DIY Glitter toes

The littlest princess and I had a little time to kill so we decided to do pedicures. I tell you she is only 19 monthls old and is always running at full speed, but you break out a bottle on nail polish and she will sit still for 20 mintues while they dry. She is a girly girl for sure! Glitter toes are so popular right now and I love how it looks. Now that spring is just around the corner I thought it would be fun to try my own method. Glitter toes are basically like an acrylic nail and can do some major damage to your toe nails. So as much as I like the look I don't want to ruin my nails so this is what I did.

****Warning I am not a toe model these are actual toes, not actors****

All you need is a nail color that corresponds with your glitter, it doesn't have to be perfect. As you can see I used some crazy green I had left over from a witch costume. I had some really pretty glitter that I use when I scrapbook. I went with this pretty green in honor of St. Patricks day.

Paint your toes with the base color. Put your foot on a piece of paper to catch the excess glitter. Then simply pour a generous amount on each toe. Tip your foot to get the rest off. Finish up with a clear protector coat and there you go. No it won't last 3 months like the real glitter toes will, but I am crazy like that, I like to change my color alot!

Wanna feel old? Take a picture of your toes. Eeeeegad when did I get wrinkles on my toes? I did just get out of the shower but I am pretty sure those aren't going away!
