Glittery Accent Nail

I love love love to paint my nails with one glittery accent nail. I usually paint my nails a dark charcoal gray with a silver glitter accent nail. This time around I changed it up with a beautiful bright blue and a pink/purple glittery accent nail.

For the blue color I used two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Blue It. For the glitter accent nail I used Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Rockstar Pink. Rockstar Pink is a really pretty pink/purple/blue/red/silver glittery nail polish. It's an extremely versatile glitter color that can match just about any other color you'd paint your nails. While I haven't tried it yet, I bet it'd look great over black nail polish as well. I was super excited when I found both of these colors at my local Walmart for only $2!

To achieve the look above, I used Nail Tek  foundation II for a base coat followed by two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Blue It on every nail and two coats of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Nail Color in Rockstar Pink on only the ring finger of both hands. I then used Orly Won't Chip as a top coat. Muy bonita!!

What color do you like to paint your nails??

  1. I love those deep blue nails with or without the glittery one. But the glitter was fun and the purple really went with the blue. I just think glitter in general needs to come back in vogue!

  2. I'm so into glitter nail polish these days!
