Monday Blues: Glitter Tips

Guess what? It's Monday again!
And you know what that means? Means it's time for blue nails again!

Have to admit, I'm starting to wonder what I'm gonna do when I run out of blues? Might create my own polish then and show it off, hehe.

But on to today's show and tell. We have Manhattan No.78C and W7 Cosmic Blue.
I don't know if you remember Cosmic Blue from Here and the Manhattan polish from my little polish pile purchase (phenomenal alliteration!) Here.


The first time I tried putting glitter on my tips, it was with a purple polish and glitter and I ended up staring at my hands all day. Then I forgot to do it again and while looking through my stash today, I saw these two polishes and realized none had been tried on yet and both could work well together,so I figured 'why not!'

As it happens with some blues, they don't photograph like in reality so I had to tweak it in Photoshop. I will say it again, I never photoshop nail photos,because the main idea is to show the actual color of it, not to make it look surreal but pretty. But in this case, I needed to edit it for it to look like the real deal.

Of course, I then became artistic and used the sun as a prop. This is what it looks like:


Here's a picture of the polishes I used:  W7 Cosmic Blue and Manhattan No. 78C



The W7 is a mostly blue glitter,but has some silver and gold glitter flakes scattered around. As for the Manhattan polish, I was surprised to see it looks much more blue than in the bottle.

I really like the combo and will probably do it again. Have you ever played around with glitter on your tips?


Here's the other lovely ladies who turned blue today and their pretty nails:
