Guest Post #4: Stephanie from Sincerely Stephanie!

Time for another guest post everyone!  Take it away Stephanie!

Hey all!
I am so happy to be here while Laura is away on vacation, lucky lady! I hope she is having a super fantastic time and I am thrilled to be here :)
I'm Stephanie and I have a little Canadian blog called Sincerely Stephanie. Woo to Laura also living in Canada ;)
I really love Laura's blog and the number of manicures she manages to get in blows my mind! I don't know how she manages to get it all done! It took me awhile to decide on what to post but I finally took inspiration from a purse that I saw on Pinterest! I unfortunately drew out the design on paper and can't find the bag now, anyway onto the nails. 


I started off with a base of Essence Nude It! Then grabbed a striping brush and started with Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine and zig zagged a pattern across the middle of my nail. Then I used China Glaze Stone Cold and Revlon's Midnight Affair to keep creating lines of zig zags up and down my nail. Then I grabbed a small dotting tool and using NYC French White Tip to dot on two rows of white zig zags. Then added more Wanna Be Your Sunshine and finally added Midnight Affair.

























I really like how this turned out! The zig zags were pretty time consuming, but the overall effect is pretty fun! Here's a close up of my thumb :)


I hope you all like this look! And a great big thank you again to Laura for having me! 
Looks amazing Stephanie, thanks for sending it through!

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????

Pink Fire Mermaid Nails!

MOAR GLITTER YES SPARKLIES GOOD VERY MUCH YES.  I'm such the wordsmith.  What I lack in wordies, I make up for in sparklies!  Cos I have another mermaidy thing to show you!  This one is purple, pink and gold!  I have even made the glitter available if you wanna try.  You know, if you aren't chicken.  Bock.  I HAVE HAD A LOT OF COFFEE THIS MORN, DEAL WITH IT.
