Practicing My Bling Skills

The last few weeks, I’ve been blinging a lot of non- nail items in preparation for a certain event…

A vintage inspired cuff bracelet I made from an old slap bracelet. Ah…the 90s!

I’ve been adding rhinestones to almost everything!

I tried my hand at making some blingy barefoot sandals too.

So far the shoes have been the biggest hit:

Even after a day of walking on sand, lava rocks and through Waikiki, I lost only 4 rhinestones on the very bottom of the toe area. Not bad, I’d say! I might find myself branching into  shoe-bling services!

A fellow Etsy seller, Noaki, custom made this blingy bouquet:

Givin’ the Mr. a smooch now that we have the same name!

It was a beautiful day and it’s lovely to be 100% official with Mr. NTMG. I never met anyone else like him and I’m glad I snagged him! (How many other guys don’t mind finding rhinestones in their pasta on a regular basis?)

Nail artist. Wanderer. I'm a color-holic, in fact, it was my love of color that brought me to the nail art world. Well, that, and the fact I was too cheap to pay crazy Japanese prices for nail polish while living in Tokyo, so I had to start mixing my own. That's how NTMG began.

      Thanks so much Marina! I’m so glad you liked the bracelet. I did wear it most of the day but took it off later because it kept getting snagged on the veil in the crazy wind.

    Where can I buy the barefoot sandals?

    • nevertoomuchglitter says:

      Thanks for your comment- I made these myself, but you should be able to buy something similar on Etsy. If you don’t find any you like, I could try making a pair for you. But so far I’ve only done one set for myself. 😉
