Double, double toil and trouble

macbeth and burn, and cauldron bubble - Macbeth Act IV, Scene I

I've been digging Milani's gold lacquer recently; it has large chunks of hexagonal glitters swimming in clear polish. Shakespeare popped into my mind yesterday so I decided to team Butter London's Macbeth with gold french tips. 

This is the first time I've used the glitter as tips and it's really fiddly; I ended up getting too much clear polish on the tips, just to get the amount of glitter that I want. Me likey a lot, but I don't know if I'll be doing this very often :S

I forgot that I had to stock shelves later that day and by the end of it, my nails were a mess. So there I was at 11pm peeling off what's left of the gold bits. 

What does one then do with half-painted nails? One slaps on something dark and mysterious. OPI comes to the rescue with its blue-black shade. 

The nail guide strips go on again...
