After taking off my gel manicure when I got home from vacation my nails looked pathetic. They were short, weak & just looked genuinely bad. I let them breathe for a day or two then couldn't stand the look of my bare nails anymore. I knew a regular manicure wasn't going to cut it because I had that terrible dent in my nails from where the gels grew out, so of course I grabbed for the glitter & guess what...you can't see it at all! There's nothing a little bit of glitter & some well placed rhinestones can't fix! I especially love the way this chunky glitter gave my nails an icy look when worn over this cool gray polish, very appropriate for the current weather situation in the Northeast!
