Tuesday Nailtique: Glitter Nails, perfect when traveling

I just got back from a 10-day trip to the West Coast.  We had a blast visiting Portland & Crater Lake in Oregon, driving through the redwood forest and down the Pacific Coast Highway to San Francisco and finally ending up in Sonoma.

At the end of a trip we were attending a wedding so I had a small conundrum on my hands…how do I keep a manicure looking good for 10 days?!?  The solution….glitter nails.  Paint them before you leave, bring a bottle with you and touch up on your travels.  Easy!!!

Here are some great glitter nail inspirations.


Gold is neutral enough for every day, yet classy for special occasions.  Inspiration from TheTrunkBlog.com


Silver or multi-colored is like gold, neutral but fancy for special occasions.  DimeonaDime.com gives great tips on how to remove glitter polish when you’re safely at home.


You can also try a glitter ombre.  Just don’t forget to bring a sponge with you!  Here’s a tutorial from HelloSunshine.com


Or try a reverse ombre with a clear basecoat and more glitter towards the tips.  Inspiration from ShoesShirtsAndOtherSht.com.
