China Glaze's Medallion

This is one I never got around to posting but better late than never. The base here is China Glaze's Turned up turquoise. I love glitters but as we all know they are such a pain to remove so i just decided to do the tips since it'd be quicker to remove. So I did CG's Medallion on the tips and then I finished off the manicure with Essence Space Queen over the whole nail which is the delicate glitter you can see on the upper part of the nail. Yay for Glitter!
On a side note Monday's nail art theme for the Polish-acholics Anonymous is going to be glitter bomb... So there is more glitter in my future!! I've got a few ideas brewing, I can't wait to see what our facebook group comes up with!! P.S. if you haven't joined the group go do it, its a great way to interact with other nail polish lovers!

  4. Nice look - good idea too to ease on the glitter removal. I wonder if glitter is any easier to remove if one uses felt vs. cotton pads for removal? I read a lot about folks that use felt fabric for polish removal. Never have tried it. I think I have 4 years worth of cotton pads bulked up at my house from hitting some great sale with a buy 1 get 2 huge packs free.

  5. hmm.. I've never tired using felt! i'll have to hunt some down to see if it's worth it. I bought one of those industrial giant boxes of cotton coil. I mostly use that , i bet that box will last me for years as well.
