A Little Bit of Glitz and Sparkle

Affiliate Links

Hello Loves.  Sometimes a girl just needs to sparkle!  I was in the mood for a little (or a lot) of bling, so I paired a few different products for this glitzy and girly manicure.
Crystal Manicure

I started with a base of Revel Nail Gel Polish in Fierce. Check out my full Revel Nail review here to see a full swatch of this color.  I then topped the thumb, index and pinkie nails with FingerPaints Gel Polish in Chica Chica Boom from the Taste of the Tropics collection. 

For the accent nails, I combined SS4 and SS5 crystals from Born Pretty Store with these awesomely tiny studs from In The Nail Room.  I've been searching for teeny tiny studs like these for a while now, so I was super thrilled to finally find them.  Be sure to check out the selections at In The Nail Room.  They have some incredible Japanese nail art pieces, including these 1mm studs and teeny silver leaf studs.  Here's another shot that shows the pieces a bit better.  They are a little pricey ($2.50 for 25 or $7.50 for 90), but these little babies are 100% reusable!  I usually soak off half way, then remove the pieces from the gel and re-wrap.  Any gel left on the studs can be removed by soaking them in acetone.

One more photo - just for fun.  I'm always amazed at how Tammy from OhMyGoshPolish manages to juggle so many polish bottles in her pictures.  So I tried it with the two colors I used in this mani.  Needless to say, I failed.  lol  This is not a graceful pose at all, but it was fun to try so I'm sharing it anyway.
