So while I agree that Pinterest is mostly just a place to pin a bunch of recipes you'll never make, and pictures of vacations you'll never take, and is good for taking up huge chunks of time, there are a few boards of mine that I actually utilize. The biggest one being my "Dazzling Digits" board, or nail inspiration. I capture nail pictures from all around the internet and actually go back and try a lot of the different trends or colors I see (and love when my friends tag me in their nail pictures! :) My current nails are an example of that!
A couple different places have shown the gold glitter over nude look so I wanted to try it out for myself this last weekend for the wedding. Though I WISH I had Deborah Lippmann's Boom Boom Pow, I just went with my basic gold glitter from Forever over my favorite nude - Jazz by Essie. I love how they turned out! From a distance they just look like a very shimmery champagne color and you can barely tell that it's glitter.
Definitely am a fan of mixing colors to create new looks. Be creative and see what you can come up with!
While we're talking about nails, I thought I would share my new secret weapon: Seche Vite - a top coat I found (thanks to this blog). Her nails always look so glassy and perfect so I bought myself a bottle and love this stuff! Before, I would paint my nails and I swear hours later they would still get creases in them if I wasn't careful. This dries so quickly and there aren't any smudges or lines after. I even painted my nails right before bed and they were fine! (this is like a dream come true for me). So I definitely recommend this one (and still love hoof lacquer too).
There's your dose of glitter and nails for the day! Make it a sparkly one.
P.S. Do you like my new blog header? My brother did this one for me again and I LOVE it! Thanks Rich!!
