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?

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????
