Glitter & Flowers!

Tomorrow I'm going to a wedding & of course had to do something with my nails.  I can't just do a color and leave it alone, I had to do something sparkly.  Unfortunately, my original idea of one stroke flowers wasn't able to be done since I don't have the acrylic paint for it. 

This is the pattern on my dress.

So, what's a nail junkie to do?  Go to PINTEREST!!!  I found THIS and THIS & decided to attempt both in one mani.  I also had the bright idea to do this at 2am while watching episodes of Honey Boo Boo.  I'll just say that show is horrible & that is NOT how all people in the south act. 

I'll stop blabbering & show y'all pics.  I'll tell you what I did after.

I forgot to write this all down, so hopefully I can remember everything.  I used OPI Nail Envy as my base coat & 2 coats of Rimmel Midnight Blue which is an almost black shimmery blue.

Thumb, index, & pinky: I brushed a thin layer of China Glaze Atlantis on 2/3 of the nail then 2 thin coats of Barry M Aqua Glitter(which I recently got from a giveaway on

Middle & ring: I dabbed a bit of Barry M Aqua Glitter on bottom corners of my nail.  Then I took a short nail art brush and used a white Art Deco polish to freehand some flower petals(I know they're 2 diff shapes, that's what happens at 3am).  I took a small bit of OPI Fly and brushed over the white just a little for some multi-colored petals.  I grabbed a dotting tool that had just a point at one end and grabbed the large hex pieces of glitter out of OPI Servin' Up Sparkle & randomly placed them above the flowers. 

I finished with a coat of Gelous & Sally Hansen Insta-Dri top coat.

What do y'all think?  I'm tempted to remove the flowers & stuff and just do a glitter gradient.
