Rainbow Mermaid Nails! Not to be Confused with Others I've Done!

It's been a little while since I've done a glitter placement.  Partly because I keep falling asleep on things and partly because of a super secret project I've been working on.  Very super secret.  I've already told you too much.  But when it's ready oooooooo well.... Anyway, I had a little time so of course that means glitter rainbow mermaid nails. 

Alien Egg Nails!

I've been on a bit of a buying binge lately, mostly charms and studs from all over the place.  Turns out I love weird rainbow studs so much I bought them in three different sized circles and an oval shape.  I have absolutely no short term memory about what I buy.  If it's in my collection though, I could tell you definitively whether I have it or not.  Anyway, the only solution to having this many rainbow studs is clearly to just use them all at one.  Alien Eggs, BAM.

MWHAHAHAHA STILL NOT CRAY I SWEAR, JUST ENTHUSIASTIC ABOUT CHARMS

It's hardly a secret that I like sparkly things.  Glitter?  Awesome. Sparkly tiny charms? Also awesome.  I've had so many new awesome ones I knew it was time to do Crazy Tacky Nails 2!  I love that it's hard here to tell where my nails stop and the ring begins.  Yay for charms!  Let's take a closer look, shall we?

Cherry Nails! With More Cherries!

Just like there's a whole patch my brain that lights up for sparklies, there's another patch for miniature things. Just anything miniature.  I want it.  Can you imagine what then happens if you combine miniature AND sparkly?? Like, I die.  So even though I can't generally put my hands in my pockets these days it's so very worth it for the nail charms.  And cherries go with cherries, right??

NEON NEON NEON RAINBOW NEON NAILS 2: THE BLACK LIGHTENING!

If you've been here a while, you'll know that if I come across a good thing, I'm going to keep doing that thing til I run it into the ground.  Turns out to be a good thing if you can put a twist on it.  My neon nails from a few days ago were really popular and I was just going to leave it at that until someone on Reddit mused about said nails under blacklight.  I have a black light bulb so it's the perfect excuse to do even more complicated neon nails.  SO.  GLAD.  I. DID.  Cos LOOOK:

NEON NEON NEON NEON Nails from the Planet NEON. COS NEON

Greetings from Planet Neon, where the nails are the neon and the skin colour is weird!  I've been experimenting with some new stuff to stick to myself lately and it's really hard to choose! I asked Instagram to pick something for me from this picture and I'm happy they choose the neon bar studs.  As I'm wont to do, I of course had to cover my nails completely with these things.  Success!  Even if my camera couldn't handle NEON NEON NEON and skin colour.  Onwards! 

Review: All Three Zoya Pixie Dust's, Cosmo, Vega and Lux!

As you can imagine given the size of my polish collection, I'm pretty well known at the beauty supply places around Toronto.  My main source of Zoyas, Trade Secrets in the Eaton Centre, is good but they're slow on getting the new stuff.  It's gotten to the point where I hassle the nice manager man to get more and have raided his stock even before it gets to the shelves.  Anyway, I was super excited about the Zoya Magical Pixie Dusts polishes cos you can't lose with holo + texture.  Turns out you kinda can...

Minnie Mouse Nails with OPI Over and Over A-Gwen (groan)

OMG LOOK GUYS I'M ACTUALLY DOING A BLOG POST AND IT HASN'T BEEN A MILLION years since the last one!  It's almost like I can organise myself to be able to go to work, sleep AND blog!  Yeah so I'm gradually working out a routine with working.  I did make the mistake of talking big about how I never have the same days two days in a row.  When I accidently wear the same nails THREE days in a row because I kept falling asleep on the couch, imagine the ribbing I got from my delightful co-worker Krista.  Thanks Krista.  Really appreciate it.  They're good nails!  I was sleepy!  Whatever.  I made them better yesterday by sticking jingly charms on them.  You're going to want to see the video at the end of this post.  I'm quite proud of how professional my videography is.  Anyway, MINNIE MOUSE NAILS YAYYYY
