I (heart) The Jersery Shore

I like to mix things up when I do my nails. It seems like I have an ever-growing list of things I want to try doing with them, but I was surprised to realize that it had been nearly two weeks since I last wore glitter! I mean, I tried one out yesterday, but the undies were all wrong, and it only lasted about 20 minutes..so no wonder I was feeling a little run-down this morning. My internal glitter engine was clearly running low and needed some sparkle, stat!

I decided to wear one of my new glitters, I ♥ The Jersey Shore, from Sparkle Nail Lacquer.

I ♥ The Jersey Shore--which I've also seen as "I (heart)" and "I <3"-- is a clear-based glitter topper with the cutest blue squares, as well as copper mini-bars and pink heart glitters. It also has an amazing shimmer to it, in the form of clear/white micro-glitter, that's really unique and adds a great dimension to this polish.

This is two coats over a nice, basic base of OPI Don't Pretzel My Buttons, which I picked for its sandy colour. I may wear this over a light pink or blue next time, but I couldn't let go of the sand/shore idea for its first outing.

Application was very smooth and easy!  It was a good thickness for spreading and controlling well, and the glitters themselves distributed in an orderly fashion, not clumping or rushing towards the tip. And there are plenty of the little hearts to go around too. Both hands got two without having to fish for them, and it was easy to snag a 3rd for my ring finger here.

Aside from the cute, original glitter mix, I was also happy to get this polish because I have family in and around New Jersey, some of whom were hit by Hurricane Sandy, and for each bottle of this polish sold, Sparkle Nail Lacquer (on Etsy, here) will donate a dollar to the American Red Cross, in appreciation of its efforts after the storm.

  2. I too have a long list of manis to do - and I always forget to wear glitter every once in awhile to keep it simple! I love this combo you did here, it's so pretty! And I love that the Sparkle Nail Lacquer donates a dollar for each bottle sold. I vacation every year at the Jersey Shore - so it's a really big place in my world!
