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?

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!
