Got a request in to throw some peace signs and glitter on the nails — so put ‘em both together!  I’d already been running around all week wearing China Glaze Electric Beat (muted sort of pastel blue, the kind that can swing bright for a colorful mix or just be a striking non-neon-in-your-face blue all by itself, if that makes any sense).  So this afternoon while waiting for files to download/upload I went in with some black acrylic paint to add partial peace signs.  Partial because trying to make perfect full circles makes me nuts and black paint because I wanted a background for glitter to pop against.  Plus painting in the shapes first makes it easier to guide the glitter around.  So for the glitter, I used those little Nail Star pen/striper combos (striper tip — totally awful applicator, but it’s glitter, so whatever) and went over the black with a few different colors and layers to fill in as much as I could without overshooting the edges too much.

Thanks for the idea glitter-peace-peoples, it was nice to play with glitter on a rainy afternoon!

  2. This is so lovely, the different kinds of glitter makes it so vibrant and almost “alive” – well done!

    Thanks ladies! I like that it’s peace signs without being all in your face about it — you really had to look at the nail to see what was going on with the glitter.
