A Few Manicures I've Done Recently

Over the past few weeks I've been experimenting with some different combination of colours, glitters and patterns.  All these were taken with my iPhone so please excuse the quality!  

Christmas party nails!  I loved how this one turned out, so Christmas-y.  This was using Rimmel "Stiletto Red" with Love & Beauty green glitter.

Found this one in the supermarket, no less.  Really hard to photograph but pretty green flakes.  Joe Fresh "Twilight" .

Loved this one, so sparkly.  This was using Sally Hansen Complete Manicure "Glity Pleasure" and Sephora by OPI "Only Gold for Me". 
Another great sparkly one that had terrible wear.  This was only after a day, you can see how much it was coming off at the tips.  Using Rimmel "615 Night Before" and Wet n Wild "Party of Five Glitters".

I've spent a long time looking at holographic polishes and decided to bite the bullet and try Nfu-Oh 61, a supposedly legendary holo.  I was really disappointed by it though, this was the only time I could see even a bit of a rainbow.  Also my first attempt at stamping.  Bit meh.

This was so sparkly!  As much as I nothing the Kardashians I couldn't help picking up the Nicole by OPI "Follow Me on Glitter".  As that wasn't colourful enough, I added Sephora by OPI "Spark-tacular!".

My first full nail attempt at stamping!  I tired to achieve this look but it didn't quite look as good!

This polish was absolutely amazing.  Easy to apply, opaque and looks like coloured glass in the sun.  Using Zoya "Valerie"


OPI "Rally Pretty Pink" with silver foil strips.  The duochrome in this is amazing, completely gold in some lights, completely pink in others.  
So that's it!  I'll be using better quality photos from now on but had to share some of my beginner attempts.

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????

Pink Fire Mermaid Nails!

MOAR GLITTER YES SPARKLIES GOOD VERY MUCH YES.  I'm such the wordsmith.  What I lack in wordies, I make up for in sparklies!  Cos I have another mermaidy thing to show you!  This one is purple, pink and gold!  I have even made the glitter available if you wanna try.  You know, if you aren't chicken.  Bock.  I HAVE HAD A LOT OF COFFEE THIS MORN, DEAL WITH IT.
