Golden Rose with Protein - 329 and some bling!

APPLICATION: Smooth
COATS: 2
TOPCOAT?: Yes, after hex glitter added.
SOURCE: www.goldenroseusa.com (wow, they raised their prices since I last ordered!)
COMMENTS: This is definitely one of my favorite manis! The iridescent hex glitter is amazing! It reminds me of pretty tiles in a backsplash, and makes the whole manicure feel marine-like. Definitely check out the video if you can, photos don't do this justice.








And the video (still not as clear as the original, but passable):

  2. Beautiful blue! I love love that hex glitter. Can I ask where you bought it? I wonder if it'd be franken-able or if it'd melt. Thx!

  6. Drool! That is awesome! Those blues/turquoise colors are definitely your best. First thing it reminded me of was pictures of the tropics. THEN I watched the video and "sequined blue dress" came to mind,lol. Thanks for doing some blue w/glitter! OK, headed to Sally's tomorrow to check out the glitters!

  10. Thanks for the comments!

    @Rachel: I bought the glitter in downtown LA at a nail supply store. I got 6 different colors for $2 although they also had a larger set for $5.

    @jaljen: I accept the challenge! I'll try to show how similar glitter can be used in a way that would be attractive on shorter nails as well - sometime in the next week, next mani even... maybe.

Comments are appreciated! I do respond to questions on the comment form if I feel they will be beneficial to others or if the requester has no direct email address. Thanks!
