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.

It's pretty clear I had no plan here.  I started with two coats of the Quo version of Orly Saturated and then went to town with my nail glue.  Any glue will do, just make sure it's of the higher end.  You want it to dry fast.  Once I unstuck my fingers from each other I started at the base of my nail with the big oval studs and just whacked on the rest.  There was no plan here.  The glue left the surface a little uneven so, using a small brush, I worked top coat on in the gaps.  BAM crazy nails. 






The Verdict:  This is definitely better than my first try at these.  You perhaps don't need to use this many studs but I can so there.  Love the purple, even if I have the alternate realty Orly version.  These just look so weird I'm into it.

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????
