Pink Glitter

Ooooo... glitter.  I was in Sephora the other day and couldn't resist this pink glitter, Sephora by OPI It's Bouquet with Me.  I knew just by looking at it that it would take too many coats to be opaque and I'd NEVER get it off, haha.  So I started with a single coat of OPI Meet Me on the Star Ferry.  I think they match up pretty well.  I was considering using a bright pink or a neon purple, but I like this look.  It's kinda in between pink and purple.  And then I tried to do a flower with a Sally Hansen nail art pen, but I failed.  It started out looking fine and the polish was flowing normally, but then it stopped flowing, so I dabbed it once on a napkin and it came back, but as soon as I touched my nail again, all this water pink liquid flew out... OMG!  So I quick grabbed a cotton ball and wiped it off, but some of it had started to dry.  So I tried to brush some acetone over the nail to get it off... I knew it wouldn't take the glitter right off.  You can see a tiny bit on my thumb nail still, oh well.  It blends in under most light.  So I added the white swoopy things with Stripe Rite White.  Problem solved!
