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!

Nails  Hair  101  How To  

We like asks :)
Wondering why I haven’t been doing as many braids lately?  Hairdresser Cat.  She’s been making every braid take at least twice as long.  Hard to get together a photo-worthy result. :/

Yellow and Red Nails / Red and Yellow Toenails

I fancy my toes being red more than any color I think (more than I fancy my nails being such too,) and so I painted them such.  Then I added some yellow gems (I don’t think there’re many cuter ways to do your small toes than with a single gem each!) 

Well then nothing would do but to have my nails be yellow with red gems since I was gonna do them at the same time :D  A silly 2AM kinda notion, I know, and I’m not sure I like the fingers as much as I like the toes, but entertaining none the less ^_^

31 Day Nail Challenge, Day 29: Inspired by THE SUPERNATURAL (monster style!)

IS it considered cheating that I’m using my googly eyed monsters from this past Halloween?  DO I really care if it is?  ARE fuzzy googly monsters considered supernatural?  WE DON’T HAVE ALL DAY TO BICKER OVER SUCH TRIVIALITIES. 

Lady H has beaten me to completion through day 30 of our challenge, and I WILL NOT BE BEATEN (even though I think it’s too late BUT MORE TRIVIALITIES WILL NOT BE ENTERTAINED! ;D ) 

What’s important here is that these guys are the cutest, most googly-eyed things you’ve ever seen.  That’s what’s important.  

Lady H’s Day 29 was comprised of cool runes!  

WE ONLY HAVE ONE DAY LEFT OF OUR 31-DAY-YET-SOMEHOW-LONGER-THAN-A-YEAR CHALLENGE!  CAN WE DO IT?  WILL WE DO IT?  WILL WE REMEMBER SUDDENLY ONLY COME MAY OF 2015 THAT WE STARTED THIS IN MAY OF 2013?!  ONLY THE FATES CAN SAY (and I wouldn’t blame them at this point if they’d given up caring.)  The only thing for sure is that once we’ve done day 31, I will be making a compilation of links to look at the entire mess :D

-Only Lady K can be this damn crazy, we all know this.

Day 30 - Inspired by a Tutorial

Tutorial:  Vertical Lighting Bolt by Nailside

I have a list of tutorials I want to try out.  This isn’t the most difficult, or at the tippy top of the list, but I like it.  I started a new job recently, and I’m not sure about crazy nails and acceptance yet.  This looks really nice!  It made me happy all day.

Super Easy Loopy Braids :)  Two braids + Three bobby pins!

Included:  My Masterwork Paint Diagrams ;D  

Make a ponytail, divide in two.  Make into two braids, loop one around and over and pin, loop the other around and over and pin, and then pin from the top!  

Looping the second braid UNDER the first and then around on top makes the first braid poke out in a nifty manner—letting both hang loosely makes this ‘do not too tight!

Day 29 - Inspired by the Supernatural

This is a very twisty supernatural reference type thingy.  I’ve seen lots of Halloween-esque manis and stuff with ghosts or fairies, and I didn’t want to go that route.  Violently didn’t want to go that route.  Not that anything is wrong with that route.  It’s just not my route.  So, anyway, I went with futhark and did the first 10 runes.  They were used for magical protection, and is alludes to another Jacqueline Carey book, Supernatural.  Yes, I’m a massive geek/nerd.

I didn’t want to do actual symbols (i.e. what you’d see for a Supernatural Devil’s Trap) or anything because 1) that could be misconstrued and turn out offensive and 2) I only understand a small part of this universe and don’t want to mess around with things I don’t fully understand even if it is to paint on nails.  That’s just asking for trouble.  Call me superstitious, but the amount of things humans can fully explain/understand, compared to the entirety of the universe, would fit in a thimble.  And those aren’t odds I’m willing to mess with.
