Candied Orange Peel Nail Art

This candied orange peel nail art came out of a bit of freestyling. I was watching United States of Tara on Netflix and started painting orange swirls over an orange base. Since I found success putting glitter over nail art in my pastel stripe manicure, I decided to try it again. This time, I reached for a sugary iridescent glitter that gave the manicure a sweet finish.

This nail art uses:
Floss Gloss - Pony (base)
Floss Gloss - Bikini Coral
Floss Gloss - Fastlane
Floss Gloss - Selena Corpus Crystalina (glitter)

I don't often do orange nail art -- the 31 Day Challenge might be one of the few times during the year that I actually do. I think the tone on tone swirls are nice, but the glitter is what really sells this nail art, to me.

Here's what the manicure looked like before I added the glitter.

Which way do you prefer?
