First Attempt at Freehand Stripes - Need a Better Hand

Urgh, looking at these photos does not make me happy.  I picked up three new Sally Hansen Hard As Nails colours the other day and I've been racking my brain, trying to think of a way to use them together.  I did initially try marbling but it was a messy disaster and I abandoned it.  Next I thought I'd try to free hand stripes.  Not good either.  I still like the combination but the execution is just terrible.  I wanted to post this though, just to show an evolution of an idea, I guess.  One day I'll find a good use for these.

Used below is Sally Hansen Grey Area, The Real Teal, Caribbean Coral and my favourite silver, Celeb City.

  1. I just bought Celeb City and Caribbean Coral(I think, it didn't have a sticker) earlier this week. The current manicure I have right now is Caribbean Coral and gold accents. I really loved the coral in the bottle but when I started using it, it was a thick, gloopy mess and more red-orange than a pretty coral. If you want to see it, my name links to the post I made of it on reddit.

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.
