Blue Glittah Baby!!!!

Yep, I've fallen back in love with glitter, and my new favorite brand with great glitters is Dare to Wear!

Check this one out...

I layered 2 coats of Dare to Wear "Dancing Shoes"over 1 coat of NYC "Empire State Blue". I always layer a glitter over another color to help with removal, Empire State Blue was a perfect match as a base color. :)

Love this, look at it! The different shapes and sizes are sparkle "dancing" together perfectly!  The D2W applied nicely and the glitter was not difficult to "place", in fact no special techniques required, just brushed it on!

Now this did not dry smoothly, so I have to do the usual...2 coats of Gelous and 1 coat of Seche Vite!

I loved this so much, I decided to "mattify" it with 1 coat of China Glaze "Matte Magic", and I loved it even more...

When you apply a matte top coat to a glitter, it takes away the shine and sparkle, but delivers all the great shapes and detail that glitters have to offer!

I wore this manicure the entire week and I was never happier to wear one color for so long  :)

Pin It!
