Digit-al Dozen Does it AGAIN: Festiveness with INGLOT Sparkling Nail Art Enamel

 press sample 
Here we are...day 4 of Digit-al Dozen Does it Again! So fun, right? I joined the group in late November last year, so this theme was my first back in December 2012. Can I tell you how über nervous I was? Not only was it my first challenge with the group...it was my first challenge EVER. I was seriously bugging about it. LOL. So first I'll show you today's mani, and then I'll show you my fave from last year along with a little fun fact!

INGLOT Sparkling Nail Art Enamel Stripes

My brain cannot separate "festiveness" from "bling". Why is that? I'm not sure. In any event, my festive mani is incredibly basic. It's simply stripes. But not just any stripes. Again I used products from INGLOT's new Sparkles line. I can't get enough of these things. I used all 14 of their stripers. I'm out of control! Don't they look so pretty all lined up in The Mani Cave?

While application wasn't so tough (I randomly used the stripers to dab on a dense line of glitter), I knew clean up would be a total bear. So before I started, I carefully put Aquaphor around the edge of each nail. When I was done with the mani, instead of using an acetone soaked make-up brush to clean up, I used a thin cuticle pusher to scrape the Aquaphor and excess glitter from around the nail bed. I finished with two coats of Seche Vite. It's soooo crazy sparkly in person. It makes me think of a carnival or a circus...which are totally festive.

So here's my favorite festive mani from December 2012. It's a French manicure using butter LONDON Fairy Cake and Scallywag from their 2012 Holiday Collection. I still love it. (However, my photography was a little "warm" then!) Click the pic to see the original post. And the fun fact? This mani was unexpectedly featured on the I Love Nail Polish facebook page. This is an awesome event for any nail blogger. The ILNP FB page has nearly 180K LIKES! That was a huge boost for me when the blog was just 6 months old and I'm still so grateful. Now, I'm fortunate to know Barbra (the sweet brains behind the ILNP polish) and have even swatched her awesome stuff! :)
