A Tale of Two Lauras. No, Whore Island Can't be a Title, Laura

Hi.
This isn't Laura. This is another friend named Laura. Confusing? Maybe it's because you're dumb.

Point is, we did our nails this Saturday instead of going outside and rejoicing in nature's bounty. We stayed in and watched youtube of Ukraine's Got Talent. Clearly, we are two tragic individuals.


Anyway, we did each other's nails. I like greens, so I did Laura's in a light/dark green (American Apparel's 'Crescent Heights'/WarPaint Beauty's 'Slime) chevron. For me, Laura's famous sequins had to make an appearance.

To achieve the green chevron, we taped the shapes we liked (simple triangles) over top of a dried base coat of the alternate color. Once applied, a swift, thick coat of the top color was applied, the tape removed, and the shape cleaned up or reapplied as necessary.








For me, a simple taupe (Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in 'Steel Grey') was necessary; my nails are currently shorter than I like them, so I wanted a simple single colour to offset their lack of length. Laura applied the brown sequins individually, something I would never attempt for myself due to a complete lack of coordination.





Actual, real, proper Laura's Verdict, and Interjection: Yay nails.  That's all I got.  I can also say what I want and otherfver1BGVF G H H s sSTOP MESSING WITH MY KEYBOARD DOUCHEBAG

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?

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop.  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....


My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images!
To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle of …
