Glitter has always held a special place in my heart. I bedazzled everything from my notebook to my scrunchies (yes, this dates me!) in school. Now that I'm an "adult" I still like to find ways to sneak a little touch of glitter in!
I fell in love with Essie's "A Cut Above" - it was perfect. Large chunks of hex glitter with plenty of pink round glitter". It was a little too "glitzy" for my work place (BOO) but...I still wanted to find a way to sneak it into my manicure!
Then I found Essie's "Turquoise and Caicos" - a beautiful turquoise bright enough for a new spring manicure, but still muted enough to wear to work.
I started with a base layer of 2 coats of the Turquoise and Caicos - pretty, but still needed a little something.
I had seen the reverse french tip, but had never tried it on myself before. I loved how this turned out! I used a toothpick to manipulate where some of the glitter chunks went, but the final product was pretty cute - and I was able to get my love for glitter in there too!
The final look I ended up with was a french tip of "A Cut Above" on each nail, and a reverse french on the ring finger. Subtle enough to be office appropriate, but more fun then a muted mani!
