Just Another MANICure Monday: Matte me Crazy with Glitter


I hope that everyone had an awesome weekend. As for me, I didn’t get into much; the highlight of my weekend was Saturday, I spent the majority of the day relaxing in my PJ’s…feel free to judge as you please. LOL 

So with all the free time lounging around I brainstormed a few mani ideas and decided to try out my NYC matte top coat again. This week’s mani is totally inspired by Mimi of Lipgloss and Binky, who also co-host Just Another MANICure Monday with Effie Lynn of LA Lynns. If you’re wondering what Just Another MANICure Monday is, I posted about it here and here. I’ve been having so much fun participating! Well, a few weeks ago Mimi used the NYC matte top coat over polished nails with glitter for her mani…the results were too cute and I decided to give it a try.

I’m not sure if you see the way the glitter just pops against the matte polish but I love the effects, even the hubs thought is was pretty cool. So this look is definitely one I will be keeping in the rotation. And if you still haven’t tried matte polish then you should; the NYC brand top coat is less than $3 bucks and worth every penny. Mimi is the hostess for Just Another MANICure Monday this week, so head over to her blog for more nail inspiration!

Have you tried anything new on your nails lately?

Just Another MANICure Monday

Things have been so busy and crazy around here over the past few weeks, that I have been too exhausted to even polsih my nails. But on last night things seemed to finally calm down and I had a chance to treat myself to a much-needed mani. And if you have been following my blog for a while or seen my pictures on Instagram then you know how much I love a cute mani.

What makes this particular mani even more special is that it is inspired by my fellow BLMgirls Effie Lynn of LA Lynns and Mimi of Lipgloss and Binky. Over the past few weeks the two of them have teamed up and created MANICure Monday, which is weekly blog hop featuring manicures. I absolutely loved the idea and have found so much inspiration that I decided to participate this week. Check it out my MANICure Monday….
