Fuchsia Electric Mermaid Nails

As I loudly explained yesterday, my new favourite person is Jenna from Lacquistry for her incredible generosity in sending me the mother of all glittery packages.  The hardest part though, was choosing.  Herein lies where I got myself into trouble.  I chose what turned out to be a very very small hex glitter because I was intoxicated by the sparkly.  I was planning to do all five nails on my right hand but it was all of a sudden 1.15am and I'd done my thumb and ring finger so there's that.  The result, though, is so sparkly it has to be my second favourite mani I've ever done.  

First up, I started with two coats of my favourite neon pink, Urban Outfitters Hottub.  Starting with my thumb, I picked up each and every piece of fuchsia glitter and covered my nail, using my usual technique.  I'm not going to lie, this took a long time.  Like, a long time.  BUT LOOK AT THE RESULT.  I'm going to use the same simile as my last full, holo, glitter mani: it's like pressing your face into a sparkly mermaid's tail, but this time a girl mermaid!  Cos you know, pink for girls, blue for boys.  No idea how I'm going to handle taking this off, emotionally. 








The Verdict:  I wish I could have finished this, do it full coverage.  If it doesn't die by the time I get home tonight, I may well do it.  It's so sparkly, so alive, It's amazing.  

The Polishes:
  • Urban Outfitters Hottub, $6, Urban Outfitters
  • Fuchsia holo small hex glitter
The Bonus: In action!

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????
