Thanks so much to Jordan for sending me this idea! I had never heard of “Glitter Toes” before but I guess it’s a new pedicure craze where they put this super glittery gel on your toes & it lasts for months or something crazy like that. I can’t say these will last for months (unless you like that trailor park half chipped look) but they should make it until your New Year’s Eve celebration. I mean, can you think of a better opportunity to sparkle a little extra?! That’s why I figured this would make a perfect project #6 in the ‘30 for $30‘ glitter series.
You’ll notice I used my sisters as models, this is because I have crazy long monkey toes & refuse to document them on film.
You’ll need: base coat (optional but I think it makes polish last longer), polish in similiar shade to your glitter color, clear top coat, MS glitterStart of by painting your toes with a base coat. Next working with one foot over a paper plate to catch excess put one coat of polish on one foot. Sprinkle liberally with glitter. Allow to dry well & then repeat with other foot. Give toes 2 good coats of clear top coat allowing plenty of drying time between coats. I found the easiest way to get off the extra glitter was to let their toes dry completely (we baked cookies in the meantime) & then rinse off the extra in the bathtub. You could also use something like a q-tip or baby wipe.
