Happy New Year (shattered glass nails)


Ahh it's the last day of 2013. How very weird! 
I wanted to do something crazy sparkly for today, and I think I succeeded, haha. These were inspired by Polish Pals' shattered glass nails.

I used: Essence - Date in the Moonlight / cut-up glequins / Essence - Quick Dry Topcoat

One more photo after the jump!

I grabbed a bunch of glequins, and cut them up into tiny shards with scissors. I then applied a thin layer of topcoat, and placed the pieces of glitter on my nails one by one. It looks kind of messy in a close-up shot like this, but I can assure you it just looked amazingly sparkly in real life ;)
I really couldn't stop staring at my nails! 

I hope you all have a great night, stay safe, and I will see in you in 2014! 


  1. Nice look! Must have taken some time O.o but the result is fierce!

    1. Thanks! I think it took me about 15 minutes? I nearly lost an eye a couple of times though, because of glitter shards flying everywhere :')

  2. These look great! I'm definitely going to recreate Polish Pals' design myself sometime because it looks very nice and sparkly!

  3. Good grief I love this!! Definitely need to try this out. I always love your designs and combinations.
