Hey guys! Hope your week is going well. Over the past few weeks, missbellatracey has rocked out some awesome glitter placement manicures on Instagram. Usually, I leave this up to the pros (*cough cough* Polish All the Nails), but after seeing so many of Tracey’s gorgeous designs, I had to do something.
I started with a base of OPI My Vampire is Buff, then scooped out some teal and orange glitter pieces from The Living Daylights. (I love this glitter so much, I snatched up a second bottle from a blog sale a few months ago, and I still have most of my original bottle left!) I knew I wasn’t going to get the pieces perfectly lined up, so I aimed for straight lines and had fun.
I love how this turned out. The glitter has a metallic finish, so my nails flash in the light every time they move. I’ve definitely had a few comments asking if they were nail stickers — everyone told me I had the patience of a saint! (I don’t. I was just watching The Voice and had some time to kill.) It didn’t take that long; the process is more tedious than difficult. My entire manicure was done in the two hours the show aired, which is a typical amount of time I would spend on something freehand or taped.
