Happy Halloween Monster Nails!

Oh my, so much Halloween, I can't help jump on the bandwagon.  I had a hard time deciding what to do and surprisingly, my male co-workers and friends have been really helpful!  I wasn't about to use makeup to make it look like my nails were torn off like one suggested as I have had actual nightmares about that and I now get really depressed when I break a nail *breath* but I like the idea of monster nails.  As I've been having fun with my nail art polish lately I thought I'd try my hand at happy monster nails.

To start, I painted my thumb, middle and pinkie fingers with Orly Dayglow, my index finger with Sally Hansen Mint Sorbet and my ring finger with Joe Fresh Orange.  Next, using L.A. Colors Art Deco nail art polish in black, I freehanded the monsters.  I used the end of a paint brush to make the eye circles as all my dotting tools seem to have disappeared lately.  Viola!  Happy monster nails!  On a side note, I've actually had a few people think that these are stickers or pre-made nails so yay! 







The Verdict:  I think I'm going to have to do more of these types of nails.  I like having happy nails.  Happy Halloween!

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????
