Neon, Rainbow Glitter and Matte, Oh My

So apparently I'm a bit broken as no sooner did I finish my nice, staid monochrome dot gradient mani that I took it off and replaced it with a mani so eyeball-punchingly neon and rainbow glittered that my brain still hurts.  Yeah.  Glitter and neon, baby! You didn't need your eyes in solid format, anyway, right?

I started this monstrosity off with three coats of American Apparel Neon Yellow.  I'm quite fond of this polish as not only is it a true highlighter yellow, it covers well without being too streaky.  That's often a problem with the neons but this one was fine, even without underwear.  Then, using my usual technique, I added the rainbow glitter stripes to my thumb and ring fingers.  As that wasn't enough, I mattified the other fingers, cos you know, why not.  Cameras cannot possibly be expected to handle this level of neon but trust me, this is very very bright.  







The Verdict: This may not be my most sophisticated effort but I love the combination of the neon and rainbow glitter, and the matte.  This is so eye-catching that my male Project Manager at work commented on it, it's so in your face.  Hooray!

The Polishes:

  • American Apparel Neon Yellow, American Apparel
  • Joe Fresh Matte, Joe Fresh.

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....
