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?

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????
