FBFF ~ DIY Manicure

Hello lovelies!!!  Happy Friday!  Today is FBFF and the lovely Miss Rockwell at Lifestyles of the Thrifty and Shameless chose this theme of our DIY manicures! Make sure to check out everyone's linked up on her site!

I've wanted to do a glitter ombre mani for some time, so I kinda half-assed my way through it, and am stoked on the results!

I did two coats of a pinkish nudish neutral, OPI's Dolce de Leche and let it dry for a few hours.  Then I used a purple-y blueish glitter, Pure Ice's Cheatin.  I free handed "french mani tips", since I wanted it to be messy and ombre.  I then wiped most of the glitter polish off the brush after dipping it in the bottle and brushed downward from the tips about two-thirds the way down to smear some pieces of glitter, giving the whole ombre look.  Check out how it came out!  What do you think?

This was so fun and such a fabulous idea!  I can't wait to check everyone's out.  Thanks to Miss Rockwell for coming up with such a terrific idea!
