Guest Post #1: Athena from I Lacq It A Lot!

Alrighty everyone, time for a bit of a change of pace.  I'm currently relaxing at my parents place in Australia (I normally live in Toronto) and they keep dragging me up mountains instead of letting me blog! So, let me introduce my first guest blogger (I have quite a few to come), the lovely Athena from ilacqitalot.  LOVE that name, by the way!

Hello lovely ladies!  My name is Athena & I am THRILLED to come to you as a guest blogger on Polish All the Nails!!!  I am obsessed with nail polish/nail art & am just getting started LITERALLY on my own nail blog.  I'm so happy she's given me a shot at this.
 
Let's take a refreshing dip into a lovely China Glaze shade shall we?  Flying Dragon (Neon) caught my attention as soon as I laid my eyes on it... Love & Lust at first sight :)  Flying Dragon (Neon) looks Fuschia in the bottle but is more of a berry purple on the nail.  At first glance you can see very fine pink speckles in it - look harder & you see blue speckles as well!  I mean it is just gorgeous in the bottle!  Just gorgeous & as you can see in the pics, nail & bottle are identical.  But on the nail it's not as obvious unless you're under bright light.  Regardless, it's beautiful.  Truly. 
 
Flying Dragon (Neon) dries matte, I used Seche Vite Base Coat, 3 coats of Flying Dragon (Neon), followed by a nice coat of Seche Vite Top Coat.  It was a nice thin formula, but it dries extremely quick, which may cause some balding if you're not quick enough.  I was lucky enough to scoop this one up as well as 2 other colors at Sally's Beauty Supply during their BUY 2 GET 1 FREE Sale.  Don't you just love FREE nail polish!  It retails for $5.99 ($4.99 with membership card) I highly suggest signing up for the Sally membership card - literally pays for itself during your first visit :) Thanks for reading!!!!






 Thanks again Athena!

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????

Pink Fire Mermaid Nails!

MOAR GLITTER YES SPARKLIES GOOD VERY MUCH YES.  I'm such the wordsmith.  What I lack in wordies, I make up for in sparklies!  Cos I have another mermaidy thing to show you!  This one is purple, pink and gold!  I have even made the glitter available if you wanna try.  You know, if you aren't chicken.  Bock.  I HAVE HAD A LOT OF COFFEE THIS MORN, DEAL WITH IT.
