Fire Glitter Nails with Sally Hansen Play Koi!

Fire nails! I felt like doing 'em, so here we are!  I did at least try something different with the base - this is Play Koi, one of the new Triple Shine polishes.  I mean, we all need another shaped Sally Hansen polish bottle like we need holes in the head but eh, it's an excuse to buy polish.  Cos, you know, I don't have any other them!  Let's take a look, shall we?

To start these nails, I applied three coats of Play Koi.  I have to say, it is as advertised and is pretty shiny.  Nice, strong orange-red.  Works for me!  Once done, I painted on my stripe of clear top coat and laid down my first column of glitter.  When you're working with a range of colours, you can only really just eye-ball how to space them and how many to do of each colour.  This is why we use the cheap top coats - if you don't space right, you can nudge them around until they're in the right spots.  It's worth spending the time up front because this spacing will set the rest of your nail for you.  One of these days I'll figure out how to physically set up my camera so my nails are lit, in focus and I can see what I'm doing.  Harder than you'd think!  Sparklies!






The Verdict: There's something a tiny bit off here but it's sparkly so that's ok.  Play Koi is a decent base colour.  I'm now wondering what it would look like if I just did red glitter over this polish - I love matching polish and glitter so that it comes to life in the light.  Hmmmmmmm might be my job for tonight though I am already wearing red glitter placement....sleepy, come on brain, just keep typing a few more words then the tags and we can post this yessssss.

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????
