You Know What This Glitter Polish Needs? MOAR GLITTER

Since I've been busy doing my nails for Revlon (I love saying that, even if it is just for their Tumblr), I haven't been able to do as much glitter stuff as I'd have liked as they didn't send me any!  I'm just going to have to make up for it now by taking an already very sparkly polish, Floss Gloss Stun, and add mega sparkly glitter allllllll over it.  IT'S SERIOUSLY SO SPARKLY.  LoveNailz does the best glitter.  


I had a little trouble finding the right base for Stun as I didn't want to have to do too many coats to get it opaque.  I tried a few polishes but Revlon Gold Coin ended up being the best.  When working with a glitter polish, sparkly foil polishes make good underwear as they're opaque but still sparkly.  Once done with two coats of Gold Coin, it was on to two coats of Stun then glitter on the top using my usual technique.  As usual, I laid a column down the middle of my nail then built out each side.  This is pretty quick - under an hour - if you concentrate!  SO SPARKLY.







The Verdict:  I just....love glitter so very very much.  So much I'm posting both videos I took today because just SO SPARKLY ow my brain :( :DDD :(

Yeah, I caved and now do Instagram too.

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????
