Half Glitter Mani

Yesterday I was feeling so bored on a gloomy Sunday and wanted to try something funky.

I got Nicole by OPI Respect the World as a gift for my birthday and had still never tried it!

Application was not ideal, took 4+ coats to smooth out. At first, I wanted to do a second layer with a bright fuchsia from CND but it did not look right on top of this deep turqoise. 

I perused my collection and found that OPI Simmer and Shimmer from the Burlesque collection had flecks of the same color!

Here is the result! A bit messy still I know, but I think it's kinda cool! I had to use about four coats of Simmer and Shimmer to arrive at the solid glitter. 

What do you think? Would you ever try a mani like this?
