Triange Glitter Taping

So this is post 180 or so.  I'm finding it harder and harder to come up with different ideas.  Must read more of the tubes!  Anyway, a while back on Reddit I saw an amazing taped mani with a sparkly glitter triangle.  If you know the one I'm talking about, please let me know and I'll add a credit in.  I've been looking for an excuse to use Nicole by OPI Rainbow in the S'Kylie so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.

First up, two coats of Gosh Black Passion, a dark charcoal grey with a little shimmer in there.  I have a bunch of Gosh polishes as they keep being on sale but haven't gotten around to using them.  I was pleasantly surprised.  They applied well - two coats - and were fast drying.  Before adding the tape, added a quick coat of Seche Vite to really get it to dry.  Once completely dry (seriously, just wait five more minutes) I cut out tape triangles and added a coat of the glitter.  What you see here is actually just one thick coat of glitter, the coverage is amazing.  If you have sticky tape, just press it to your hand first and it should help stop it pulling up the base colour. Top coat and you're done. 






The Verdict: I love how this came out.  The coverage on Rainbow in the S'Kylie is so good, it's the perfect choice for the accent.  Yay glittarrrrr!

  2. I almost bought this yesterday but I wasn't sure how the glitter coverage would be. I will definitely have to go back and get it!

  3. Really loving this look.

    I have always failed horribly with tape manis but it probably isn't as bad with glitter polish. I'll have to try it out. :)

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!
