That’s why China Glaze Some Like It Haute is such a great glitter for me – it’s sparkly, with round holo glitters, but the charcoal microglitter tones it down. The holo glitters are also always obediently weather appropriate, looking muted on cloudy days and blindingly bright in the sun. This is two coats over one coat of ulta3 Metal, a gorgeous charcoal shimmer that looks like lead pencil, one of my top ten ulta3s.

Mardi Gras

I want to share some crazy nails I created using the JulieG Mardis Gras Collection. This set includes six blingy, mega-glitters that give you a textured, jewel encrusted look without topcoat, or a super glittery finish with topcoat.

To get this look, I took a small nail art brush and dabbed on each of the six colors in a random pattern. It took two passes to get everything opaque. I didn’t worry about creating a gradient between shades, nor was I going for crisp lines. You could say this was sort of an experiment. But I LOVE how it came out! It’s definitely not for the faint of heart. I wore this out to run errands (on only one hand…LOL) and got stopped everywhere I went!
