Reddit Nails!

For those that don't know, I'm pretty big into a site called Reddit.  It's just a site to aggregate links and content but on top of that it has the most amazing community.  I've met all my friends here in Toronto from all the meetups we have and there's an amazingly supportive nail art community in Reddit Lacqueristas.  Without the support from everyone there, I wouldn't still be doing this.  So, as a very small token of appreciation to everyone, redditor or not, I present to you Reddit Nails!

To start with, I used my favourite nude, Orly Pure Porcelain.  Then, using a small brush and the acrylic paints I got at the art store for $6, I freehanded the following design. 





The Verdict:  I'm happy with how these came out, mostly because they're so cute.  Gotta keep practising with the paints though :)

Side note:  The Reddit Monthly Meetup is on this weekend at the Artful Dodger in Toronto.  I'd love to meet some of you!  And don't worry, every single person there, of the 100 of us, would have had to come alone for the first time, and we don't bite :)

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!
