Black with Tiny Red Glitter Accents

When I get stuck for inspiration, I always just glitter as a fall back.  Not really sure why, it's just always easy to do and sparkly so that works for me.  Also, with the Reddit Toronto monthly meetup being Saturday, I had to have sparkly nails to show the surprising number of RL people that read this blog.  It's interesting about the post I just did showing my full collection: if anyone reads this blog, I'll know as they don't seem to be able to not comment on how many polishes I have....

Anyway, on to the nails.  Following my usual steps, I started with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  Then, one finger at a time, I added a third coat and used a toothpick to apply the tiny red glitter pieces.  I really like using the smaller glitter like this as from a distance you can't even see it, just the red flashes it makes in the light.  As it's all lined up flat, you get a very sparkly, uniform finish.  As it isn't full coverage, it only takes about 10-15 minutes to do, too.  







The Verdict: I've done this enough, you know how much I love glitter :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?

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????
