Dandelion Nails with China Glaze Electric Beat and Others

A little while ago I found someone doing an amazing dandelion mani, complete with seeds blowing across all the nails.  I just had to give it a try!  To create this look I first added two coats of China Glaze Electric Beat, a good match for a sky blue.  I then used a nail art brush to draw in the stems on my middle finger and thumb using Sally Hansen Gunmetal.  Then, using a stiff straight brush, I dipped the ends in Sally Hansen Whirlwind White and drew on the lines blowing out from my middle finger.  I added a few on my other hand too as I liked the idea of having them spread out.  Finally, I added a coat of Joe Fresh Matte Top Coat.  







I love how this came out.  What do you think of the seeds coming around on my left hand too?




The verdict:  this mani was surprisingly easy to do.  A straight brush meant it was easy to create the shapes.  If you're interested, the brushes I used came from this kit. Electric Beat is a nice colour on its own, by the way.  This was two coats and the colour is nice and soft.  The whole techno range from China Glaze is a winner in my books.

  1. I just started reading your blog and I love it! You've inspired me to do nail art; I think I'll have to buy some brushes and tools.

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?

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop.  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....


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????
