CIRCULAR GLITTER EVERYBODY LOOK

Ahhhhhhhh I'm a bit excited because I just got a dozen sampler bags of glitter mixes in the mail and it's so sparkly and so many options I can't even words.  I had success ordering glitter off Etsy before so I thought I'd step it up, get more, because sparkly.  I ordered a ton of stuff from Borough Babe Supply mostly because I've been literally dying to play with circular glitter for a while now. Let's take a look, shall we?

It's surprisingly hard to find a strong colour complement to silver.  With gold it looks dynamite with pinks and purples.  There's just not the same pop with silver.  So I went with black for the base because it's the safe choice.  Ignore my thumb here, it was an experiment that didn't really work.  Look at how sparkly the circles are instead!  I used my usual technique here, stripe of top coat, line down the middle placed with a toothpick/orange stick, build out the sides then seal with Seche Vite.  The result was almost blindingly sparkly.  My favourite thing to do with this was to hold it really close to one eye and just stared at the bokeh rainbows.  Mmm sparklies.

The Verdict:  WHAT DID I TELL YOU, SPARKLLLLYYY YESSS SO GOOD.  And it's nice to have not hexes on my nails.  Or super tiny and annoying squares.  As you can see, the glitter itself is pretty good, nice and even pieces.  Which is all I ever want, really.

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....


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????
