a-england, per usual, knocks it out of the park with Order Of The Garter.  It took 3 coats for a solid finish, but I don’t mind being that extra-layer-patient with something so beautiful — just look at that sparkle!  While the polish was still wet (it doesn’t dry super fast) and my computer was running a backup, I used some loose blue glitter to add extra sparkle near the bottom half of the nail (other that that stray bit that got away from me near the top of the index) then some little silver bullion beads at the tip.  The beads were a little cranky about sitting right on the tip, but it really didn’t take all that long to get done… maybe 20mins?  Anyway, it’s pretty and simple but still interesting to look at, I’m into it!

    Wow! That is gorgeous! Where did you get the tiny silver beads? Did they stay on the nail well, or were they falling off after a while?
