Hello lovlies! I hope that you all had a great week and will have an even better weekend! How's that for some Friday optimism? Haha!

(And yes, there was a small issue yesterday, where this posted accidentally. I finally got around to changing my time zone after our move and, for some reason, it posted my already-scheduled post for Friday. #technologyishardguys)

Here's what I used for this week's mani:



And here's what I did:


Two coats of Queen B (which has skyrocketed to the top of my favourite blurples as I can't seem to stop using it, haha) on each finger except my middle, which has two coats of Gossip Over Gimlets. Then, with a flat nail art brush, I applied three (yes, three) half coats to all the Queen-y nails three two full coats over Gossip. Finishing with a coat of quick dry top coat (because I was going for an "all the glitter" kind of mani this week, ha!)

The glitter of this mani, guys. THE SHINE! It's one of those manis that is literally blinding if you're in direct sunlight. In this picture, my middle finger looks about one tenth of the glitter strength in real life. Honestly, there's probably a chance that I'd blind an astronaut, if the angle was right. Haha!

And here's a little hint if you ever want to wear three coats of hex glitter: Make sure that you have a bamboo stick for taking it off! Otherwise, you'll be scrubbing with a soaked nail polish pad foreeeeeeeever.

Looking forward to seeing what pretty nails everyone is rocking this week!

Well, I'm just hoping that you didn't give anyone the finger this week. They'd blinded! Seriously though, I love this mani!! Blurple, glitter, sparkle...You've got it all girl! I missed you Nail Filers! I'm sorry I've been only a part timer lately. <3 Have a great weekend!

BLINDING AN ASTRONAUT!! I can't even--thanks for making me spit coffee all over my computer. This manicure is gorgeous. I'm all about all the glitter all the time-I just don't do it as much as I'd like (as in-ALLTHETIME) because I hate the process of taking it off (yes, even with the aluminum foil trick). Seriously-so pretty though. And I might need to get my hands on queen b!

Gorgeous! Everytime I see Paris I'm struck by how pretty it is, I should wear it more often:-)

THAT is definitely a New Year's Eve mani! :D
I'm off to troll your Pinterest for inspiration....my nail brushes are here, but I am uninspired (nail ennui?) and need to get on it.
Maybe glitter....hrmmmmm....

I love all three of the polishes you used for this one Jennie! Paris reminds me of a pearlescent vanilla cake for some reason. I am curious about your 'flat nail art brush' - and now I want to see it. SHOW ME!

I really like that purple. It reminds me a bit of 1 of Essie's polishes. I have it, but I can't seem to find it right now.
