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?

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....


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????
