Glass Slipper Nails

When I first spotted Essie’s new Summer 2012 collection, I immediately gravitated towards the periwinkle blue shade, with subtle fine silver shimmer. It’s a gorgeous polish and I think will look absolutely stunning on the toes or fingers. Plus it has a super cute name…Bikini so Teeny! What a perfect summer name and color!

I decided a fun manicure was needed with my new shade. When I applied it to my nails for some reason I instantly thought of, Cinderella blue. Her blue dress is more aqua and lighter, but I still went with it and added hologram silver nail polish and lots of little rhinestones to my ring finger. I guess I thought it would be sparkly like her glass slipper!

This was super easy to do, just paint your nails the blue, except for your ring finger which you will paint with a sparkly silver glitter polish. Then add a topcoat to your nails, and before it dries use and orange stick and apply rhinestones to your ring finger. It’s so simple and so pretty! I picked up my bottle of Bikini so Teeny, but you can buy your’s online here.
