Review: Revlon Silver Coin with Fimo Flowers

In an effort to keep showing you new and different manis (I'd totes do a glitter mosaic every day (and totes is ok to use, I checked :) )) I've been trolling through ebay and ordering things to stick on my nails.  It's surprising the amount of stuff you can get sent to you for maybe $2, including shipping.  I ordered striping tape, fimo sticks, fimo pre-sliced pieces, stickers, you name it. I've had these pretty fimo flowers sitting on my desk for a while now so I though I'd give them a try.

First up, two coats of Revlon Silver Coin.  I couldn't find my Sally Hansen Celeb City but Silver Coin does well for a silver.  It's not as sparkly as Celeb City but application was decent at two coats so..there you go.  One thing I learnt with these is that you have to really let the base colour dry before you start on the fimo.  Once it was dry, and using nail glue, I stuck each piece on to my nail.  They actually held on quite well.  I was able to do laundry without any falling off.  They're a high maintenance look, that's for sure, but if you have a fancy occasion they'd be a nice accent.  Also, I toootttally didn't stick anything together with the nail glue, that's just silly :D






The Verdict: There's something about fimo I love, so naturally I like this look.  With a strong nail glue it's quite durable too.  Yay flowers!

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????
