Sparkles for Shaz

So it's officially party season, which means we are bringing out all the glitters and sparkles we can find! A friend of mine requested some serious bling for her 30th birthday party this weekend, to match her super snazzy dress.

For this mani we stuck to the dress's three colours, gold, silver and black. Barry M's Black formed the perfect base, a couple of coats and it's dark, glossy and ready to be adorned. For most of the nails we chose a simple glitter fade, using Model's Own fabulous Goldfinger glitter. I love a glitter fade as it's so so easy to do but adds an element of glamour to any mani. It looks especially striking on a dark polish, so worked perfectly with our black base.

Each hand had a single accent nail where we pushed the boat out a little more. After much deliberation (and convincing that I couldn't form a juggling man out of diamantes), Shaz picked out gold studs and silver diamantes to form an 'S' on each ring finger. I don't often mix gold and silver together, but we were inspired by the dress and both loved it when it was finished.

What are you planning for your seasonal manis? I can't wait to try out more party season nails! Bring on the bling...
