Glitteratti

Oooh this design popped into my mind and it turned out exactly how I imagined it. Definitely my favorite so far. I used two coats of Sinful Pearl Harbor and then gave the konad tip plate m19 a try. I was a bit challenged with picking the right size tip for each finger, I think this one will take more practice.
I used konad special polish in pale blue and a top coat of Seche Vite. I then stamped two of the three flowers from plate m57 on my index fingers. Isn't it great when something you envision actually works out? Also, does anyone have tips fro removing glitter polish other than soaking in remover for 30 seconds before wiping (that can't be good for your skin or nails)??

  1. What a fresh looking twist on a French mani. Yea, I like those moments when I creation actually can happen. I dreamed about one, once, and I made it and wow, what a surprise that it looked just like my dream! I posted about it on my blog.

    There are a few blogs out there that talk about a process on removing glitters. It's something along the lines of soaking a cotton ball with remove (acetone??) putting it on the nail and then covering/wrapping it up in tin foil, really tight. Granted, I have not tried it but the bloggers say it works great. I think they are leaving it on about a minute or so, checking it out, occasionally, to see it it has taken affect.

    I can't tell you who, specifically, did this (there are several that reviewed it) but maybe a Google search will turn up one of those blogs?
