Once again I hope you aren't sick of my mermaid nails as, boy, do I have another doozy for you tonight. The glitter set I got off ebay has all manner of sizes of hex glitter which makes my life easier and hard depending on the glitter size. The glitter that caught my eye was a sparkly red but I've been afraid of using it for mermaid nails as the glitter isn't exactly the largest, being even smaller than used for my electric blue nails. Not being one to back down from a challenge, I put on back to back episodes of Family Guy, got my toothpick and got to work. I have full instructions on how to do this here.
OMG am I glad I did. The result is the most sparkly, true-to-life version of Dorothy's Ruby Slippers I've ever seen. I actually had a group of girls at American Apparel gasping over how sparkly these are. Sure, it took over an hour to do but soooooo worth it. A England Perceval makes the perfect base as well, as both are slightly brown-toned reds.
The Verdict: Sigh, these came out so well, I don't know how I can possibly progress from here. At least I did the Wizard of Oz proud :)
