Rainbow vs. Monochrome Matte Circle Glitter Nails!

Awww yiss, check it, two days in a row!  With complicated glitter each time, no less!  I am a blogging master!  Ok so if there's one thing I like almost as much as sparklies, it's matte circle glitter.  No idea why - maybe something about the extremely consistent size and shape.  I heart it and it's surprisingly hard not to use all the time.  I felt like using it yesterday so let's take a look at my rainbow monochrome matte circle glitter chevrons, shall we?

For some reason I felt like this needed a hot pink background so I started off with two coats of Urban Outfitters Hottub.  You want a medium thickness base for round glitter: enough to let it sink in a bit but not enough to squidge up between the circles.  Bet you would never have guessed that I started with a centre column of glitter, right?? Anyway, make it nice and straight and you'll have no problems fitting any of your pieces in.  For some reason I kept losing my end pieces so be careful to trim them so they're a tiny bit away from the edge.  You'll want to do at least two coats of Seche Vite too. 






The Verdict:  Someone "accused" me of having a fetish for rainbows on Instagram the other day and they're totes right.  No idea why.  There's just something very pleasing about having colours be so organised.   I think that's why I like this glitter too.  Very need and looks orderly.  I <3 matte circle glitter!  Even though you don't sparkly!

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????
