Welcome! So glad you stopped by my little bit of blogdom. Here I share my hobbies of nail polish, nail art and glue-on nails.

Ruby Slippers and Gold

I've got a problem. I just don't know when to quit when I'm trying to make nail art. I add too much, hate it and have to start all over again. I'm also having a problem with using too much glitter. So much so that I'm nearly blind from it.

This time though, things worked out ok.

Cover Girl Ruby Dust, Kiss Nail Art Paint Black, Wet n Wild Clear top coat & Black, Sinful Colors Under 18 & All About You, LA Colors purple glitter (no name)

  • I took a piece of cosmetic sponge and dabbed All About You all over my nails.
  • Then I took Under 18 and did a half 
  • side swipe.

  • I decided to paint on more All About You from cuticle to tip. Kind of straight up.
  • At this point I was itching to cover the whole thing with glitter, but I restrained myself.
  • I added LA Colors glitter polish just to the pink area and did a black line with the striper. (And I was really leary of doing that. It seems of late, when I add some nail art paint, I immediately hate it. But this time I didn't mind it.)

  • It still didn't look done to me, so I added the dots.
  • And then I added a coat of Ruby Dust to the pink area. (Hey I'm restraining myself here by limiting the glitter to that area!)

  • I used the clear top coat on the gold area, and called it done.

  •  Still working on dotting with my left hand onto my right. Not as easy as it looks on those videos.

Let's see how long this mani last before I remove and start again!

It looks great! I know what you mean about dotting with your left hand. It definitely takes some getting used to. And the dots on my right hand never look as good as the ones on my left hand. It's just one big ugh! haha. :)

Hi Olivia! Earlier today, I looked down at my right hand and a dot is missing on my middle finger! It's nail polish, not a sticker and it jumped ship. How does that happen? ;p

(had to fix my post. Can't tell my right from my left hand today.)
