Science hasn't proven this theory correct — yet — but it seems that adding glitter to boots makes the average person more likely to develop full-blown shoe lust. Could be why these Miu Miu Chelsea boots ($750) have garnered a cult following over the past year, frequently popping up as a street-style staple. If you've come down with Miu Miu fever, too, let the shoes inspire your next manicure. Paint your nails with a deep blue polish such as Sinful Colors in Hot Spot ($2), then apply two coats of Essie's Stroke of Brilliance effect ($8). It couldn't be easier to create this magpie's dream — and that's a fact.
How much does this sparkly manicure look like one of those scrumptious Funfetti cupcakes? And just as easy as those colorful confections are to eat, this two-step manicure is similarly just as swift.
Just start off with two coats of white opaque polish, like Sinful Colors' Snow Me White ($2). And for the finish, China Glaze's Party Hearty top coat ($2) from its 2010 holiday collection adds just the right amount of sparkle with randomly-placed bits of red, green, and gold glitter.
