Last Week Wasn't Sparkly Enough So MORE HOLO!

Ok so I did this mani last weekend.  It was good, but it could be sparklier.  I know that was a lot of glitter last time but JUST NOT SPARKLY ENOUGH.  So realising I now have the full rainbow of holo colours in my small hexes, of course I'm going to do proper.  Sparkly.  

I tried to do this at a reasonable time last night but that meant applying glitter while watching the last episode of Breaking Bad and that clearly wasn't a good idea.  So late night glitter it is!  I think you know how to do this by now (see here if you want a tutorial) so let's assess composition and placement.  What bugs me, looking at this closely, is that the spacing isn't consistent between my fingers.  My thumb and ring finger - being done first - are loosely spaced but the other three fingers are closer together.  I don't like the difference.  This is what you get from doing glitter while tired and not taking out a colour or two for shorter nails.  I also which I hadn't added the silver.  Cover it up, and the rainbow is much smoother.  I know you'll think I'm nitpicking but I've done so many of these by this stage there isn't any harm in critically evaluating my work.  Fortunately, it is rainbowy and sparkly, so there's that.





The Verdict:  I like this, save for the reasons outlined above.  It's sparkly!  No macro photo today because apparently that's too hard for me to do, four times.  Sparkly!  Rainbows!

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 Color Club Watermarbling with Gold Unicorns!

Oh hi!  Did you have a good holiday/break time thing?  I did.  I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing.  So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too.  I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them.  My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term.  Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling!  With gold unicorns!  Cos they go with everything!  Woo!

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....
