Glitter nails

Hey y'all!  I'm sorry I've been slacking the last few days.  I try to post something every day but sometimes it's just impossible to do.  I haven't even painted my nails since Friday, it makes me sad.  I have some new polishes to swatch, so hopefully I can do that today.

Today I am going to share something I did last week.  I've seen a few posts lately with Rock Star Nails and I've been kind of obsessed with them.  No, I didn't do Rock Star Nails, I'm not that cool.  But I did try using loose glitter for the first time.   I got this green powder glitter from Julep when I got my first (and last) box a while back and this was the first time I'd been inspired to use it.

You can't tell too much, it as REALLY sparkly.  I used Revlon Jaded as my base and when it was still wet I pressed my finger into the little glitter jar and Voila!  

I put a couple of coats of clear coat on it and honestly I didn't like it as much as I did without it.  I wasn't shiny but it was SO sparkly!!!!  

I really want to get some more glitters now, I'm going to have to make a trip to Michaels soon!  Have you ever used loose glitter like this?  What did you think?
