Glitter Loaded Nails for Day 3 of Erica's Challenge

Hey ya'll! First off, sorry I missed the half moon day of the challenge. I just have so much on my plate that I simply didn't realize the deadline had passed to post and link up.

But nevertheless, I am back and I have some extremely glitter packed nails for you today. I was excited about this day because I have tons of glitter polish. I was expecting this to be simple. I went through at least 20 different glitters before my husband helped me decide.

For my manicure I have used Pure Ice Private Show as my base color and Sexy Mama (again by Pure Ice) as my glitter. So without further ado, here are the pictures of my glitter loaded manicure for the challenge.

Here's the finished look. These two colors were made for one another.
I also wanted to show you what Private Show looks like solo. So here is a picture of my base color. I love that the big polish makers appear to be watching indie trends and are making those type of polishes accessible to all of us. :-) This is a black polish with lots of different colored glitter.
Now back to the loaded nails. :-) Sexy Mama is a fun multicolored glitter with a couple of different sized glitters in the mix. The colors are bright and bold. Such a fun color! It's like a party on your nails.

I wanted to try to show all of the colors that are in Sexy Mama. It's like rainbow confetti!


 We all know that this wouldn't be my blog if I didn't give this mani a dose of holographic topcoat. I went for my Girly Bits Hocus Pocus. Below is what happened when I put that over my glitter packed mani....

 I just love the way that this polish tosses off so many little rainbows. Ahhh!



My next mani is going to be inspired by a pattern. I'm thinking of using my tie-dye shirt as inspiration. That is a pattern, right? Check out what other manicures are coming up in the outline below. I'm also going to link you to the other fabulous glitter packed manicures. So you might wanna pull out the shades and be prepared for a bling-a-thon!

    1. I did see that!! I am so happy to see that the polish makers (and especially Pure Ice lately) have been paying attention to what we're wanting from indie companies and are stepping up to the plate. The Velour collection, Diamond, Party Glam and now this latest one really shows that Pure Ice is looking to dominate the nail world. I LOVE seeing these great colors for $2. Can't beat that!

    1. Thank you Sarah. I thought it might be overkill but I love holo. So it's nice to see I'm not the only one. I see lots of bloggers putting a matte top coat on all of their manis and I enjoy that. I hope other holo lovers enjoy seeing me turn mine holo. :-)
