..Nail Confetti

The deets:  Essie "No Boundaries" and Milani Jewel FX in "GEMS"

The most recent trend to hit the nail scene (I know, there's such a thing as a "nail scene?" what?) is having one metallic/sparkly/bedazzled nail and I have fallen DEEPLY in love with it.  My most recent combo and probably my favorite thus far is this one.  The little pink flecks on my ring finger that perfectly match the other matte nails really just makes my day.  I couldn't stop staring at my ring finger..this must be exactly what its like to get engaged (okay maybe not...).

  4. Love this look! I had it done at the salon a while ago and it took me a good 5 minutes to explain to the lady that I only wanted one nail done with glitter. She clearly was not on board with the trend, ha!

    Still, loving it...glitter & all :)

  15. Another great glittery polish find! You have an eye for those. I love doing one nail in a different color too. And it IS a little something like that to have a sparkly ring on your finger ;o)

  17. Like someone else said, glitter is SUCH a pain to get off, so that's why I love this trend. It's a little compromise!
