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! 

Not that it matters in this case but I started with three coats of Loreal Don't Shy Away, a really pretty dark plurple jelly.  It's really shiny and nice when, you know, you can see more than half a mm of the polish.  I wanted a nice deep base for my studs to stick.  This is a case where I could have used nail glue but then I worry I would never have seen my nails again.  So lots of top coat and patience won.  I did the usual process, starting in the middle and working my way out.  I was lucky the studs mostly fit vertically on my nails.  You can certainly trim them, but it's hard to cut them straight and avoid them bending.  I did trim some for the edges though.  Line it up on your nail then use small, sharp scissors like these to trim them.  Just don't tell my mum I used good scissors to cut nails studs.  Shhhh.  But yeah.  No extra top coat!  Just gingerly touching things for a while.  We aren't going for practicality here :)






The Vedict: I LOVE how these came out.  No base colour bleeding issues, just nice, crisp colours.  And, like, eye-ball-bustingly neon rainbows.  Now I just have to figure out how to stick glitter on these as well.....

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....

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

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!
