It's Monday again, which means it's time for another Monkey-See-Monkey-Do manicure. Today I wanted to recreate a manicure that I fell in love with a while back because of the way it uses glitter--it showcases the glitter beautifully without being glitter-bomb overwhelming, and adds cool depth. Since I am still being converted over to the glitter side, I found the approach really appealing--you can see the original manicure by clicking here.
I wanted to change up the colors a bit, so I started with an olive-ish green (who me?); this is Mossy Britches by Nina Ultra Pro:

For the glitter sweep, I started with Fanchromatic Nails Fistful of Latinum (Indie Alert!!), and sponged it in a diagonal across each nail. This was the perfect polish for this, because it contains several different sizes of gold glitter. Then, I added a yellow-gold large gleequin and a gold stud to each nail, to give added texture to the design:
I couldn't be happier with how this came out, and it was so easy! I can't wait to do with with red and gold or red and silver for the holidays. For someone like me who likes a little bit of glitter, there are so many possibilities here. :)
Thanks for looking, and please check out the MSMD manicures by my fellow bloggers, linked below. :)
