Nail Art Challenge: Day One. Glitter!

I love nail art challenges, they are good for keeping my brain going. Coming up with ideas for new mani's can be hard sometimes. I often get stuck in a leopard print rut. These are great to get me out of my rut!

Day one is glitter. I told you guys in my last post that I was back on the glitter train, so this was pretty good timing for me. I went to my local mall and popped into Claire's because I had been hearing a lot about their affordable polishes.

Check out all that glitter! I was definitely happy to find this. This set was $10.99 for 5 glitter minis (which are actually more like half-sizes, not minis). Super cheap! I was a little worried they would apply like glue, we are talking about Claire's here, they are no professional beauty company. However, I was pleasantly surprised!

This is one coat of China Glaze First Mate with one coat of this unnamed multi-colored glitter from the Precious Metals Claire's collection. Yes, I did just say one coat. This was awesome to apply. All of that glitter spread perfectly on my nail in one coat. I was shocked. Definitely a glitter packed polish.

Here's a sunlight photo. I love the color scheme of this glitter. I can't decide if it reminds me more of peacocks or Mardi Gras. I couldn't stop staring at my fingers while wearing this. I looked like I had jewels for nails.

Most of the glitter is green but there's plenty of purple and blue in there too. This is so exciting. I think everyone should own this set of glitters. This polish alone is worth the ten bucks.

Are you guys still on the glitter train? Or did you hop on the gradient train? Nail trends come and go but chunky glitter will always be one of my favorites.
