Polish-Aholics Anonymous Mondays: Glitterbomb!

Hi everyone!  How was your weekend?  I'm really kind of glad it's over.  I was bored!  Plus, it's hotter than hell's ass crack here.  The sooner the weekend is over, the sooner fall gets here!  I know, a little optimistic, but I have to be.  Heat and I just don't get along! :)  

Today I have my first challenge from the Facebook group Polish-Aholics Anonymous.  This week's theme is glitterbomb.  This was the whole reason I joined the group!  I think it will be fun.  Plus, it will force me to try things I haven't before.  I tend to be safe and only do what I know how.  

For my glitterbomb mani I first used Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in Barracuda, then sponged on Sinful Colors Hottie, China Glaze Dorothy Who?, OPI Absolutely Alice and finally Zoya Charla on the tips.  I like it a lot.  This was the first sponge mani I ever did!  Not bad eh?  I did have a problem with sponge pieces sticking on my nails.  I don't think you can see any in these pictures, but they're there! 

I was hoping that I could get more glitter to show up in the sun.  As is classic with glitter photos, it didn't happen.  These are actually super duper sparkly!  Have any of you done this week's theme?  What do you think?  Have a great week!  Thanks for looking!
