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.

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????
