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 :)

Adventures in Gel Polish, try 4:   Clear with Gold Hexagons!

Layer of bonder, layer of clear, layer of clear into which I spent many hours arranging hexagons by hand in before setting, a thick layer of clear to be sure, and then top coat.  Sounds so simple, right?

Took me 8 hours to do.  THE RESULT THOUGH.  IT IS SO DAMN SPARKLY.  This is DEFINITELY something I couldn’t pull off with regular polish (unless I’d used super glue or something) just due to how long it took me to set each individual piece.  In the pictures I took at the local Tex-Mex restaurant you can really see the sparkle, but you can’t see how smooth they came out so I tried taking side-view pics under my stupid florescent lights at home.   >.>   It really reminds me of those counter tops people make by lining up pennies and lacquering em to hell and back ;D

I can’t stress how shiny these are.  I can’t wait for the sun to come out so I can bling in it.
