For our trip to Costa Rica, I wanted fun nails that had an almost tropical vibe. I went back to Marie Nails (where I got

this glittery combination

) and got a bright tangerine color with graduated gold sparkles on just my ring fingers (which you can see

here

). It felt just festive enough and I couldn't wait to try out different combinations. Luckily my friend Marta was up for the challenge and let me paint her nails a pale greenish blue with aquamarine-colored glitter. It's quickly become my new favorite way to add a bit of sparkle to plain polish.
