Pinspiration ~ Glitter Triangles

So Pinterest, also known as the sucker of all free time, is such a great place to pull creative inspiration when your fingers are feeling less than fresh. I did just that when I went for these glitter triangle accented nails. It appears the original pin was from BeautyRiot.com. This is four coats of Pixel in Show Me the $. It's a very mild pale gray jelly. I thought it was alright as far as VNL and coverage but then I saw them in the sun and not so much. You could really see some bald spots so I'd recommend some undies next time.


I then used the Sally Hansen chevron tip guides after a fast dry topcoat and did two quick coats of an unnamed Color Club lilac glitter. It came in a set I won with no sticker - let me know if she looks familiar! For my accent nail I did one coat of Nina Ultra Pro Sweet Nothings. It's a one coater - yippee! I then had my go rounds with the massive hex glitters of Color Club It's a Hit! to get full coverage on my accent nail.
I was very proud of this mani and got some great comments. Too bad those four coats of jelly bubbled and popped off after only two days - waagh. I'll be doing one of these manis again.

  1. Love this look! I actually did a similar design today too, haha. I also found it on pinterest but I believe a different one than you found. Love your color combinations!

  6. Hey, Freshie! It has been awhile since I left a comment here. Sorry about that. This manicure looks amazing. Lately, I've been into whites which I think is odd (for me at least) because I've always been a vampy kind of girl. :)
