Experimenting with Orly Pure Porcelain and Silver Foil

Two experiments with things I don't normally use today: nude colours and silver foil!  I recently received Orly Pure Porcelain in the mail from the lovely Kitty at kittypolishnbags mostly because it was there.  I never get super excited about nude colours but this was cheap so I threw it in.  I've also had a little pot of silver foil sitting on my desk for a while now, the complement to the gold foil I tried out a few weeks ago.  Why not try both? 

First up, omg  Pure Porcelain is the most amazing nude colour.  The lighest beige with a hint of pink, it seems to work perfectly with my skin tone and cover nicely in only two coats.  It's going to be my polish underpants from now on, it's so good.  Once I'd added the two coats, I carefully smoothed and cut out the silver foil, added the tiniest amount of top coat to the corner I wanted to add the foil to and stuck it on.  Even using a cotton pad, I just couldn't get this to be as smooth as I wanted it to be.  I've seen a tutorial somewhere where it's perfect but couldn't find it.  As I couldn't get it perfect I just added random shapes and called it a day. 






The Verdict:  I love Orly Pure Porcelain and it looks great with a silver accent.  I think the issue might be with the foil itself.  The one I got is wadded up in a pot which puts me at a disadvantage before I even start.  Might have to find some more as I like how this looks with a nude colour.

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?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

Neon Color Club Watermarbling with Gold Unicorns!

Oh hi!  Did you have a good holiday/break time thing?  I did.  I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing.  So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too.  I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them.  My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term.  Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling!  With gold unicorns!  Cos they go with everything!  Woo!
