Taping Experiments with OPI My Private Jet and Ozotic 534

For most of today I've had a wonderfully sparkly blue mani using Lacquistry Winter No.1.  As I applied it far too thick I couldn't help picking it off this afternoon >.<.  Given that it's movie night tonight, I had to throw something on quickly so why not OPI My Private Jet?  I've had this one in my drawer for a while as I was mad at it for not being the crazy holo version.  I consider it forgiven as on it's own it is actually the most interesting colour.  Not really brown, not really olive, so very nearly a holo, it's just interesting! 

As I wasn't sleepy yet when I got home, I though I'd add the holo this polish so deserves with one of my favourites Ozotic 534.  You can see a full review of this beauty here, if you're interested. Anyway, I thought I'd experiment with a new taping technique.  Check the pictures first, see if you can tell what I did:






I love the effect this creates although now its on I'm 100% on the colour combo.  It's pretty rainbowy though so I'll let it off.  Anyway, I created this effect by cutting little triangles of tape and sticking on three per finger.  Paint over the top, peel off carefully and voilà!




The Verdict: Despite getting the non-holo version of My Private Jet, I'm still really happy with the colour, just because it's different! As you would expect from OPI, application was a breeze, this barely needed two coats.  I also love the tape effect although I think next time I'll choose a nice bright contrasting colour pair.

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....


My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images!
To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle of …
