I am a mom and a nurse (among many things). For these reasons though, I have very rarely had long or manicured fingernails. There is just no point. But the dream was always there... because polished, shiny nails meant that you took care of yourself.
In my quest to be better about maintaining some sort of level of pretty, I decided that I would focus on my toes. See finger nails were tough to keep up, but toe nails seemed more reasonable. And besides, nail polish doesn't come in sizes. It doesn't require a fitting or adjustments. It's just pretty and accepts you always, just the way you are. Pedicures are unconditional love.
I began looking for a good color, looking at toe after toe for just the right shade. Browsing the Sephora store, I found it! It is by ILLAMASQUE called Collide. I was EXCITED!
...then a little sad. $18.00 for 1 bottle of this liquid gold. I tried to walk away. It was too much. But I couldn't get this color out of my mind. I splurged.
It doesn't chip, it goes on with a single coat, absolutely shiny and lovely.
A small price to pay to feel wonderful! (total cost $28.00 if you include the $10.00 Target flip flops)

I am entering the Moxi Fab World All that Glitters is Gold challenge. To create the glitter effect, I used some 1/2 inch scor-tape, and sprinkled gold glitter directly on top. EASY and mess free...SCORE.
So basically paint your toes and glitter up your cards...it will make you feel fabulous!
