Black Glitter Tips Manicure

Filed under: I Love Makeup!,Manicures and Pedicures — Laura Moncur @ 9:02 am

Black Glitter Tips Manicure from Pick Me!I have been shockingly pleased with the Sinful Colors Black on Black nail polish. It goes on well and covers much better than an inexpensive polish should. I bought it at Walgreens for only a couple of dollars, so I expected far less from it. It looks especially good highlighted on the tips with the Jordana glitter polishes.

I really did this manicure as an experiment. I was going to try to do a matte black with shiny tips, but at the last minute, I chickened out and just did glitter tips instead. I’m glad I did, because I’m really pleased with this manicure.

Black is such a hard color to work with and if I mess up at all, it’s really hard to get off my cuticles and skin. I think I’ll try this kind of manicure with a softer color and see how it turns out.

I’m surprised at how fun just playing with fingernail polish can be. It feels like a little bit of art that I get to do and enjoy for the brief moment before it is obliterated by all the physical things I do with my hands every day.

  2. U did a beautiful job on this manicure! Looks as if u gradiated the glitter s bit…if the tip worries u (like ur gonna mess up), tape off so the mani is perfect, and when u removecolorful olish, put some Vasoline on the cutical first, maybe it’ll help with staining the cutical area… it might help with the staining!

    So I Googled, “black polish manicures”, and this beautiful mani popped up…I v ould very possibly do a glitter gradient instead! What a beautiful msnicure this Is! I have tons of colorful glitter! Beautiful hands, beautifull manicure!
