Guest Post #7: Raquel from 9ml Universe

Guest post time!  Today we have a lovely sparkly mani from the lovely Raquel from the lovely 9ml Universe!  Take it away, Raquel.
Hi everyone! 
My name is Raquel and today I'll be showing you a brand that I doubt any of you has heard about, it's a spanish brand called Yes Love. I don't own many polishes from this brand, just 2 I think, but the ones I do own are quite awesome! At first, I wasn't really sure if they were any good. Here in Portugal they're only sold in chinese stores and only cost 1€, so that made me think they would be crappy, but everyone on the portuguese Facebook groups I'm in, only had nice things to say about them. I decided to give them a try and found this gorgeous colour one day on my way home. I have a soft spot for purple polishes! 
Ok, moving on to the polish itself. This is Yes Love #N06 and it's purple with some gold micro glitter in it.  It had a really nice formula, not too thick or runny, and 2 coats were enough to get perfect coverage. Can't really talk about drying time though, I always use Seche Vite after doing my nails. 
If anyone here follows my blog, you know that my thing is my accent nail! I always try to do something different on my ring finger. This time wasn't any different, but I wanted it to have a little bit of Laura's thing too, and that left me no other choice than glitter!! xD I always love her glittery manicures and admire her patience do to that on all of her nails.
So here you have it, a purple manicure with handplaced purple (sometimes green-ish or blue-ish) glitter on my accent nail.

I  hope you all liked this manicure, I was a bit lost and didn't know what to do for this post and I'd also like to thank Laura for the possibility to write a guest post for her fantastic blog. 

Thanks so much Raquel, you did amazingly!  I always love what other people do with hand-place glitter :D


  1. It's a very interesting design, love it!

  2. This looks lovely, I would like to think that is what dragon scales would look like :D

  3. Thank you for the opportunity, Laura! ^^

  4. Hi Laura! Amazing guest post with Raquel! I am also a Portuguese girl and I do too own a lot of Yes Love and their price quality relation is great. There are lots of colors, finishes and glitters to chose from! I really loved the one that Raquel chose to show yous! And the accent nail.. well.. perfect!!
    Congrats to you both!

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?


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!
