Black and White Dotting Experiment

Last night I was looking through my list of followers and their sites and came across a style from GretalRabbit that I just had to try, white dots on black and vice versa.  I'm so happy with how it came out!  I started with two coats of Wet n Wild Black Creme and added different sized dots to the corners.  I thought I'd play with the accent finger too, adding two coats of Love and Beauty silver bar glitter.  The glitter covered really well, by the way.  Finally, bonus matte version!  I think I prefer it in this case as it makes my nails look like pieces of a mug, which I actually like!

  2. Your version is so much better than mine- my dots were nowhere near as even as yours! I love that bar glitter too :)

  3. I realy love this manicure, because black and silver is my favorite combo. I love it matte best. I can't tell from the photo if you mattified the glitter, but I think it would be great without the glitter mattified. Make it more of a "statement" nail, being so far and away different.

    1. Thanks for the kind comments! I did add matte to the glitter but you're right, it would have been better shiny. One day I'll learn to just stop :)

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

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?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
