Guest Post #2: Missy from Gnarly Gnails!

Heyyoooooo! It's been a couple days again, time for another guest post! These are more fun to write on holiday, after a bottle of wine and a good meal, especially if you didn't have to do your nails yourself.  It's quite the problem when you have a nail polish blog with over 200 posts and your mother is doing her nails before you, albeit in a coral frost, much to my disgust.  Anyway, take it away Miss from Gnarly Gnails!

ey there all you friends of Laura and her great blog. My name is Missy and I do the blog 'Gnarly Gnails'. I like to predominantly do nail art and that is what I'll be showing you today as I hijack Laura's blog.

For this look I started out with a base of China Glaze Recycle.

Then I added J'Adore by Icing and did the Saran Wrap method where I pulled the polish off with a scrunched up plastic baggie to give it a "marble" look.

Coated that with a nice thick coat of Seche Vite and when it was dry I added some large dots with a dotting tool and China Glaze Aquadelic. 

A little green acrylic paint for the leaves and then my Sally Hansen nail art pen in black to draw in the rose designs and outlines.

I finished the look off with some sporadic polka dots using Milani Yellow Whiz and then a final coat of Seche Vite to smooth it all out.

This was actually my first time doing the marbling method described above, as well as drawing freehand roses - hope you enjoyed it!!






The Verdict:  Love it, thanks so much Missy!

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.
