So, I read about this manicure on my friend Phyrra’s blog Decorative Diva. She linked to Nail Juice’s tutorial, which I followed.

This is one of my favorite parts of how blogs work. Spread the love, and the nail polish. At least in this instance.

It didn’t take long. I used China Glaze’s Bermuda Breakaway (that color is getting a lot of screen time in my world right now) for the tips and Sinful Color’s Daddy’s Girl (a sheer but buildable purple microglitter) for the layering of color.

It’s far from perfect, obviously. But that’s okay because this is the first time I’ve tried this. It looks totally passable in person – in fact, this might be one of those things that you just cannot capture adequately in a photograph.

Maybe I need a paler sheer….
