Quick and Easy Nail Art

It began, as these things usually do, with late-night boredom.  Unable to sleep, I began painting my nails with Trophy Wife, this amazing blue green nail polish from Essie that I'm currently obsessed with.  The name makes me laugh and the color is gorgeous!  Then I spotted a bottle of sparkly silver glitter bomb nail polish that I impulsively bought trying to dupe Chanel Graphite.  It didn't work of course and I had promptly forgotten about it, but when I saw it on my nightstand I decided to try some nail art and painted the tips of my nails with the silver glitter polish in a modified French manicure style.  I just free-handed it; I think the glitter bit would have turned out much better and neater if I had used those French manicure nail guides instead.  But overall, I'm really pleased with how it turned out!


  1. both of those colors are beautiful and similar to shades from OPI's switzerland collection. I've also had my eye on trophy wife, it reminds me of the little mermaid

  2. Me too! I'm obsessed with this color. I'll have to check out the Switzerland collection as well.
