I was mesmerized. I dreamed of the day when I could be so daring as to pull something like this off. Luckily for me, New Years Eve was right around the corner and I vowed to try something completely out of my comfort zone. So last Friday I had Sarah recreate the look for me using 1 coat of Gelish Water Field over 2 coats Shellac Asphalt.

I'm the girl that has 30 Essie polishes all in slight variations of pale pink. I am a fan a big bright pinks, deep purples, all shades of grey and blue, but not glitter. This year I found the perfect red in Shellac Decadence, check it out here, and every time my fingers popped out of a glove or from beneath a sleeve I was excited at how gorgeous the color was (even after 2 weeks).
Every time I see my uber-glittered hand now, I get slightly startled. Maybe I should have started with just the ring fingers.
All this being said, it was exactly what I asked for and Sarah did a magnificent job, as always. The concept worked perfectly for exactly one night. My problem is that this mani will last another 2 weeks. So I will be attempting to paint over it with regular polish. I'll let you know how it goes.
If you're a glitter lover, though, this is the perfect decadent, disco ball manicure. I'd love to see it. Just not on my own hand.
