A Mani that Sparkles + Hump Day Blog Hop

Today I'm co-hosting The Hump Day Blog Hop with my sweet friend Liz aka Fitness Blondie. I've followed and loved her almost from the very beginning of my blogging journey. She's had 1 impressive weight loss journey and inspires me daily in my fitness goals. Her blog is one of my favorite fitness blogs. This girl is someone I would call strong, empowering and inspirational. I just love her. I am so happy to be joining her today. Make sure to check her out if you aren't familiar and link up with us below! 

Now lets talk glitter and gold. 2 things that make me happy.

When I randomly created this look as I was playing around with birthday mani ideas, I loved it. I had a lot of questions about it, so I wanted to share. So easy, I promise you can do it too girls. 

Gold Glitter

First up, what I used:

Gold glitter
Sinful Colors Bubbly
Sephora Spark-Tacular!
Sonia Kashuk Golden Ticket

Step by step:

Gold Glitter

1- Paint nails with your base color pick.
2- Paint glitter polish on tips in an up down motion,
covering about 1/3 of the nail.
3- Paint gold polish on tips covering 1/2 of the glitter from one side to another. I did a thinner coat of gold, almost giving it an ombre effect. 

That's it, so simple! You could do any color combo you wanted, pick your favorite colors. If you do this, send me a pic, I'd love to see.

What colors would you pick for yours?

  12. Your nails were so pretty not only in the pic, but in person too! I love that it doesn't have to be perfect, that your line could not be straight and you would hardly notice...that's my kind of mani ;)

  13. Glitter and gold! Two of my favorite things- I have that SK gold polish and it's so pretty as an accent nail- I love how you used it on the tips!

  14. Found you through the blog hop!

    That does look easy.. but I am so Nail Polish Deficient.. I seriously have a problem applying it.
    Not in my genetic code I guess.

    But, I will give this a try!
