Our girl Gelcream returns to holding things on ITG! (Remember this?) This time, it's with glitter nails for the winter season, which she's expertly—and photogenically—paired with sugary sweets. Well-suited to outlast the holidays. You're gonna like these.
Two things that I hate and love at the same time: Sugar and glitter. Both need to be used with care and modesty.
There is nothing more classy that a simple glazed donut and a cup of coffee. When I was growing up I saw this combo in American movies—glad I can experience it firsthand now. I am wearing Sparkle Like A Unicorn by Nails Inc. with a white T-shirt and blue jeans.
Caramel sounds like Autumn, so I'm matching it with Green On The Runway by O.P.I., which is a metallic green/copper duo tone. I am wearing brown leather pants with this combo and a matching oversized blazer.
I like anything that has a cocktail cherry on it. I am wearing a catwalk-classic red with some glitter by China Glaze in Sparkle On and must confess that I dipped my finger in this cake after I got the shot.
This is my worst sugar enemy—truffle chocolate with a whole hazelnut inside. I am wearing layers too: Burberry in Antique Gold on the bottom and Essie Summit of Style on top. Very rich and eye-catching. I am wearing it with all black.
We all have those days. I bought this nail polish at H&M the same time that I got pink pajamas and a bunch of sheet masks. I don’t regret it; I think the chunky glitter is cool.
Wearing the gorgeous satin-finish Take The "A” Train by Deborah Lippmann and eating very-very dark chocolate. I love this nail polish for its almost matte metallic finish. Looks like minx nails; no extra shine. I would pair it with a long, classy, black dress.
Another option for when I need more fun in my life. Easy to make at home: Take any pearly white or pink color and sprinkle some glitter on top. I am wearing Smith & Cult in Sugarette with NYX Face & Body Glitter in Rose.
Yellow is a tricky color, but this shade is very subtle with just enough shine—Brooklyn by Zoya. I added just a little more shine with a top coat in Gold Glaze by Revlon. Wearing it with my favorite golden rings and linen shirt.
