I wanted to get a little more in the Halloween spirit, so I decided to wear Michael Marcus Daisy Dukes with the orange loose glitter I received in my Julep Maven box this month. This was my first time working with loose glitter in a manicure. I can say that between sewing fairy wings for my daughter's costume and this manicure, my family room is sparkling. I've tried cleaning it, but there's no getting rid of all that glitter.
Anyways . . . Daisy Dukes looks almost duochrome in the bottle with an undertone of purple grey and flashes of blue in the light. On the nail, however, this is a dark denim blue with a lighter blue shimmer (very appropriate with a name like Daisy Dukes). The orange glitter made the blue a little more bold.
I don't have a post-mangling picture of this manicure, but it held up my usual amount. I had some early chipping, but I think that was related to the glitter. The chipping wasn't significant until four days in and during those four days, I made donuts, so lots of poking at dough with my fingers (I didn't discover any nail polish chips in my donuts though).
Anyways, that is all . . . oh, you want to hear about the donuts? Well, I converted this Baked Apple Doughnuts to pumpkin pie donuts.
