Urban Outfitter Cherry Tomato with Gold and Silver Diamond Holo Glitter

That's it, I think I've run out of fancy names for my nails, after being actually creative with the title yesterday with my computer nails.  Basically, I have this gold and silver diamond holo glitter and I wanted to use it and red was the colour I felt like using at the time so here we are.  Sparkly!


To start, I applied three coats of Urban Outfitters Cherry Tomato, a polish that I think is going to take the top spot for my new favourite red creme polish.  It's such an amazing red and applies so evenly and smoothly, I can't believe I just let it sit in the drawer for ages.  When it was dry, I did the usual thing to apply my glitter, starting in the middle and building out.  And yeah, I might have trimmed some pieces to fit around my cuticle and that might seem excessive but shhh look, sparkly.  The result reminds me of some kind of lacquered inlay box but I can't seem to turn that into a snappy title.  Sparkly!




The Verdict:  After all that, while it's sparkly I'm now not sure if I'm 100% down with the colour.  Oh well, sparkly!  So sparkly.

The Other Hand: Same base colour, dunked my thumb and ring finger in the same glitter and brushed off all the sticky-uppy bits.  SPAAARRRKKKKLLLYYYYYY

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....

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
