Tipped with Glitter

I hope you're enjoying your Tuesday! I'm starting a new weekly challenge called Monkey See, Monkey Do. Its a nail challenge for Monday (though mine will be on Tuesday since I already do one for Mondays) where we take inspiration from or recreate a mani done by someone else. Anything you see on blogs, Facebook, Pinterest, or anywhere else online. 

I was inspired by this gorgeous mani I saw on Pinterest from The Nailasaurus. I would have never thought to pair gray and glitter together. I'm not even a gray fan. I have this polish (my only gray) for nail art. For my nails, I started with a base of Julep Dendrie. Its a lovely gray creme with great application and is opaque in two coats. Next I sponged on Jordana Gemstones. I've found that for glitter, it is best to paint the polish on the sponge. I absolutely love this combination. Its given me a whole new appreciation for gray polish. I actually love it. Now I don't have any colors I won't wear. I only shied away from brown and gray.

Julep retails for $14 at Julep and Sephora. Jordana Specialty Glitters retail for $3 at Jordana and Kmart
