    That is super cool! Keep it on :)

    Do you usually do your nails yourself?
    How do you keep them so neat?

      I’ve had a professional manicure maybe three times in my life? So yes, I do it myself. The results aren’t as good as the pro job, but I’m not too bad at it. I hardly ever have time these days though, so I usually don’t have any polish on.

    Fun! I bought my first glitter nailpolish this past Christmas. The only problem – removing it! Mine is by Opi and I don’t know if that makes a difference, but it was the toughest nail polish I’ve ever removed. :[

      I remember glitter polish as being difficult to remove. I guess I’ll find out if that’s the case with this one soon.

        I have one, it’s actually much easier to remove. I think it’s because the glitter is super fine and since it’s sheer the polish isn’t as thick.

    Cute! I (at 32) love glitter polish, such a fun little touch. :)

    I heard a tip about removing it. Apparently the key is exposure time to the remover, so if you soak a cotton pad in remover, then hold it on the nail for a while or wrap bits of foil on your fingertips to kind of clamp it on there for a few minutes, it comes off much easier. I know foil hands sound odd but apparently it works.

      I hope I don’t have to use foil! I’ve never even heard of that. I’ll see how the extra time plays out.

    That’s crazy, I just bought/applied Merino Cool last night. I’m totally digging it.

      It’s a great color. Purple/grey/brown prettiness.

    I 26, and don’t know if I’ll ever be able to give up my glitter polish. I say we wear it until we’re 80!

    i’m nearly 30, and i love glitter in all aspects — it’s so happy and fun! <3

    as far as removal goes, acetone polish remover is the key!

    What timing you have! I was at a doctor’s appointment yesterday where the receptionist’s nails were lavender-glitter, and I could not keep my eyes off them. So pretty and a contrast to my red nails. I leave there thinking “Hmm..must try glitter…or not?”

    Then I see your post. Now I say “YES” to glitter.

    Um, I would slap on another 2 coats of that glitter polish and live up that inner 9 year old. Surely a little sparkle never hurt anyone!

    I am loving the glitter! Last August, I went with glitter and oversized heart sparkles:

    I love it. I like to use Martha’s glitter on my nails. I’ve decided I prefer it on my feet. There’s just something really fun about sparkles.

    Essie Merino Cool really is…cool :) but it is not sold in Italy. Almost any cosmetic house has produced their own version of this “mud” color in the last 2 years, after Chanel’s Particulière. Mine is Mavala Mauve Cendré, which I am also wearing on my toes.

    I also like to paint my nails a different color from my toes; while I usually put Mavala Rose Dust on my nails, today I am wearing Mavala Velvet.

    These bottles are only 5ml so you can stock up on them and never ever have to throw them away half-empty & all dried up.

    I love your nails. They are too adorable! I am also very much into pink glittery nail polish and may have to try your idea!
