I'LL FIGHT YOU WITH MY NAIL ARMOR PUNCHY SMASH SHINY

I always have high hopes for my nails but sometimes, things just come out more awesome that I expected.  I've had these hex studs for a while - it was quite the revelation when I found out they existed by the way - and the obvious thing to do is do a full coverage mani with them.  Especially given they're surprisingly easy to cut which makes my life a lot easier.  Shall we?


I wasn't sure just how well these would tessalate so I started with two coats of OPI My Signature is DC, a nice sparkly silver from the Coke Collection.  Cos you know, after the MLB Collection Coke is the next logical step for a polish brand.  Once done I applied liberal amounts of Essence Top Coat - any will do, as long as it doesn't dry fast - and applied the studs.  I made sure to press each one down into the polish and they seemed to stay on ok.  This isn't the most practical of looks, after all.  WORTH IT FOR THE SHINIES.  I EVEN HAVE A VIDEO.  THAT IS COMING.  Because despite my computer science degree making a fucking YouTube video of my nails is DIFFICULT.







The Verdict:  I love these, they're so shiny and awesome and makes me feel powerful and shield-y when I had them on.  Also sorry for swearing.

If you're interested in these studs, they'll be up on The Sparkly Shop shortly.

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?

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....


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????
