Three Nerd Lacquer Swatches!

So as I mentioned yesterday, I got a wonderful parcel in the mail. Three Nerd Lacquers, as well as Glitter Gal and Model's Own!  As I haven't seen much about then on the weber-tubes thus far, I thought I'd swatch out all the Nerd Lacquers and man are they purdy.  Let's walk through the pictures, shall we?

First up we have a lovely silver polish with both small and huge pieces of hex glitter.  This was so sparkly to put on, opaque by itself in two-ish coats and absolutely gorgeous.  The pictures don't do this justice, this is so sparkly and pretty. 







Next up we have It's Just a Flesh Wound.  I don't think I've ever seen anything like this one before.  It's a black base with red small glitter pieces and large silver hexes.  It looks like some kind of alien battle armour on and I think it's my favourite.




Last but not least we have Cold & Calculating.  A lilac base with, funnily enough, silver glitter pieces both large and small.  Again, sparkly, pretty and I love a huge piece of glitter.



I'm just about to try out Pinky Brown from Model's Own, check back soon as I feel some stamping coming on.....

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 …
