Rainbow Glitter Herringbone Nails

As some of you might have noticed, I've been on something of a glitter kick lately.  The lovely Jenna from Lacquistry send me the most massive box of glitter the other day and I've been wracking my brains for ways to do it all justice.  A particularly enticing item in said delivery was a large pot of rainbow holographic glitter. I was magnetised to it, it is my crack and I finally decided to use it.  I present to you: RAINBOW GLITTER HERRINGBONE NAILS!

I actually filmed all of this as a time-lapse shot but something happened and it's just not.  This was a particularly tricky one do to as the glitter has to be rotated and flipped, to make sure the pieces lined up properly but it was so worth the effort.  Even my personal trainer was impressed although he is, also, easily swayed by glitter.  Anyway, I started with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin then used my normal technique to add the glitter in, making sure I spread out the colours and lined it all up properly.  







The Verdict: It's a little spikey but I love how sparkly this is.  The best part - which doesn't really show - is that all this glitter is also holographic.  It was a lot of work, but so sparkly.  SPARKLY!

The Polishes:

  • Rimmel Black Satin
  • Rainbow diamond holographic glitter.

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????
