Stained glass glitter placement + easy removal!

Five hours and a lot of snapple crack later... came these nails. These took the longest to do of any glitter placement I've done (not that I've done that many), but in any case, DON'T THEY LOOK SWEET?! For this week's edition of the weekly nail art challenge (WNAC) I co-host on Instagram along with Kristin of Lacquerstyle and Tracey of MissBellaTracey, the theme is jewel tones and the prompt is stained glass! I actually listened again (I'm on a roll).

These nails were inspired by Glitterfingersss on Instagram (she also has a blog here), but she doesn't make video tutorials so I just had to do the world a service and figure out how to do these myself, then show everyone!

  2. Ok those look awesome. I always love your videos - you have totally inspired me to try new nail art. And I will be honest, I missed seeing Menchie at the end so I am glad she was there today (I mean seriously - my screen name is Amy & The House of Cats so you can't blame me for thinking she is awesome - and Zyler too). I think I am going to have to try to do something like this - but maybe only as an accent nail (I can see me getting tired of it after about an hour and just wrecking the whole thing). But your instructions are really great (on all your videos, not just this one) so it makes me think I might actually be able to do something cool like this.
