DAY 19 of OMD Challenge- Glitter Nails!

TGIF everyone!  I only work mon-fri so I basically live for the weekends! 😀  You too?

It’s day 19 of the Oh Mon Dieu! Nail Challenge and today is all about GLITTER!  Normally I don’t wear a lot of glitter… not sure why.  But I have some real gems that I’ve been wanting to try like my new bottle of POLKA.COM by OPI!  It’s lovely purple, blue and magenta glitters became the inspiration for today’s color combo:

This was one of the quickest manis that I’ve done in a while!  The colors I chose were great and I only needed one coat of most of them.  Here’s what I’m wearing-

Blue ♥ Pure Ice French Kiss– one coat on each nail

Magenta Glitter ♥ Sinful Colors Star Dust– on thumb, pointer and pinkie

Magenta Stripes ♥ no-name Stripe Rite striping polish on middle and ring fingers

Black Strips ♥ NYC Black Lace Creme on middle and ring fingers

Multicolor Glitter ♥ OPI Polka.com on middle and ring fingers

I had a little hiccup with this manicure and I’m surprised it didn’t get totally ruined.  Ya see it’s been EXTREMELY hot and humid in New York this summer and it’s really hard to do any photography outside.  My camera fogs up when I take it outside, so if I plan to use natural light- I have to place my camera outside a few minutes before I take pics so it can adjust to the heat to help eliminate fogging of my lens.  Ok, so I did that last nite- thinking I covered all my bases.  Well, once I walked outside to take some shots my whole mani wrinkled up and got all distorted.  What the heck?????  I thought it was ruined.  My seche vite was on for about 5 minutes at that time, which means it was mostly dry… I can’t believe the top coat shrunk like that!!  So I went back inside to try some pics indoors and to my surprise, the mani bounced back and looked normal again!  I can’t say that I’ve ever had that happen to me before.  Lessen learned- Stay inside Jacqui.  It’s just too damn hot out there!  I hope you’re having some tolerable weather in your corner of the world!

See you all soon for 3-D day!  I have no idea what I’m doing- but I’m sure I’ll think of something!  Maybe some embellishments that stick up off my nail…or maybe I can paint some 3-Dish looking nail art?  We shall see!  Ciao loves!

  1. HOLY HUMIDITY, Batman! Your camera fogged up and your mani wrinkled? That is insane. I’m loving that OPI Polka.com; hex glitter is one of my faves!

  2. Wow, that’s crazy hot! And the weather too 😉 seriously though, that’s a cool look – and I’ve never heard of a top coat reacting like that. It’s pretty warm here in Vienna but nothing crazy – just slightly polish bubbling weather.

  3. wow I love this mani, I’m really a glitter addict 😀
    What happened to your nails is so strange… it’s the first time I hear that!!!
    I had a problem with my camera, me too! It’s freaking hot in Italy and I can’t take pictures directly outside… the hot and the harsh light burn my photos!!!
