Last week, I painted my nails a bright pink and added a black/white matte glitter top coat.
So I just used a 99-cent polish from Sally's Beauty Supply. It's a really bubble-gummy kind of pink.
I added one (sort of thick) coat of Hard Candy "Black Tie Optional."
Crazy upside down picture, anyone? XP
So that's about it. Really simple and easy, but I think the matte, neutral colored glitters give it a little pop and make it interesting.
