Blue Textured Patchwork Nails

There comes a point where stamping is too hard and the prospect of doing another striped, dotted or average taped mani just isn't interesting.  I literally (literally!) have an entire reusable shopping full of polish and yet deciding what to do can be extremely tough.  The solution? Browse all the blogs! I really should use that more, it is the meme after which my blog is named.... Anyway, I found myself on Chloe's Nails and just had to try one of her "Patchwork" manis.  I wanted a twist though: have each be a different texture, rather than colour!

To start off, I added two coats of Rimmel Black Satin - my go-to black - and added a thin coat of Seche Vite on the top to help it dry.  Once it looked dry, I WAITED FIVE MORE MINUTES.  I have ruined way too many manis not waiting an extra five minutes.  Then, I cut two squares of tape to create my first two squares.  I added the polish, added Seche Vite and WAITED FIVE MORE MINUTES.  Repeat for the second two squares, this time making sure to cover the previous two exactly for a neat finish.  

My polishes, clockwise, from top left: Lacquistry Winter No. 1, LA Colours Unique, Orly Sweet Peacock and Maybelline Demin Dash.  







The Verdict: OMG I love how this turned out.  I'm very proud of myself for adding the texture in there, I'm totes awesome! :D:D:D

  1. Glitterazzi's Glitter tattoos are water resistant and 100% safe for the skin and toxic free.
    We use only cosmetic grade glitter and FDA approved body glue to paint on dazzling images.
    Remember the glue softens when wet so pat dry gently after a shower or the pool.
    Avoid putting oil or lotion on the area of your tattoo and do not scrub soap,
    lotion or oil on it as that will remove it.Relevant Backlink

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!
