I may be an Australian living in Canada and thus the American election doesn't really effect me but omg I'm happy Obama was re-elected. Sanity prevails! What better way to celebrate than with super sparkly blue glitter nails?
I have a lot of glitter. When I get bored, I go on ebay and search for "glitter", sort by buy it now and price lowest + shipping. You can get a surprising variety of glitter for under $3 delivered. Plus, it takes so long to get here from China I've usually forgotten about it and so glitter surprise! Anyway, I realised I had a lot of blue glitter that would be perfect for a Democrat win. To apply the glitter, I used my usual technique, using Essie Everyday Top Coat as a base for the glitter. Given I was using larger glitter than normal, I modified my routine slightly. For sticking the stars and large hexes on, I applied a thick layer of Essie then used a toothpick to make sure that all the corners and edges of the glitter were stuck down. I applied the biggest pieces first then filled the holes in with the smaller pieces.
The Verdict: I'm really happy with how this came out, especially with how well I managed to get the stars to stick down. Sure, I added what ended up being three coats of Seche Vite on the top but at least nothing is sticking up and catching on things!
