Week 1: "Make It Sparkle" Manicure

New Years weekend I was in Minnesota vising my family.  Away from my large assortment of polish materials, I packed only the essentials: remover, base coat, top coat, and one polish.  That polish that I packed was Wet and Wild's ColorIcon Cost is No Issue from their Ice Baby Collection.  I wanted something loaded with glitter for New Years Eve and this color sat in my untrieds begging to come along.

I'm completely envious of those who can paint their nails with glitter and either do it neatly or do fabulous clean up.  I was moderately neat and clean up was terrible.

Cost is No Issue is a pretty teal glitter with a few dark blue (larger) glitters tossed in.  It's very bright and sparkly but absolutely ravenous for top coat.  I used four coats of Cost is No Issue to get adequate coverage and two coats of Seche Vite but the top glitter.

I'm completely behind one getting the ball rolling this year with posting my manicures.  I usually schedule my posts in advance because, well, life keeps me busy and I don't have time to paint my nails and write a post about it all in one.  I've been gone the last three weekends in a row but this weekend I'm home - perfect for getting caught up!


  1. I love these polishes from WnW! And I'm sure we all know about being behind. Hopefully you have a great weekend with your polishes!

  2. I never grabbed any of these but that sure is a gorgeous color! I can't tell that you didn't clean up nicely - this manicure looks amazing! Your nails have come sooo far - it's incredible to see :)

  3. Kaki: Thank you - I hope I will be able to get a lot accomplished but we shall see.

    Candice: Your kind comment made my day today. Thank you very much.

  4. I love cost is no issue! its such a pretty mani :)

  5. This is so pretty, I have it too but still haven't worn it! So you're quicker than me! I love my polishes so much that I can't seem to take them off and try out my new ones. I seem to buy them 4 times faster than I wear them ;D

    1. Believe me, I have a nice stash of untried polishes! This month I haven't had time to go polish shopping and have managed to get somewhat caught up.
