One of the things that I love about being part of the Digit-al Dozen is that the challenges pull me out of my comfort zone time after time. So many different styles that I have never tried before but was 'forced' to for a DD challenge. Which brings me to this month's challenge, all that glitters. I think a few of you will agree that for the most part, indie polish makers aren't really doing glitter polishes now. There are a few and some are still doing micro glitters and crellies with glitter, but not nearly like back in the day like maybe 5ish years ago. Well, 'back in the day', I bought a lot of those glitters but for one reason or another, they have taken a backseat to other new fandagled polishes like flakies, all the holo's etc so I just haven't been wearing glitters that often. This months challenge had me shopping my stash and I discovered I have some really cool glitters that haven't seen the light of day for some time...or if at all. Hopefully I will remember to bring out more glitters even after the challenge is over as I had a lot of fun doing some of these and was really happy how they turned out! Here's what I came up with for day 1!
Started with a base of two coats each of OPI Black Onyx and Nicole by OPI Hit the Lights.
Added a couple coats of Elevation Polish Huangshan on accent nails, as well as fished out extra glitters and placed as needed.
Stamped using an image from Marianne Nails Professional n.3 using FunkyFingers Dark Knight.

Ms. Cindy didn't get any glitter because it just takes too long to remove it and I didn't use a peel off base but I used the same colours and stamp and really liked how it turned out too!
Topped with KBShimmer Clearly on Top to finish.
