Christmas Glitter Nails!

Alrighty!  It's December 20th and it's probably about time I did Christmas nails properly.  It wouldn't be me without the sparklies so of course it's going to be all done in glitter. At least I used five different types of glitter!  And pretty base colours!  Let's take a look, shall we?

I wanted to use red and green glitter here and wanted a contrasting base of each of the glitters so to start, I applied three coats of Glitter Gal Red Sparkle and A-England St George, both absolutely gorgeous holo polishes.  I then did my usual trick with the top coat, applying a stripe down the middle of my nail, placing my first column of glitter using an orange stick, then filling out either side.  When you're using bigger glitter like I am here, make sure you press each piece down into the polish and top coat - will help stop it lifting up.  Top with two coats of Seche Vite and you're done. 






The Verdict:  I'm not totally sure of the colours but look, it's sparkly!  Love both of the polishes too, they're always reliable and awesome.  And there's variety in glitter!  Sparkly!  And Christmassy!

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????
