Nails of the Day: Dark Sparkle
Hey everyone! Hope you're having a good weekend... I can't believe we just have one week until Christmas! I wanted to do something festive with my nails, and I'm enjoying neutral-toned glitters because they pop, but they go with almost anything.
The shade I'm sporting here is Wet n Wild Color Icon nail polish (limited edition) in Diamond in the Rough. Overall it just looks like a gun-metal toned glitter... but if you look closely, there are two sizes of glitter in this... a very fine silver-colored glitter, and larger glitters that seem to shine in various color tones. While it's overall a pretty dark look, it's actually rather multi-dimensional when you watch your nails move and catch the light.
Here- you can see that they match my grey sweatpants perfectly! LOL. I applied 2 coats of this polish, as well as my Milani Glosse Top Coat. I recommend using the thickest top coat you have... Sally Hansen Mega Shine would've been great for this. That way you smooth out the surface of the nail, which can be come somewhat rough and prone to chipping with glitter polishes. As far as taking glitter polish off, it's really not that bad. I actually just peel it off when I'm ready to change it!

- Had a blast last night with my friend Kalee and her boyfriend Jonathan who stayed with us. She had her dog Mia Bean with her as well... (See Cupcake's Facebook)
For some reason we kept trying to take a serious picture...
