#1 Glitter tip nail polish

February 7, 2016




First day of trying something new! For me it’s important to take care of my hands and nails, the hands are being used all the time. Literally all the time. I have painted my own nails with regular polish for a long time but it wasn’t until I got my first shellac done that I got hooked for real. Shellac is the best! To save money from going to expensive salons my beloved boyfriend actually got me an UV lamp and a set of Gel colors for Christmas last year. It has become an integral part of my monthly “beauty routine”. However, I still end up doing the same style over and over again, and that’s why I decided to take my nail skills to the next level.


That was easier said than done. I wanted to do a colorful pattern using tape.


After about an hour of prepping and trying it out I realized I need some better tools in order to use my Gel colors. Instead of giving up (believe me I wanted to) I decided to actually use my old regular polishes and do a simple, girly, glitterish look instead (result above).


What have I learned?


Research before starting a project- that would’ve saved me some time.


Don’t give up just because it didn’t work out the first time or went as planned- find a new way and do it again.


Maybe this wasn’t my best, but it was my first and everyone has to start somewhere!


This is what I used: OPI Natural Strengthener, OPI Nail Lacquer “Bubble Bath”, Essie Luxeffects “A cut above”, Sally Hansen No Chip top coat
