31DC2013 Day 22: Inspired by a Song (Lose Yourself to Dance)

Inspired by a song! Today was another one of those challenge days where I was completely uninspired. My first thought was to do some palm tree silhouettes over a sunset gradient to represent Will Smith's "Miami," and while I actually completed a full version of the manicure, I wasn't thrilled with the way it turned out. Luckily, Miss Rebecca came to my rescue, suggesting that I mimic the sparkly suits from the music video for Daft Punk's "Lose Yourself to Dance." You can't go wrong with crazy amounts of silver and glitter, so I went for it!

By the way, you NEED to look at Rebecca's "inspired by a song" nail art for today. Brilliant.

Here's a still from the music video. SEE THE SPARKLE!?

I used 4 polishes to create this look. Here they are, in order:
- Zoya Trixie (2 coats)
- China Glaze Glistening Snow (1 coat)
- Nicole by OPI Stars at Night (2 coats)
- Finger Paints Santa's Magic (1 coat)

There is so much holo glitter in this manicure... no matter which way I turn my nails, it's always catching the light like crazy. BAM.

One can never post too many pictures of glitter.
