Easy Silver Prom Nails & #TBT

Hey y'all!  Today I have a mani and a Throwback Thursday post all in one.  I'm not 100% sure when prom's start, but I figure it's soon.  So, I'm going to tell y'all a little about mine. :D

I graduated in 1997(I know I'm old :p) My boyfriend at the time was way older & I didn't start dating him until after they stopped selling tickets.  So, I went with my best friend and we shared her date.  For her privacy, I cut her out of the pics.  As you can tell, she wore a red dress, so we were completely patriotic.  Mine was a blue velvet like material & oddly was only around $10.  I also wore it to my Military Ball that year.  Yes, I was in AFJROTC.  At the time, my hair was down almost to my booty and IDK how many bobby pins my hairdresser put in there to keep it up, but it was a LOT.

I almost didn't even go.  Honestly, the only reason I even went is because another friend paid for my ticket and told me she'd kick my buttocks if I didn't.  So we went and had a little fun, leaving shortly after the senior walk.  The 3 of us were 18 or older, so we went to change and headed to the club where I used to practically live from 18-23ish.

Now to my nails.  I can't remember exactly how I had them done, but it was one of the ways I did both.  I did silver to match my shoes.  Also, yes even back then I was obsessed with nail polish and HAD to have pretty nails. They even looked at me funny when I explained how I wanted them & after they LOVED it. 

I'm thinking they were more like the accent nail.  The only difference is they were not only way longer, but it was just plain silver glitter....not silver holo.

What I used:

For 3 of the fingers, I used Sally Hansen Insta-Dri in Silver Sweep and freehanded Models Own Juicy Jules onto the tips.

For the accent nail, I used Nabi Sheer Red as a base, to kinda give my natural nail a little color.  Then I used tape to section off the tip to brush on Silver Sweep and Juicy Jules to the tip.

This was really quick and easy.  Plus, I think the holo glitter makes it better.  If you went to prom, what did your nails look like?
