Dammit Water Marbling, Why You Hate Me

So after the excitement of the China Glaze Prismatics, I had a little time to myself.  Continually taunted with one successful water marbling under my belt but several failures, I wanted to try out a rainbow marble again.  I gathered ten different colours from red to pink, fetched my room-temp water and got to work.

This is what I ended up with, after 45 minutes:






It's just OK.  I can see so many things wrong with it:
  - My cuticles wouldn't clean up
  - My tape was wrong and let polish in
  - Couldn't get the polish to spread so the reds (first) dried out and wouldn't play with the pink and purple in   the middle
  - Gap on my little finger
  - Same colours used on my index finger but doesn't match the others.

Siiiiiigh.  Just not my night for water marbling.  There are couple of cool combos in here though and I firmly believe in sharing all my polish experiences, good or bad.  I do like how blaringly neon this is, I WILL GET THIS TO WORK PROPERLY, MARK MY WORDS.

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?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
