Getting Nailed! Week 11

Welcome to Week 11 of Getting Nailed! I did an intro post where I explained my goal in posting these every other week and how you can submit your photo to be featured. Check out the post if you need to refresh your memory. I'll be sharing photos of my own nails as I get them done every two weeks, photos of neat ideas I've found online, and the occasional viewer submission when they come in.

I've searched Pinterest so many times for nail ideas and designs, so I've seen glitter a lot. I always love how it looks in the photos so I walked in and had my nail tech help me pick out the best glitter and the base coat to accomplish this look. 

I don't know the brand of "Sexagon" which is my base coat because as you see, there's no name LOL. I was really excited to see that the OPI shade "In True Stefani Fashion" was an almost brand new bottle to their salon so I was really excited to see how it would look. I love new polish because it's fresh, pretty, the bottle isn't worn down, and there's just something about a full bottle of polish to get ya excited! 

I will point out that I did not get my nails filled this appt so that is why you see the line on the base coat photo. The top coat of glitter really helped hide the fact that I didn't get a fill, and you couldn't tell until about 12 days in because it started chipping on that part of my natural nail. 

I loved this look so much and I got it on my toes to match since I had a pedicure. Our girls loved it as well and thought it was so awesome to see on my hands and feet. My husband thought I was a little too old to pull off the full glitter look, but I had fun with it. 

I really REALLY love this top coat because the glitter sparkles different colors. I found myself quite often just kind of looking at it and slowly moving my fingers around so it would change colors in the light. It kind of reminds me of a shiny disco ball actually, always changing as the light hits it!

Your base coat is by China Glaze. You can see it on the bottom of the bottle. :)
