Spring Renewal - Pastel, Glitter, and Globs
Do you ever wonder how a trend gets started? I mean, who decided it was cool to paint one or two nails a different color than the rest? Did they just run out of polish and think, hey, I don't want to take this off, I'll just put on another color?
I like having accent nails, but it is a rather strange concept, if you think about it. This is Aly's Dream Polish Salmon with accents of China Glaze Sand Dolla Make You Holla.
Sand Dolla is a textured polish. I'm still loving the texture trend, but even if you don't, a nice thick topcoat like Seche Vite will make it smooth, and tends to make the glitters pop, too. Pretty sparkleeez.
Speaking of weird trends, let's stick random things on our nails. Now, you may have noticed that I do tend to stick a lot of random things on my nails. This is because I am a follower. I don't actually look at the world and wonder, 'will it stick to my nails?'
So, here's some microbeads from Finger Paints that I stuck on my nail. Kinda looks like candy.. Easter jellybeans, maybe? Hmm. I wonder if I can get jellybeans to stick to my nails...
