Why Yes, I Am Going to Have Fun Playing Tonight

Just a quick post to show you what finally arrived in the post today!  After something like a month my American Apparel polishes finally arrived! Same day as the 25 piece stamping kit! And the same day I hit up Shoppers and Winners for sales!  Yay!  </exclamationMarks>

  1. I'll be curious to see how the Bundle Monster plates work. I've been super tempted to buy a set on Amazon, but some of the reviews aren't super great. :( I'm crossing my fingers that they're awesome! Can't wait to see you use them!

    1. I'm actually really happy with how the Bundle Monster plates work, especially given how cheap they are. I think the defining factor in success is how dense the polish you use is and how well you scrape and stamp. I can't imagine that the Konad plates are that much better, tbh.

      As for the plates themselves, I much prefer the patterns on the 25 pc set. They have a bunch of full nail plates and I got so many ideas unpacking them last night. They also seem bigger than the 21pc.

      Either way, it's fun to do, something different, worth trying out if you've got an extra $25 lying around :)

  2. @Tia, I've got the whole set and I've been using it since before Christmas. They're... okay. In italics. I've got some Konad's for comparison and the Konads are definitely deeper and higher quality, but at six dollars a plate versus like 25 for $17, honestly, I'll take the slight downgrade in quality for quantity. They aren't sharp and have never cut me.
    Overall, if you can't afford platinum Konads, these are pretty darn good.

    1. Hmm yeah I totally understand that the BM stuff is cheaper. I've been most interested in a plate that has an entire nail design. I have 3 random Konad plates, but I was never really able to have too much success with them. But they're also from YEARS ago, so maybe the quality has improved.

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....
