Day 6- Violet Nails with Pink Flair

Sorry, I’ve been at work all day and haven’t had a chance to post until now! I am so in love with this manicure, but alas I will have to remove it soon! I should add that I decided to use the easy glitter removal method with Elmer’s glue so we shall see how that goes. The purple polish I used is from Color Club and unfortunately I don’t know the name of it. The pink glitter is Hungry Asian – I Hate Pink. I love this combination so much!

  1. This is absolutely GORGEOUS, Jayne! (You clean up so well too.. or paint really neatly!)
    I just ordered a few glitter polishes and would love to know how the method goes for you!

    1. Thank you!! Haha, I paint as neatly as I can and then smooth out any edges if I need to. I hate doing clean up, so I try my best the first time. Ooh, what glitter did you order??

    2. Oh okay, me too. Though they don't look that smooth!
      I went on a bit of a 'spree' for my birthday. The glitters I got are China Glaze's Fairy Dust, I'm Not Lion, Nova, and Snow Globe. (:

  2. Gorgeous Jayne!! :) Did you use a tutorial/instructions to do this look or was it totally creative/spontaneous/free hand?

    I definitely want an update on the Elmer's Glue trick ^.^

    1. It was free hand! What you do is you start at the bottom of your nail with as little glitter as possible and then as you work up the nail, just start globbing on more and more glitter! It's the best way to do glitter gradients!

    1. Thank you! Try the gradient with a sponge it's a good way to start or polka dots, those are great too.

    1. One of the bloggers, Julie from Tales of Knit and Nails, is a biologist and she does her nails fairly frequently while doing grad school so maybe you can get away with it?

    2. Hmmm but to start would mean buying polishes... lol more content for my blog I suppose...

      Delete
    3. Once you start...you can't stop...you have to have all of the collections!

      Delete
    4. That is beyond true.. I never used to be a nail polish girl and didn't understand why so many girls had so many polishes. My collection is pretty small since I recently got into it but.. I'm in trouble now.

  8. This is so pretty. I just tried a glitter gradient and it didn't come out half a nice LOL. I just blobbed it on. You have to do an update on the glue method,wear and removal. Did you put the glue in a bottle to?

    1. Thank you! I didn't have an empty bottle so I just poured it out onto a piece of a paper and dipped a spare nail art brush I had into it.

  10. I love the name of the glitter! I read a blog post yesterday I think where the elmers glue held up for four days - I think it was Geeky Owl's blog, its so ingenious I'm surprised no one came up with this sooner!
    I just bought a bunch of CC from Winners then went through Scrangie's posts and found most of their names, still unsure about a few though.

    1. I really love CC polishes, I don't think I have had a bad one yet! I will post about how the glue held up because it didn't hold up for me that well :(
