My Current NOTW - Glitterbomb

Hi everyone!

My schedule won't really allow for many breaks to change up my mani, so I've been coping by just doing something I think is totally awesome on the weekend and keeping it on throughout the week.

The (left hand) mani for this week was more or less the result of the awesome Summer weather more-or-less turning into nasty Fall rains overnight. I don't have anything against Fall, but I really hate it when the weather just changes overnight. I need these things to happen gradually.

I just noticed that my hands are playing Summer/Fall right now. I just chose a colour and put it on my right hand a few hours ago and it's this really nice brick red by Wet N Wild which reminds me of Fall leaves. OMG. I just put this on a few hours ago and I ALREADY have tipwear?! Okay. This is coming off. LOL.

Anyway, back on topic.. the left hand mani is the one I was going to show you now, so I should get around to showing you soon. ;)

Ah, a glitterbomb to end the Summer. Perfect. I did this randomly on a nail wheel when I was bored, and I found it intriguing.. so it graduated to my nails. :P

For this look, I used:

Base: China Glaze Calypso Blue (I'm afraid to take this mani off for fear that my nails will be smurfy underneath even though I used basecoat)
Glitter: Nfu Oh #40, #56. Cult Nails Hypnotize Me, Nubar 2010, and this Kiss Nail Art polish which is mostly purple glitter (I can't remember its name/if I ever saw a name).

Hope you all enjoy! I'm diggin' glitter right now!



  1. This is SO freaking cool. I know I don't have all of those, but I wonder if I can mimic this? I'm certainly going to give it a try!

  2. This is amazing! I'm gonna have to attempt something like this. ^_^

  3. I was gonna say that looks like Calypso Blue- I LOVE that color-but taking it off leaves smurfy blue EVERYWHERE!

  4. This is so AMAZING! Seriously!

  5. @Nicole - I can't wait for your post! :D

    @Rie - Please share when you do! I can't get enough of glitter right now!

    @Fashion Footing - thank you! I'm glad you like it!

    @Fingers - Oh boy.. Considering I'll have this on for the rest of the week.. I wonder how bad it'll get ;D lol

  7. Holy crap! Looks gorgeous....hope you have a couple of gallons of acetone to remove it all :)

  8. @LauraJean - Thank you! Please share when you do! :D

    @Lauren - I'm dreading the removal.. Smurf nails and horrible glitter removal are pretty much guaranteed XD
