Hot Fuschia Glitter Mosaic!

Ok so I've managed to restrain myself from doing a glitter mosaic for a little while now so brace yourselves, here comes another one!  I was looking at the pots of glitter I knocked off my desk last night and noticed I hadn't done the fuchsia so why not?  I even had the perfect base color, a misc Color Club I picked up from Winners a while back.

I tried two things different with this mani: first, I applied the normal two coats and then used a third coat, one third of my nail at a time, to stick on the glitter.  I did this as I couldn't find my normal "sticky" top coat.  DO NOT USE SECHE VITE TO STICK THE GLITTER ON.  It dries too fast, wrinkles and will make you sad.  See my tutorial here on how to apply this in full. 






The Verdict: These nails look like they belong to my Jem doll from the late 80's.  Foil-like, hot fuschia, awesome.  This is what I mean.

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????
