To put this bluntly, the following manicure makes me think of what might happen if Kiki and Lala (of Sanrio Little Twin Stars fame) threw up all over my nails. I didn't set out to create a Kiki & Lala inspired manicure, but this design quickly turned into what I'll call a Little Twin Stars tribute. (PS: Little Twin Stars is my favorite set of characters from Sanrio, in case you were wondering.)
I wanted to utilize my long-ago discontinued NYX Girls Special Glitter polish (pearl-colored stars!) and I thought it would be fun to do a blue jelly sandwich with them. After I did that, it felt like it needed more, so I decided to add some pink french tips. Those tips didn't seem right, so I covered the tips in frosty pink, and then added a bunch of holo glitter on top of that.
Here are all the polishes I used for this mani:
pa Nail Polish in A134
NYX Girls Special Glitter Nail Polish in White Stars (discontinued)
Salon Perfect Professional Nail Lacquer in Bubblegum
Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Nail Color in Pulled Sugar
China Glaze Nail Lacquer in Shooting Stars
Here's the final outcome:
Is this manicure befitting of a grown woman? Probably not. Could I wear it to work? No way. Do I care? Absolutely not, because that's what the weekends are for! Mr. G thought it was way over the top and my reply? "That's the idea!"
Sometimes, ya just gotta have FUN with your nails. Life's too short to always wear nude cremes, am I right?
Have YOU ever sported an over-the-top manicure, even if it was just for the weekend? I'd love to hear all about it.
