Day 14 - Untried Polish Challenge

So it's Day 14 of the challenge and it's time for a little GLITTER!

Actually, I'll be honest, I'm both a lover and hater of glitter.  I love a little bling on my nails but hate having to remove it.

I've heard that you can use Elmer's School Glue as a base coat and within a day or so it will basically just peel off.  I tried it a few nights ago with a cream polish and it gunked up and ruined the manicure.  I think the trick is to let it really really really dry before you paint over it.  I'll have to try it again and let you know.

Okay for this challenge I used Deborah Lippmann's Lady Sings the Blues.  I know I said before that I am not a big fan of blue, but this really falls in the indigo range.  It has a purple'ish tint like new jeans.

This is one of those that I love in the bottle more than I love on my nails.  The glitter is nice, but not my favorite.

It's a deep blue crelly with micro and med silver glitter.

  1. That is the ONE D.L. I own. I was walking by the display at Ulta and I literally stopped in my tracks. I was on a budget that day, so I put back the two Butter Londons I had, and I am quite happy with this one-at least until it is time to remove. Do you have a tub & brush remover jar? That helps a lot.

    1. Yeah, I kind of did the same thing when I saw it which is funny 'cause I don't like blue for the most part. I did have to soak them off, luckily though it didn't really stain.
