A Manicure Fit for a Trophy Wife
As soon as I saw that Essie made a nail polish called 'Trophy Wife,' I knew I needed to get it. Then I saw the color and was disappointed with it. I'm a pink girl (go figure, right?) and not into blues. Then came Hurricane Irene. We were in Virginia Beach on vacation and killing time in Target waiting for the electricity to be turned back on at our rental. And while strolling through the nail polish isle I saw this baby and knew I needed to get it.
This is 2 coats of Essie 'Trophy Wife' and I used my glitter sticks from Martha Stewart on top. I use a simple paint brush (from a $5 bag of them from Michael's,) squeeze some onto a paper towel, dip the brush into it, and simply swipe from the cuticle up. By the time I reach the tip of my nail, the glitter is distributed in a gradient manner.
What do you think?
