I wanted something kind of fun for my toes this week. I went with a shooting star look, that I am not totally in love with, but I also am not totally offended by it. Please excuse any messy edges on my toes. I don’t really think anyones feet are that great, but I swear I have particularly gnarly ones, and no amount of clean up seems to work. If you have found the answer to this problem, please share. The only thing I can find to do is clean up as best as I can, and then wear them around. It wears off in a day or two.
I began with two coats of OPI I Sing in Color. It looks really dark in the pictures, and it is…but it is more of a deep plum than black or brown.
Then, on my big toe, I put a gold star stud, and trailed it with some holographic gold glitter. On the teeny toes I put gold microbeads (caviar). The end result is a decent look.
I am wondering how long the microbeads will stay in place once I put socks and shoes on. I guess time will tell. 🙂
Thanks for reading!
I seriously love fall colors, glitter, and toes peaking out of jeans on a nice autumn day. I combined all of these things for a snazzy fall foot look.
I began with a layer of Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in Branch Out on all the toes. That left a nice brown base to work with. Then, on the big toe I put a layer of Sally Hansen’s Complete Salon Manicure in Copper Penny. This polish has copper glitter in circle shapes of all sizes. It added a nice pop.
On the other toes, I used a dotting tool to place a few of these beautiful, diamond shaped, fall holographic glitters. I also sprinkled a few onto my big toe.
While the pictures are a little meh, the results were great. A neutral enough look to go with everything, but sparkly enough to catch the sun on those beautiful fall days.
I love autumn! I got married in the fall, the colors are beautiful, sweatshirts are cozy, and the air always smells so good. I wanted to try to make the perfect fall fingers, so I combined a bunch of glitters and put them on top of a brown nail polish.
I began with Sally Hansen’s Insta-Dri Moracc-go. It’s a rusty kind of color that seemed like a good base for the seasonal look.
Then, I pulled out ten little glitter pots that seemed like a good variety of fall colors. There was a holographic gold, gold, copper, green, burgundy, red, purple, orange, tan, and brown. I toyed with the idea of trying stripes or somehow fading one color into another, but I couldn’t come up with any combination that made me feel like I had hit the spot.
So I used some tweezers to pinch out a little of each and mixed them together. I wish that the sun would have been shining a little brighter when I took these pictures because it really sparked with each of the colors that I used. Then, using a fan brush I applied the glitter to the wet layer of nail polish. I will admit that I began with an attempt to do a faded look with more glitter at the bottom, then thin it out toward the top, but I goobed one up, and thought forget it.
I sealed all of the glitter in with a top coat. The finished product was a glittery fall look, and I was pretty happy with it. With the variety of colors, it matched a tone of outfits, and I got lots of compliments.
These pictures were taken after a few days of wear and they still looked pretty good.
What are your favorite fall looks? Let me know. I am looking for a cute Thanksgiving idea.
