Guest Post: Lit From Within

Today I have for you a guest post that the lovely Nidia of Lit From Within has written for me!  It was meant to be posted while I was away, but due to my computer issues I haven't been able to post it until now.  Take it away, Nidia! :)


Hi Globe and Nail readers!

I want to thank Emma for opening up her blog for guest posts, and wish her success at ballet school.  Maybe someday I’ll see her on my fave TV show – So You Think You Can Dance! J
My name is Nidia, and I run a little blog called Lit From Within.  I focus mostly on nails and nail art, with the occasional beauty product review.  I believe that all women should feel beautiful – whether they wear makeup or not.  Our beauty is Lit From Within.

I’m excited, and a little nervous, to show you the mani I wore yesterday.  You see, it started with Sinful Colors Zeus.  I hope that by the time this is posted, SC will own up to their mistake of taking bloggers’ photos as their own, and make things right.  In my happy world of blissful ignorance, we can just admire the polish for being a beautiful dusty purple with a nice pink shimmer.

When I saw this color, I knew I wanted to try it with one of my new indie glitters from Black Cat Lacquer,  Let Them Eat Cake.  I’d never seen a glitter so full of pastel colors before!  I love it.  It applied very nicely with the normal initial sweep of glitter and then some dabbing to fill in.

I really like the pastel glitter on the purple base, and I hope you do, too.  I think this glitter is wonderfully made, with the right balance of glitter to base, and with a mix of colors that does make me think of cupcake frosting.

I know to wish an actor luck you tell them to ‘break a leg’, but that doesn’t seem appropriate for a dancer… so, Emma, have fun, be safe, enjoy school!  Have a great day, everyone!


I love this layering combination!  I don't own any Black Cat Lacquer, but I'm definitely eyeing Let Them Eat Cake; the pastel glitter is so pretty!  Be sure to check out Nidia's blog, Lit From Within.  This (finally) concludes my series of guest posts over the past month, so starting now you'll be stuck with little old me again for a while. ;) 

 I got a lot of polishes in the mail while I was away including an order from Llarowe, a giveaway prize, and my first Butter London polishes, so I've got lots of great new toys to play around with over the next little while.  Look forward to some beautiful polishes and some nail art over the next little while! :)


  1. Thanks, Emma - am looking forward to hearing about school and new toys. Best, Nidia
