Last week I finally received my Martha Stewart Crafts "Essential Colors Glitter Set" in the mail. This amazing 24 colors pack of glitter works perfectly, reaching the effect I was looking for on my nails. Previously, I had used a different glitter (thicker) and I realized that, to be able to obtain the end result I was looking for, I needed to search and purchase a different one. Due to its vast variety of colors, it is very difficult to pick one to use at a time. This time, I decided to use a nail polish i purchased a while ago and have not had the opportunity to enjoy it yet. This light sky blue is perfect when looking for a change from the regular pink summer colors. Lapis of Luxury, by Essie, is light and subtle with a hint of purple. In order to reach the full potential of the polish, you must apply 3 coats. However, I do not like it when my polish chips quickly, so i decided to apply only 2 coats and it ended up looking a big faded but still adorable. Similar to my previous glitter post, Think Pink!, I used the same methods to apply the glitter on my accent nail, resulting in this beautiful combination of blues.
