A Different Take on Glitter Polka Dots

So some of you may have noticed that I'm somewhat partial to glitter, especially VERY ORDERLY GLITTER.  The challenge, once I've gone through all the colours, is to find something different to do with it. I tried something different last night - a twist on the polka dots I've done in the past.  I accidently bands of glitter - not covering the whole nail - and it came out well.

First up, I started with two coats of Nicole by OPI The Right Thing, a reddish coral colour.  I had my blue and gold glitter out and it really took a while to decide which base colour to use.  Using my normal glitter-placing technique, I first placed the grid of blue glitter and filled in the spaces with the gold.  The result is very sparkly and almost looks like gingham, for some odd reason.   







The Verdict: GLITTERRRRR <3<3 Yep, that's it.

.....giveaway still going too :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????
