Glass Flecked Ombre Nails!

I've always liked the look of ombre nails but hadn't gotten around to trying it myself.  Unless the run of colours was perfect, it just didn't look right to me.  On a completely unrelated note, I find I have a lot glass fleck polishes, usually in blues and purples.  I find I have a hard time using them as they don't look good on their own and sometimes I'm just on in the mood for layering.  The other night, however, these seemingly unrelated points came together.  What if I did an ombre with my glass flecks??  YES.

First up, a coat of Rimmel Black Satin for the base colour.  Then, from thumb to pinkie, I added two coats of each of Color Club Ulterior Motive, Claire's Cosmic, American Apparel Violet Panache, Spa Ritual Meditate on This and Claire's Moon Dust.  All application was pretty much the same, being all sparkly and good with two coats.  






The Verdict: I love how this came out as it's just the right amount of colour shift to be noticeable as a whole but not when comparing two adjacent nails.  Hooray for actually using polishes I've had in my drawer for a while!

  2. Wow! Gorgeous! I agree, too drastic of color change is not pretty, and too subtle kind of loses the point. This is perfect! Nicely done.

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????
