3 step matte glitter mani.

Happy Sunday or Happy Easter.  Whichever salutation you are using today, I hope you are having a fab day!!

Here is my Easter day mani...kind of.  I had planned on wearing this today but took it off last night because I wanted something else!

I started with a base of 2 coats of Quirius Lucy Diamond.  This is a gorgeous sky blue with just a very light touch of fine shimmer.  This is without a top coat.

Next, I added some glitter...

2 coats of Ulta Pinata Yada-Yada.  I am assuming this is meant to be a Happy Birthday knockoff.  I don't have HB to compare it to but I do like the look of this colorful, multi-sized glitter.

And the finishing touch...

1 coat of Essie Matte About You.

I saw a similar mani on MUA a few weeks ago and decided I had to duplicate it!  Icannot for the life of me find it again though to make reference to.

Have a great upcoming week and I hope to have a few more new posts up this week!
