Glitter Strip Nails

It’s almost Memorial Day Weekend! This weekend is going to be so busy since I’ll be traveling and I’m sure it will fly by and I’ll be back to work before I know it. I did my nails yesterday since tonight I’ll be chaperoning prom and this weekend I’ll be at a wedding.

I wanted to go with a neutral color because my dress tonight is an eggplant color (this is a re-wear which I’ll share how I styled it this time around, tomorrow) and my dress this weekend is black and white (that look will be up after the weekend). I decided on this pale pink polish, Essie’s “Ballet Slippers”, but I wanted to jazz it up a little so I decided to add this gold glitter polish from ELF.

I didn’t want to just cover the pink with the glittery top coat — I wanted to do something a little different so I decided to concentrate the glitter in the center to create a sort of glitter strip effect.

I think it turned out pretty well! Do they make glitter pens for nails? That might be cool to get a more concentrated glitter look and to also make a thinner strip. The nail look turned out very soft and romantic looking. I think it’ll go great with my looks both tonight and this weekend! Now hopefully it won’t chip before Saturday!
