Day 2: Bling!

If there's a polish that spells BLING to me, it's Lacquistry's I Wear My Jewelry On My Nails. I got it recently in the mail, so this challenge had the perfect timing. It has a clear base with masses of tiny silver and holo glitter, holo bar glitter (yay!), and silver holo hex glitter in at least three different sizes.
The base for this mani here is two coats of Catrice Be Indiglow!, except the ring finger, which is three coats of Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Peachy Keen.
For the ring fingers I painted half moons with Essence Crazy Good Times Confetteria, and popped on a rhinestome. For the rest I dabbed on Lacquistry IWMJONM (whew!) on the tips and down the middle of the nail.
IWMJOMN is my instant favourite glitter polish - at least until I get my hands on the rest of my Lacquistry order. It sets flat on your nails, is as easy to apply as a coarse glitter polish can be, and the roughness of the surface isn't anything a coat of SV could not handle. Seriously, I use two to three coats of SV with, for example, China Glazes Eye Candy collection glitters, which are a lot finer texture than this (and the other Lacquistry polishes I've tried out this far).
Oops, this post was more about the Lacquistry polish than my mani... Just to let you know, I'm not affiliated with Lacquistry in any way, and I paid the full price + shipping for this polish and the others. I'm just impressed.
And here are all the polishes I used - just to show you there's more going on than Lacquistry madness here..:

      Rhinestones = the easy way to glam up any mani :)

    1. Thanks, Amanda! I liked your midnight blue design, too. I want to pair this Lacquistry polish with everything!! I think brown or some neons (maybe yellow) will be the next victims of bling... :)
