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.

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.
