Winter Glitter and Glow

Hello there!

Welcome to Nail Me, Baby! This is my new blog dedicated to my nail designs and nail art.

I find inspiration in lots of different places. Tonight, however, I had a really hard time coming up with something I was really excited about. So... We get simple Winter Glitter and Glow.

I used Seche Clear as a base coat, and then two thick layers of Mini Divas "Star Estrella".

This isn't really my favorite brand of polish. It's really transparent and takes quite a bit to make it opaque. You can see in this pic that it's not even totally opaque with the amount that I used. But I like the color, so I use it when nothing else will suffice.

Then, I put a drop of Pure Ice "Bring On The Joy" at the base of the nail.

Wipe all the excess off the brush back into the bottle to leave a relatively clean brush.

Use this brush to drag the glitter away from the base toward the end of the nail. It shouldn't cover the entire nail.

Top with 2 coats of Seche Vite top coat and allow to dry.

And there you go! I hope you enjoy my blog. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think, or leave suggestions for future manicures.
