did these about 30 minutes before volleyball practice and when I was putting my shoes on, one nail smudged. I hadn't really let the layers of polish dry and I always start painting my nails WAYY too soon before I have places to be and also I'm dumb. But anyways, once the nail smudged, I peeled it off, because HEY, that's what the glue base is for! And it was so easy! Wow! Essentially, by the time practice was over, my nails were bare the the gym was littered with these beautiful little pieces of polish. I actually found one yesterday during my warmup, four days later. WHOOPS NUMBER 3.
This polish was super hard to photograph, but I think I got it alright. None of these polishes can accurately capture how freakin' SPARKLY this guy is, but you have an idea of it! It's super dense microglitters, a mix of silver holographic and then some deep pink ones. Really gorgeous, but it is a total hungry polish. It needed at least two layers of top coat to smooth it out, and could probably use more.
To do the peel-off base coat, I just used some regular white Elmer's glue painted on with a really old fluffly paint brush. It was that easy!
Sooooo pretttyyyyyy : )
