Reaching for a Glitterier World


♥ Welcome to Glittering Awesome, a blog of nail art, hair dye, hair dos, makeups, and general cutesy experiments. ♥
Lady K decided to stop flooding her blog with her attempts at these as she became more and more determined to learn glitter-lore, and lucky her, cause Lady H joined up in this cause and now brings her knowledge and experiments to the table too! There may even appear fashion advice over time!
We would love to accept and questions, advice, and even challenges you may wish to send our way, and encourage everyone to click that ask button!

31 Day Nail Challenge, Day 31:  Recreate Your Favorite Challenge

This is a recreation of Day 24, Inspired by a Book's stained glass nails.  The book was The Glasswrights’ Apprentice by Mindy L Klasky.  If you’ve never read it, I highly recommend it!  :D  I was going to do one of Lady H’s challenges (her thyme nails and her silver + gold splatter nails were glorious and I still plan on such,) but for this one in partucular I had gone on about wishing to one day own a UV lamp and do again, and as I took so long to get to this day that I now DO own a UV lamp… Here they are!  I got my fresh bulbs in the mail yesterday (AFTER OVER A MONTH OF WAITING AND ONE WAS BROKEN, THANKS BORNPRETTY >.<) and sat to sculpting and painting IMMEDIATELY.  And it took 12 hours.  I’d completely forgotten how long the level of detail this design requires takes on my off-hand O.O  If ever again I say I’ll do stained glass nails, kick me.  Hard.  

But FINALLY the last day!  This challenge has actually taken… 503 days.  This is not to say that’s anyone’s fault but my own.  Even I am shocked by my slowness most times.  After Lady H posts hers officially (that she did back before CHRISTMAS) I will be consulting with her for the best way to post all of the links for all of the days for both of us :) 

-Lady K, the Slowest of the Slow.

Nails inspired by Peridot (August’s birthstone!)  My little brother and sister are August kids (kids I say, they’ll be 27 this year *facepalm*) 

These are based on a lump of raw peridot on a quartz base, with the gems representing the cut forms.  If anyone hasn’t noticed by now, many of my favorite things in life are rocks.  I have a great collection as old as I am, one which I plan on expanding this weekend even.  I can’t resist rock-themed nails (even though I’m sure in a few days I’m going to destroy them by digging in a river for river rocks, that’s beside the point.)  These have been submitted to @nailpornography for the this week’s NOTW :D
