Glitz & Glam

Hello lovelies! It's the beginning of January and the festivities are coming to an end, meaning back to the textbooks, calculators, formula sheets, and essays for me! I wanted to kick this month off with a sparkly and celebratory manicure, in hopes of giving myself some motivation for the last stretch before second semester begins. This month, I have 4 diploma exams so chances of me posting frequently are slim, but I will try my best to do some swatches over my exam break. 

That being said, when I went to visit my relatives for Christmas, my grandma gave me some polishes that she received from a salon owner. As soon as I opened the box, my eyes were drawn to the gorgeous silver capped silver polish, which was upon later inspection OPI's DS Radiance. I haven't ever bought any DS polishes, and I received one as a gift a long time ago but it's unfortunately an unflattering color with my skin tone. Suffice it to say, I was pleasantly surprised when I saw this in the box of goodies!

More pics after the jump!

And now... here's where the fun begins!

I decided to bling it up a bit with China Glaze's Techno. I intended to do a gradient manicure but it didn't work out so well.. so let's just say this is some layering instead!

I'd like to get my hands on some more chunky glitters that I can use for layering, it really is the fastest way for me to add depth to my nails. Anyway, hope you all enjoy! 

Till next time,
