Ozotic Gradient with Hex Nail Jewelry Accents!

Guess what guys?  The ridiculous amount of Hex Nail Charms I ordered a while back arrived!  I've been seeing them all over the internet so of course I need them too.  I probably shouldn't have ordered ~25 of them but whatcha gunna do.  I needed something awesome to pair them with so why not a gradient with Ozotic holo polishes?  Unicorns need rainbows, it's the law. 

To start, I applied the usual two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  Once dry, I painted two thick stripes of Ozotic 531 (orangey) and 534 (purpley) on a makeup sponge and daubed it on my nails.  I only did two coats of the gradient as I really like the scattered rainbow effect you get when you really lightly apply a holo polish.  Once dry, I placed a drop of nail glue on my nail, attempted to stick the charm on, peeled it off my fingers/tweezers and finally got it stuck to my nail.  I've used top coat, cheap nail glue and proper 3 second nail glue and trust me, if you're going to invest a dollar or so for each charm, get the proper nail glue.  Even though my ring finger is a bit too curved for the unicorn and the horn sticks up a little, it still lasted all day.  That's less likely to happen with other methods. 






The Verdict: LOVE the charms, love the Ozotic polishes and my sparkly shoes, of course.  These charms are just such a nice way to accent a nail without having to do anything complicated.  And if you can get some rainbows in there too, of course that's going to make it even awesomer.  Sparklies!

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????
