Sparkles On My Nails

I have a new nail polish that I have had much fun with lately.  It is silver glitter, and it makes any color you put it over sparkle!  I bought it to put on top of black for glitzy New Year’s Eve nails.  This look gets lots of compliments, and makes me feel like my nails are an accessory.  They almost look like jewelry.

Excuse the PDA, these were the only photos I could find of my black/glitter nails!
Hee. Hee.

I tried it over turquoise, and it was a fun effect.  I like that it toned down the brightness of the turquoise.

 I don’t wear nail polish often.  I am trying to go more natural and leave chemicals off my body.  I will be talking more about this in coming posts, like what I now use as lotion and face wash.  I love the challenge of finding natural, inexpensive products that are good for the body and our health.

I DO love polished nails for special occasions and date nights.  I also REALLY like my toes polished in the summer, during flip flop and sandal season.  I have fun with toe polish during the summer, but keep them free and naked throughout the fall and winter.

I noticed my health food store had some nail polish that had more natural ingredients, so I will be checking those out soon.  Have any of you tried these?

In the meantime, I will continue to have fun with sparkles, especially if that man of mine takes me out!!

    I LOVE glitter on my nails. Just like you said, I try not to polish too often because of the chemicals but toes are fun because the polish seems to stay on longer and I appreciate my polished nails more when I am not doing it as often.

    I love playing around with my nails too! Sparkles are fun. If you love having fun with nails but don’t like the chemicals then you should check out those fun nail shields. A friend introduced me to They’re adhesive vinyl nail shields and they’re great on toes and last a lot longer than nail polish. Not trying to sell you anything, but just thought of another option to chemicals. 🙂

    loving the black and silver glitter nails. very sassy! actually, black nails are one of my favorites and it’s a color i where quite a bit. there’s a non-toxic nail polish brand from london available here now called butter. it’s a bit pricey but they have great colors. you’ll find it at beauty supply stores and also at places like nordstrom, bloomingdales, etc.

    i’ve been making my own deodorant for over three years now and i absolutely love it! works so much better than any natural brand from the store that i’ve ever tried and i love that i know what’s in it. i also make my own facial cleanser and body lotion; the latter of which is my husband’s favorite. i’m happy to share the recipes with you if you’re at all interested.
