Tried to Make Daisies in the Grass - Good Idea, Meh Execution

As posted earlier this evening, I got another exciting parcel in the mail tonight!  The 25pc stamp set from Bundle Monster and the 5 American Apparel polishes I ordered before xmas.  Given that I picked up a nice neon green tonight as well, I thought I'd give a Daisies-in-the-Grass stamped mani.  I'm reasonably happy with the result,  I just struggled with the application.  The tiny bottle of white polish that came with my stamper has gone all gluggy and none of my other whites seemed to be thick enough to pull off a strong stamp.  My little finger was the best but the others were meh.  I tried to fix it with a dotting tool but again, not the best.  The green Cosmetic Arts polish I picked up a Winners today was also not the greatest.  Three coats and still a bit spotty in places.  

Oh well, will just have to keep trying!  Check back soon, I did an AMAZING mani after this one :D

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?

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!  

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....
