Nails ~ Glitter Edition

I don't know if it's the holidays but I have been addicted to glitter nails the past month and still am =P I notice that my friends seems to like it when I post my weekly nail colors picture on facebook, so I decided to so a post here as well.

I have received quite a few bottles of Gold nail polish from my girlfriends for my Bday / Xmas gifts... apparently my girls know me well since I always prefer my gold versus silver for anything from accessories and clothes. It's just a warm but fun and festive color (^_^)

I spend quite a fortune on eating out and clothes as you may have notice, so I never spulge on manicures.... so nothing fancy & no drawing requires, here are my weekly nail color ;)

China glaze in Snow Globe from my Luxe Box (glitter top coat)
Sally Hansen Xtremewear #16 (dark blue base)

Btw, if you haven't heard about Luxe Box, you should take a look... at $12 a month you get 4-6 deluxe sample of beauty product including shipping. I got this full size China Glaze nail polish for my first months subscription.

Dearlee #080 - Born Pretty
This is a website that I found recently that I like very much, with a lot of nail polish, stamps and tolls at a very affordable price plus Free Shipping
I call this party confetti, gold with a mix of blue & red... I only apply 2 layers here, should have either apply a third layer or a base color so that no clear nail are visible.

BK Sliver Shimmer - Born Pretty

Yimane Dark Purple Matt (Suede) - Born Pretty
Sally Hansen Xtremewear #200 Strobe Light
(over base coat of the same matte purple)

Sephora OPI in Lost Without My GPS (red)
Sally Hansen Salon Manicure #310 Gilty Pleasure (gold)
Topcoat of Forever 21 Gold Glitter

The Sally Hansen Salon Manicure is my fave drugstore nail polish, similar bottle as OPI but half the price. The brush is wider and the bottle dry out less quickly compare to OPI.

Sephora OPI in What's Your Poison? (red glitter)
Base coat of any Black Nail Polish

Sephora OPI in Only Gold for Me Topcaot (gold glitter)
Base of Sally Hansen Salon Manicure #310 Gilty Pleasure (gold)

It was really difficult to achieve this with this glitter topcoat, I had to do at least 3-4 layers of the glitter topcoat. I may have to find another polish to achieve this look =P

American Apparel in Passport Blue
B.O #67 - Born Pretty

Got a Teambuy deal of 5 AA Nail Polish for $15, it's my first time trying out AA nail polish and I have to say I do love it.. the brush, the color and the bottle

Verdict :
Love glitter nail polish since it last forever 
Hate glitter nail polish since it's super difficult to take off


  1. Love the gold on gold!
    I just tried that the other day with the AA glitter gold polish on a pale gold polish I have.

    I used to hate glitter but ever since the past summer I've been developing a slight obsession for it.

  2. I did a gold version of the last pic as well but the picture was blurry so didn't post it. I use a gold base and a more coppery glitter on the tips which looks great as well

    I love how glitter looks but hate how difficult it's to take off,,... just take forever =(

  3. haha it is painful process but it encourages me to wear the same polish for more than 2-3 days. I'm so fickle with polishs I constantly want to change it up!

  4. Just want to say your article is as amazing. The clearness in your post is Just great and i can assume you are an expert on this subject. Fine with your permission let me to grab your RSS feed to keep updated with forthcoming post. Thanks a million and please keep up the enjoyable work.
