Glitter, Torrential Rains and School

Sorry for ditching my challenge for a couple of days and sorry that this post doesn't have anything to do with the nail art challenge either, but a lot has been going on. First of all, school just started up again today, which I'm sure many of you know, whether it's you having gone back, a sibling, friend or child. I don't know about you guys, but I'm bummed that summer is over. Did everyone have a good summer though? Do anything interesting? Anyways, Hurricane Issac has made it's way to the province of Ontario and has brought some crazy rains all day. I hope that any of you dealing with the more serious side of Issac are doing okay. But why don't we get to the point. Nail art. And today, I have a tutorial for you. 

I decided for the first day of school I wanted something fun and simple on my toes, so I went with glitter toes. :)
1. First, paint your base colour of polish. You only need one coat here and make sure it is close to your glitter colour. I used Yoga-ta Get This Blue from OPI.
2. Make a little tray out of paper to pour your glitter over so that it won't get everywhere and will make for easy clean up. 
3. Apply a second coat of your base colour and sprinkle on the glitter. Shake off excess.
4. Clean up around your toes and top coat several times. 
There you go, glitter toes! This works the same way for fingers. 


I would love to hear from you guys! Let me know what you think of the blog, the art and most of all, what YOU would like to see on here!
