Cherry Nails

I don't know what it is but my safe, comfy place with nail art is always hand-placed glitter.  Always sparkly and easy to get looking neat and orderly, it's always my fall-back.  In an effort to step outside of my comfort zone though, I do sometimes like to try something different.  Thus, cherry nails!

To start, two coats of Sally Hansen Celeb City, the sparkly silver foil.  I find myself using this polish all the time as it covers well in two coats, is super sparkly and compliments a glitter top coat perfectly.  I wanted to use it on its own this time and turns out it's great for my cherries.  Next, using a small paintbrush, I added the red dots using American Apparel Lipstick, brown stems in polish that's completely slipped my mind and then the green leaves using American Apparel Crescent Heights.  I did one colour at a time as cleaning the brush is a bit of a pain.  You know the hardest part about this?  Trying to figure out which way up to do the cherries so they wouldn't be upside down in the pictures.  Silly broken brain :(







The Verdict:  I think these came out super cute, if I do say so myself.  I'd like to try these even smaller and on a different background, could be even cuter.  Thoughts?

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....
