Nails of the Week #77: Some Kind of French

I'm not sure what I was thinking when I did this. I can tell you I had an entirely different manicure in mind that involved white and pastel colors but somehow we ended up with glitter and blood red. Yeah I'm just as surprised as you are. I definitely had a vague idea in my head how I wanted this to end up and I'm not quite sure it got there but it's still unique I guess.

This lovely blood red color is Essie's In The Lobby. This color is one of my favorites, it's lovely and easy to apply and super glossy without a top coat so naturally I still pop on that top coat for a dazzling look. Using a dabbing motion I applied Color Club in Magic Attraction for the glitter tips. Unfortunately this isn't my favorite glitter however I think my favorite Sugarplum Fairy has died though, it's extremely dry and clumpy for some reason and the revive drops haven't been helping. The subtle difference between the two is that Magic Attraction is a pink multi holo while Sugarplum Fairy is a purple multi holo. I know, barely a difference but I just like the cooler look instead. Anyways, and since I knew it wouldn't be a clean line on the tips I then added some white dots with my trusty Color Club Duo Pen in White. I'm not sure what I'm going for, tribal rocker? Who knows.
