Today I have a post for Polish Days! I really enjoy these monthly events so I didn't want to miss out on this one (although I'm a day late). This month's theme was 'Bling' inspired by the fact that Ms. Polly Polish herself got engaged (Congrats Hannah)! Her ring is absolutely beautiful and unique so we went blingy for the occasion.
I really wasn't planning this mani, sort of just sat down and painted my nails with what I wanted. As luck would have it, it turned out pretty nice! I started with two coats of Color Club By Design, a lovely plum creme. Then I added a coat of Orly Miss Conduct, normally a pink scattered holographic polish but layered over the dark plum it looks berry-colored. Or something. It's just extremely pretty, I really can't stop staring at my nails.
The diamond glitters are from Born Pretty Store, of course! I received this a little while ago and saved it to use for this event. Since it's diamond shaped and holographic, what could be better for a blinged out mani? As usual, this glitter comes in a little tub with way more glequins I could ever need. I love these so much though! I already have a couple of ideas on other ways to use them.
I really tried to capture the sparkle in this as best I could, but methinks I need a new lamp. Just trust me, you're better off if you get yourself a bottle of Orly Miss Conduct. I almost didn't because it's so pink (here is a color accurate swatch) and I never wear pink but I'm so glad I did. I even semi-killed a lemming with this combo.
If you're interested in these specific glitters, you can find them HERE (Item id: 791) and remember there's a 10% off code!
