Wacky Space Rocks

Essence Jacob's Protection, OPI Pink Shatter, OPI Pirouette My Whistle

Hello all! Some of you may have noticed that I've added a new little thing just to the right of this post called Today's Nails. Call it an unofficial New Year's resolution, but I kind of want to intensely document what goes on my nails on a day to day basis. 

I like facts and spreadsheets and statistics, and I'm actually quite curious as to how often I really paint my nails, as well as what my most used brands, colours etc are. This led to me deciding to do a 365 of sorts on my nails this year. Every day I will take a photo on my phone (so no excuse not to do it!) of what's on my nails and it'll pop up in that little thing on the blog. 

I'm hoping it will also make me be less of a lazy bones and post my blog worthy manis more quickly, since you'll all be able to stalk Little Nails flickr and yell "Rosie, we know you did this mani two weeks ago! Stop being such a lazy bones!" at me when I'm slacking! 

So, onto today's mani, and yes, this is what's on my nails this very second

I'll be honest with you, this is perhaps one of the weirdest combinations of polish I've had on my nails in a long time. Yesterday I wore Essence's Jacob's Protection*. Then, after work I decided to add to it for today. On went a coat of Pink Shatter. Next I added a coat of Pirouette My Whistle because I couldn't be bothered to add a top coat. I was actually very surprised by the end result. They look kind of spacey and kind of rocky. Like fancy moon rocks!

*Ugh, it kind of annoys me that this is a Twilight themed polish. It was purchased on its own glittery merit, not because I'm "Team Jacob" or anything like that! 


  1. It might be a weird combo but it really does work together :)

  2. Shatter has never really been my thing but I really LOVE the way you used it in this mani! I also super love the daily nail photo that pops up on your sidebar... I wish I had thought of that too so I could have started Jan 1 :)

  3. Love! I actually prefer Jacob;)

  4. I love this mani! I never would've thought of layering anything but a basic top coat over shatter, and I love the dimension that's been added with the glitter!
