Thirty Different Shades and Finishes in This Mani. So Sparkly!

So I have the plastic tray, right.  All the times I do glitter and I have bits left over but mixed together a bit, it goes in the tray.  I like to look at this tray cos it's sparkly and I like that.  I want to apply said mix to my nails but choosing is hard because there's so many different shapes and sizes.  The little hexes have the largest variety of colours and finishes, so why not that.  So I did that.  On all fives nails.  Over two days.  Cos this takes ages.  But sparkly!

I started with my usual base of black, going with two coats this time.  With your smaller glitters, you want a thinner base because otherwise your glitter surface can get a bit uneven and it'll show on your photos.  So after I applied my thin strip of top coat (this time Essence Absolute Pure) I laid down my centre column of glitter and built out each side.  All I did was try to not put any piece next to a piece of the same colour and finish.  Together the neon, pastel and regular colours in metallic, matte and holo glitter look totally awesome.  There are over thirty different glitters in here, people.  I'm proud of myself :D







The Verdict:  Of course I love this.  There is no way I'd spent the amount of time I did doing it if I didn't.  I know a lot of you won't understand why I'd spend such a long time sticking glitter to myself but that's ok.  It's my hobby.  And I really like sparklies.  Yay 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?

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....
