Experimenting with Tribal Art and all Different Nails

Oh yes ladies, it's experiment time! I've been toying with different techniques with tiny brushes lately but am usually hesitant to show you as I'm still working on my skills.  Not levelled up yet, so to speak.  However, I decided to give the whole tribal look a go this weekend and accidentally made quite the interesting look.

First up, I added two coats of Joe Fresh White to all my nails.  Then, with a striping brush and starting with my thumb, I painted in stripes and filled in the stripes with different patterns.  Not bad, but I got bored after two fingers so I tried out another of my new Sally Hansen Diamond Strength glitters, this time Multi-Faceted.  Not bad, especially over white.  It comes out a little sparse but dries quickly so it's not an issue to do two coats.  Then, to tie in my ring finger, I added a glitter gradient in Lacquistry Dirty Rich.  All together, quite the eclectic look but sooo many compliments so win!







The Verdict: Totes painting all my nails different now :)

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????
