I know several of my glitter-diva ladies will probably like this one! Apparently another "trend" for the season is messy glitter at the base of the nail. Does anybody know who this "trend-decider" is? I'd like to meet him/her and punch him/her in the throat. Screw your so-called trends; I like what I like when I like it, and I'll wear it whether it's trendy or not. So stick that in your pipe and smoke it.

I do have to laugh, though....that crazy-ass neon angled french tip mani from the other day has more likes on Instagram and more repins on Pinterest than any of my other mani's. Go figure. I don't know if that calls my taste into question or theirs. Maybe I'm just too old and crotchety for it. Evs. Don't care. Don't like it.

This one isn't really my style either. I thought it was the last of the requested mani's that I needed, but I just got a request for three more that I'll need to do tonight.  Hey! Maybe my next post will be something that I'm a huge fan of. It seems like forever since I loved something I did. I do like this one, though. I wanna' make out with that Fantasy Makers Confetti Confettis glitter. In a word, amazeballs!  In person it flashes so bright I almost need shades.  
I really love the base color on this one, too - Square Hue's Dear John. The color just did not photograph well at all, and I'm still working on figuring out that damn lightbox issue. No matter how I set that thing up, I just can't seem to make it work for me. I don't know if the lights that came with it aren't bright enough or what. What I DO know is I'm frustrated. I want to take good mani pics. Is that too much to ask? (picture me on my knees sobbing and overacting when you read that)
Anywho, I did one coat of the  Dear John and let that dry. After I applied the second coat, while it was still wet I just put some of the glitter on a brush, held it above the base of my nail and tapped it with my finger so the glitter would fall lightly onto my nails. I wanted it to be scattered freely without any type of perfection. I like when things don't have to be perfect.  And oh, was I glitterfied!! My table, my chair, my lap, my looked like a 1979 disco ball had exploded directly above my head. 

Ahhh, disco.....I'm so sad you're dead.


  1. Wow! What a stunning manicure. I love glitter manicures like these too. I love your nail shape :)

    1. I'm actually not a huge glitter fan normally, but I do love this glitter. I can't really take much credit for the nail shape; I ordered square Custom Solutions nails, so they made 'em. :)

  2. Your post cracked me up :) . Looks lovely on you.

    1. Thank you!! I love it when someone tells me I made them laugh. That's what keeps me writing instead of just posting a straight manicure post. :)

  3. For those who want to take over your market, too. Some call this the free stuff phase,
    others call it pre-sales student loans for people with
    bad credit, but old-fashioned direct mail student loans for people
    with bad credit than junk mail. The problem is that creating your own product could take you weeks and sometimes
    months to produce, develop and sell products that satisfy each
