Nails part 5

This time only one design. It was my first time using craft glitter to do my nails, and I think it turned out pretty good. 
I painted my nails and topped it off with one coat of top coat. Then I tapped the glitter on with a regular painting brush, let it dry and put on another coat of top coat.

Although I love classical and every-day jewelry, I also really into creative and different pieces. Here are some examples that caught my eye.

  Limelight collection by Piaget, cocktail ring Mojito

 T-Rex ring by nOir Jewelry

Two finger sword ring by nOir jewelry

 Snitch necklace. As Harry Potter series fan, I love it.

HP, same thing. I love it.

 I got really into the splashing technique that I recently discovered

 From left to right starting with thumb, the meanings: peace, happiness, beauty, love, moon.
From right to left finishing with thumb, the meanings: destiny, light, water, earth, fire.

I bought a nail art brush and it's amazing. It was so easy to do the symbols, I never would've guessed. This brush is officially one of my new favorite things. Pin It Now!

Nails that I did for my birthday.
I really love this color. It's deep purple although in some light it looks like black. It stayed on for a week without chipping. In the end of the week some tips on my right hand nails wore off, but just a little.
I broke my thumbnail and I had to cut off all my nails. One of my pet peeves is when one nail is chopped off and other are long. I can't stand it so I filed them all off.
