Olympic Fever - Part Deux

Hiya!  I'm officially on vacation for 10 days and because I don't need to see people every day, I don't normally do my nails.  But because I'm super paranoid they are going to break with no polish, I've done my nails as usual.  Today's mani is the second part to yesterday's mani, 2012 Summer Olympic Fever.

I've often wondered if nail artists that do super complex nail art on their non-dominant hand, skip their other hand.  I've done this a couple of times, especially my munchkin nail art, there is no way I would have been able to get that detail on my right hand! Or I end up doing something easier on my right hand, but that matches my left.  Yesterday's mani wasn't overly complex, but I'm a little anal and like things perfect and I know it would have been difficult to get yesterday's design on my right hand.  So here's what I came up with for my right hand, super simple, but I love this no name gold glitter I got from Sally's - the ones in those super tiny bottles.  I only picked this up because I thought I would use it for yesterday's mani, but ended up not using it, but I really love it over bright colors!

  1. I'm really digging the glitter topper. It really changes the look of the mani.

    1. Thank you!! I'm usually not a big fan of glitter because of the pain to take it off and put on. I usually struggle with applying glitter evenly, this one was surprisingly easy to apply! WOOT WOOT!
