I have to admit that I am addicted to nail polish. Over the years I have collected quite a few colors. Okay, a bit more than a few but I am sure you can relate! There is something exciting about buying a new polish and the prospect of trying something spontaneous, something different. Your nails are a great way to express yourself with minimal commitment and it's tons of fun! Nails are a truly fabulous way to show your true colors (bad pun alert!!!) Every Sunday I find the time to give myself a manicure. It's a ritual. I prefer to do my own nails opposed to going to a salon for a few reasons. One being that I am extremely antsy and hate to sit down for long periods of time, two being that I feel like I can experiment more when I am doing them myself. It's definitely harder to convey what you want through explanations sometimes and then you feel disappointed when it doesn't come out exactly how you envisioned it in your mind. I am a take charge kinda gal. I get a lot of compliments on my nails so with that being said I present to you the first of many Mani Monday's.
With this particular manicure I was inspired by the big bauble ring I am wearing. I just love the way it sparkles and wanted to incorporate that into my nails. My favorite kind of glitter polish is any one that has hexagonal glitter in it. The hex shaped ones give a really eye catching effect. I also shaped my nails a little bit pointier than usual. I have very round nails naturally so a round almost stiletto shape suits me the best. I also think they are flashier and that is a must with this look!
