Guest Post #3: Julie from Bright Little Buttons!


Why hello! You might remember me, I used to write posts for a blog!  Anyway, I'm back to a country with marginally more available internet so time to get back to it!  As promised, I'll be keeping the guest posts coming so here's a lovely mani from the lovely Julie from Bright Little Buttons!

I’m not very creative when it comes to nail polish designs, so I like designs that are easy to do and don’t require a lot of special tools!

This is one of those designs.  Both polishes I used were NYC In a New York Minute Quick Dry polish -- Water Street Blue and MoMa.  They were each $1.72 at Wal-Mart.  I made homemade dotting tools with two different types of straight pins with different sized ends stuck into pencil erasers!

I started with two coats of Water Street Blue.  Then, I dotted several dots of MoMa on each nail with the larger dotter.  When I was done with that, I put a dot of Water Street Blue inside each of these dots with the smaller tool.

This design is so easy to do, and this polish goes on really smoothly.  And it’s cheap (I rarely buy polish over $2)!






The Verdict:  Love it Julie, thanks!

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????
