NYFW: Rodarte Glitter Cuticles Trend

Yes, there is glitter all over my cuticles. And yes, my eyes have recovered from yesterday, thanks. Since September is all about the fashion week, I thought it would be a good idea to try a few nail trends I spotted on the catwalk. This particular design was seen at New York Fashion Week. It was created by Tracylee for Rodarte and it seemed like the perfect choice for today's 31 Day Challenge glitter prompt.

I started with 3 layers of Mavala Mava White Optical Nail Whitener because I love how fresh this shade is. I then used a striping brush dipped in A England 'And the Moonbeams' and outlined my entire nail a few times. I didn't apply top coat because I like the soft finish of the polish and I don't think that would help with the glitter removal. I have to say I was worried it would take forever to get it off but surprisingly it wasn't really an issue.

I would have never thought of painting my cuticles before because I feel like the nail art community is so obsessed with a perfect cuticle clean up. That's probably what drew me to this design in the first place, it's so unusual. Although I probably wouldn't wear this manicure on a daily basis for practical reasons, it was a really fun experiment. And let's face it, everything to do with the nail industry interests me so if there's a new trend on the horizon, you bet I'm going to try it! 

What do you think about it? Yay or nay? Xx
