Mirror-ball Nails!

Lately I've been trying to get a bit more creative with my nails.  I've visited arts and crafts stores and dollar stores, hoping to find something I could stick on my nails.  I was in luck at a very shady dollar store yesterday and found a "Nail and Sparkly Art Decoration Kit" for the bank-busting price of $1.99.  Sold!  Inside was this tiny bottle of rhombus-shaped silver glitter and I just HAD to try them out.

Before we talk about the glitter in detail, let's look this lovely kelly green, Revlon Posh.  A new colour from Revlon, it's a really pretty and applies really well.  What you see in the pictures below is two coats.  

Once Posh was applied but still tacky, I took an orange stick, spread the glitter out on on piece of card and set to work.  As the polish was still a little wet, it was easy to stick them down.  Working left to right, I lined up the glitter so it would create a checker-board pattern.  Time consuming, but worth it!

Now, here's where I made a mistake.  I've had a bottle of a top coat other than Seche Vite sitting on my desk for a while now and I figured, why not give it a shot!  LOOK AT ALL THE STUPID BUBBLES IT LEFT ON MY MIRROR-BALLS! Never using that one again. 






I want to punch those bubbles so hard.



The Verdict:  Love Revlon Posh, it's a perfect shade of sophisticated green.  Also love differently-shaped glitter, who doesn't like mirror balls?

  5. Seche Vite is meant to be used on tacky polish, if the polish is too dry it can cause bubbles. Give it another chance :)

    1. It was the new top coat that caused the bubbles, not the Seche Vite

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....


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????
