All that Glitters

Last night I had a plan when I sat down.. this was not it at all.

Funny how that works :)

I may go for my original plan again tonight if I have time.

I started this out with a base coat and then a thick coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust. I would not have even bought this polish had a friend not had it and I realized how awesome it is.  It is like 1000's of little diamonds all over your nail.. Pictures DO NOT do it justice. even though I tried to get how shiny it is.  I then did a gradient with China Glaze Liquid Crystal. This again.. so shiny.. I loved it just the way it was but I just can;t leave stuff alone.  So I add Orly Mysterious Curse (found this one on clearance at Sally's YAY!!) with a striping brush and with a dotting tool added some little dots along the strips.  

This is a fairly easy look.  The hardest part was the getting the glitter gradient to fade. I did this free hand with the bottle crush because a sponge just didn't work at all.

I am not 100% crazy about the strips so tonight I think I will take those off leaving the glitter and try out my first idea and see if I can get it on my nails as I see it in my head. :)

Don't forget about he nail art contest I am going to be having when my facebook page reaches 200 fans.
