Easter nails!

I know Easter is still far away but it's always nice having an excuse to do a themed manicure!

I have always been so jealous of all the beautiful flake polish i have seen around the blogging community, though i can never find any for myself! A lot of the ones i love are all brands that we don't carry in Canada, which really sucks. I decided since i can't find a nice flake polish, i would have to make my own.
I was wandering around Michaels a couple of months ago and came across a really weird looking glitter. It's made from cellophane and has a really great rainbow effect. Anyone remember that Rainbow Fish childrens book?? It reminds me a lot of the fish scales the main fish had!

All i did was add the glitter flakes to clear polish and apply it to my nails. I think the effect turned out really great, i added a top coat of seche vite hoping it would smooth it out a bit. It's still pretty rough feeling but i don't mind that at all. I used a pale grey polish by Love & Beauty for a base color for the glitter nails. All of the pastel colors are from Joe, which can be found at Superstore. The colors from left to right are Butter, Powder Blue, Kiss and Faded Violet.

What do you think of the cellophane glitter effect?

Hi Kenzie! Wow that is soooo cool that you just found some glitter at Michael's art store and made your own nail polish. It's so pretty!
You know, I bought one Joe Fresh nail polish in this coral colour. The colour is just gorgeous but the formula was awful - goopy and streaky :( I'm not sure if it's just that particular colour or what but hopefully yours turn out better than mine in terms of formulation.

This is too cute!
My only talent when it comes to painting my nails is one color...& I try my hardest not to get it all over the sides.
