My. Entire. Updated. Collection.

You know, I think my new declaration should be that I shouldn't make declarations cos it lasted, what, all of a couple days?  I get way too much enjoyment out of blowing things off so committing to a schedule is never a good idea.  So!  Let's go with "more" posts.  Since my last two manis weren't quite right, I thought I might as well show you my polish collection.  Conditional upon me showing you this, you must promise not to count them then work out the approximate cost.  I have low expenses and nail polish is my favourite thing to buy so...yeah.  The worst part is is that I have probably bought about 200 more polishes since I took these pictures.  And this is what my collection looked like in April 2012...

To give you an idea of how much of a problem I have, keep in mind that this table is the Ikea Norden table, extended, making it close to 7 feet long. Yeah.  It's that bad.  I even had to crack out a fish-eye lens because I couldn't fit everything in frame otherwise.  The bonus of the fish-eye is that it makes the table look like a tiny planet populated exclusively by nail polish...mmmmm.   I organised everything by brand but I really want to put them all in a rainbow now.  Can you imagine, a seven foot wide sparkly polish rainbow??  Took ages to this so it's unlikely to happen, but nice to think about.





And this is my baby collection, from April 2012.

The Verdict:  Of course I love this.  I'd be even crazier to spend all this time and money, if I didn't like looking at them all.  If there's something you want to see close up, just leave it in the comments and I'll do a macro version!

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?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

Neon Color Club Watermarbling with Gold Unicorns!

Oh hi!  Did you have a good holiday/break time thing?  I did.  I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing.  So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too.  I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them.  My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term.  Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling!  With gold unicorns!  Cos they go with everything!  Woo!
