Pretty Purple Glitter Gradient!

First up let me say how much I love Essie Sexy Divide!  The colour is absolutely amazing and the application is practically a one-coater.  Despite looking really pink in the photos it changes to a purple in other lights as well, it's one of my new favourites.  Of course though, I couldn't leave it alone so decided to test out Sugar Plum Fairy Gone Wild from Sephora by OPI.  Man this is a sparkly glitter.  Large and small lilac glitter with big holo pieces mixed in, it's so glittery and awesome.  

This is my third attempt at a gradient and I'm reasonably happy with the results.  I finally picked up some makeup sponges today and they really did make a different to the application.  Nothing worse than getting cotton fibres stuck in there.

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....


31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
