Manic(ure) Monday: Tulle Dress Nails


Do you remember this post where I kind of rediscovered the fact that the things you do without expectations turn out to be the best you've ever done? Well this phenomenon happened to me again. I wasn't sure how to paint my nails and was just thinking about a simple coloured french manicure when the glitter nail polish caught my eye. The result is something I call "Tulle Dress Nails" simply because the combination of transparent nail polish and a bit of glitter makes you feel like your 5 year old self disguising itself as a pretty fairy with a cute sheer tutu or don't you think so?


First I used a transparent base coat and then I painted my tips with the help of sticky tape.



At this point I have to say that this already pleases me quite well. I think that nails have something precious and creative when they're only painted to some extend and you can still see a part of the natural nail.


Then I just added the glitter.





I used Barry M 304 Mint Green and a no name glitter nail polish.

How do you like this manicure? I could imagine that it would also look great with pink nail polish and glitter!
