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!
It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter. I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts. I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped. Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done. They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this. Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin. It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base. Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter. I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle
