Jazzed Up Nails!

The other day I brought you swatches of Deborah Lippmann Dancing in the Sheets and today I have for you the way that I spruced them up after a couple of days of wear.  I decided to try out my Essie Cosmo PSS Shimmer that I had received in a giveaway from Cosmopolitan Magazine. Cosmo PSS Shimmer is a fine gold glitter polish in a clear base.  I wanted to keep it simple so I used scotch tape to create diagonals across my nails.

This is what my nails looked like before I put the Cosmo PSS Shimmer on them.  They have two coats of Dancing in the Sheets on.

Above are pictures of my nails at various angles after I put Cosmo PSS Shimmer on.  I really liked how delicate the gold glitter looked over the dark polish.  Also it was so simple to do with the scotch tape.  Make sure to  stick the tape to the back of your hand a couple of times before you stick it to your nails so that it does not pull your polish up, or smudge it if you are doing it over recently painted nails.  After looking at these pictures I cannot wait to get my striping tape that I just ordered because I feel that it would have added something really cool to this design.


  1. Beautiful shade! Love the gold glitter on top!
