Twinsie Tuesday: Glitterbomb

9 Oct

Thumbs down.  Way down.  Today we’re doing glitterbombs.  I’m not a fan of glitterbombs.  I don’t like how rough they can be and I hate taking them off!  Even cleaning up after a glitterbomb is difficult.  Glitter just sticks to everything!

To top it off, I just don’t like my results.  I wanted to go with Halloween-ish colors.  I did a base of Sinful Colors Innocent.  It’s a very slime colored green that stains baaadly!  Like, wow bad!  My layered glitters are Sally Hansen Glitz Gal which is a black-ish colored glitter and Shimmer glitters Carmen (orange) and Caroline (purple).

All layered one on top of another, they just look muddy and the orange, Shimmer Carmen (which I put on last), dominates.  To switch things up a bit, on my ring finger I layered them Ruffian style.  It’s a bit hard to see, but it’s actually pretty cool.  I would probably have liked this mani better if I’d done all my nails Ruffian style.  Because I didn’t want to have to soak this baby later, I took it off as soon as I was done snapping the pictures.  Yes, I had it on for only an hour or so and had horrible staining from Sinful Colors Innocent.  Not so innocent are we?  😉

    I really like how it turned out!! It’s a fun combo of glitters! Though I’m a glitter lover, like you I do hate that it gets everywhere. It’s quite annoying!!!

    This looks so pretty, but I definitely understand not being in love with glitter polish and all the pains that come with it! Oh, and staining is the worst! I still think your nails look pretty fly, if that’s any consolation 😉

      Pretty fly… 🙂 Thank you!

    These glitters really compliment each other beautifully when you lay ’em out ruffian-style! I love the combination of the copper/gold and purple on the others too. But wow, stains after one hour? That’s ridiculous!

      Thanks Elizabeth!

    Well, I’m definitely with you and your feelings towards glitterbombs. But I completely disagree with you about how this turned out. I think the little ruffian aspect makes this very cool! Great job!
