Miu Miu Glitter Bootie-Inspired Nails

Miu Miu officially takes the cake as the brand most imitated on my nails. This is my fourth iteration of Miu Miu nails, but take a look at 1, 2 and 3 to see how just far these posts have come. This time around I decided to take on the shoe of the moment, Miu Miu's glitter booties. For the glitter base I used Chanel's "Holographic" which is probably my only nail polish with a story. It was only available for sale in Europe and I bought it with a voucher from a very upsetting canceled flight from Venice to Copenhagen while I was studying abroad. I used a the nail polish brush to paint a pink tip and a fine paint brush to paint a thinner "X" for the ankle strap. After an even finer black outline and a shiny topcoat, I was done.

I can't believe you have Chanel's Holographic!

What lens do you use btw?

The camera is a Canon Mark 2 5D, but I'm not sure which lens exactly.
