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?

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!
