31DC2013: Day 17 - Glitter

Today I had a really hard time deciding if I wanted to just put some glitter polish on my nails and call it a night, or to do some nail art.

I opted for the nail art, though I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it.


First off, I wish I had started with a base color instead of doing five/six coats of Color Club Jingle Jangle on my nails. The overall feeling of my nails are thick and squishy and I have no idea if they're ever going to fully dry.


Other than that though, I really like the design and how OPI Pink Friday looks with the glitter. I do wish my pinwheel nail was a little neater, but nothing a little practice wouldn't fix :)

Unfortunately, I do not feel like these photos do the manicure much justice. It's so sparkly and awesome  but my camera was like "no, I'm going to make it look dull" so whatever. I need to find a different place to take my photos so the lighting is always consistent (aka, away from natural light).

Hopefully I'll have something posted tomorrow, but honestly, I'm leaning more towards no. I have work from 8:00a-12:00p then school from 1:00p-4:50p and right afterwards I am driving to see Yellowcard on the Ocean Avenue Acoustic tour. If not, I'll just be behind again for a little while, but I know I'll catch up :)

    1. Haha. Thank you! Unfortunately I had to take them off before I went to bed, they kept denting like crazy and wouldn't dry :( But at least the photos looks good, right? haha

  4. These look very cute -- that glitter polish looks great with the pink! I have the same problem with photos :( I'm hoping a DIY lightbox will solve it though!

    1. A light box definitely helps, I just have mine set up near a window, and obviously the light changes throughout the day haha
