Experiments with Orly Royal Velvet and Stamping

Keeping with the theme of actually using polish I buy in massive hauls, I spent some time tonight playing with with one of my favourites, Orly Velvet Rope.  I've been particularly keen on trying this one as the shift in colours from blue to purple is really strong, depending on the light.  Of course, that doesn't show that strong in the photos but trust me, it's good.  A little on the application before I move on to the stamping; it's not bad.  It really needs three coats to make sure there's no bald spots.  Reasonably shiny, nothing mind blowing.

As it's been a little while since I played with my stamps, I went a little crazy.  All these stamps came from the 21pc Bundle Monster sets and I'm pretty happy with the results.  I like the mixture with the different pattern weights, makes it almost a mixed-up ombre.  Yay stamping!

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????
