Balls-out Nuts 2: The Hex Nail Charms!

Ok so I loved those nails I did last weekend.  Balls-out crazy pants, rendered me unable to get my shoes and actually woke me up because they got tangled together, and 100% amazing.  These are it.  I'm basically jelly that I can't do them again this week so I'm improvising and applied all my Hex Nail Charms.  So much classier than last weekends' and coincidently the most expensive nails I've ever done.  So yay for sticking all the charms!

Yeah it was really hard to get excited about just about anything after last weekend.  I was looking longingly at my charms case and noticed I hadn't used my Hex Nail Charms in a while.  After applying three coats of Demolition Polish Dead Man's Touch which is a nice black holo polish I just went nuts with my nail glue.  Just like, pool it on your nail, try and fail not to stick your fingers together or get it in your cuticles then bung the charms on.  Tweezers are ok but if you have sharp sewing scissors, they're really good for picking up and placing the charms.  If you use your finger, you'll get it stuck to it and get fingerprints on the charm.  But yeah, bam I'm a fancy ladyyyyyyyyyy.





The Verdict: I'm happy with this on two fronts: it actually stands up as being interesting and cray after last week and I have close to $50 worth of charms just on my right hand.  Yiissssssssss.

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?

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
