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:

I didn't say a lot about how I did the last nails because I didn't have the adhesion technique quite down pat.  Turns out, if you do three coats of a black polish - in this case China Glaze Liquid Leather - a bung a lot of top coat on it, studs pressed into it will stay.  I mean, you will lose a bunch off the ends but it's worth it.  Most will stay.  Oh, but do make sure you do whole nails at once, don't stop and start like I did.  That's how you get inconsistent spacing.  If you're not into that.  










The Verdict: I nearly died when I first shined the blacklight on these nails.  I mean, LOOK AT THEM.  Even the colours that aren't that bright just ignite.  I wish some of them were a little straighter but I think it turned out ok.  Dammit, now I have to think of something else to do....

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????
