Glitter Galore

Sorry to drop the toes on you all again but I couldn't resist! My girl Tara has been doing nails for 12 years now. When we met her and her husband for dinner the other night I couldn't take my eyes off of her sparkling toenails. There's no way it could have been nail polish. I asked, and it wasn't. It was pure glitter! I told her she had to get me in, those tootsies were irresistible. She used a dehydrator, then one coat of UV gel as a sticky base. She had about 20 different colors of glitter - I finally decided on a neon coral orange. It's perfect for the middle of July. She then sprinkled pure glitter over the wet UV and cured it in her lamp for a session. When done she put one more coat of UV gel and cured it so it was nice and smooth. It was so simple and I can't stop staring at my feet. This shot was inside with flash, imagine them outside in direct sunlight.

She said they should last about a month, I've already made another appt. because she had so many awesome glitter colors I couldn't have just one. What do you think? Would you get a pure glitter pedi?

  5. I've seen these on people and I've seen them advertised around town here and they look so awesome, I was wearing Zoya Charla at a get together a month ago and someone there had glitter toes and asked me where I had mine done, it was funny!

    You picked a very nice color for the middle of summer!

  12. Kitty - Even if they don't all you would have to do is take them some hobby glitter and ask. I'm sure someone has to!

    Thanks ABOP!

    KarenD - She mentioned she would drill lightly to get the top layer of UV off then file it down. I'll let you know ;)
