Dinosaur Nails over Ninja Polish 100% Colombian!

Laura is a happy Laura cos Laura has shiny dinosaur nails!  Woo!  I have fought long and hard with these metal whatevers and I finally defeated them.  Which means I get dinosaur nails!  They're even better when they're paired with a sparkly multichrome polish, even if it is brown.  Rawr, I'm a Laurasaurus :D 

There's quite a process to get these nails because these metal decals are thin and surprisingly sharp.  I will warn you now that unless they are fully covered in at least two coats of top coat, you are at risk of scratching yourself.  So, I wanted quite a thick base for these dinos so I could press them down as I applied them.  I started with one coat of OPI Here Today, Aragon Tomorrow and then applied two coats of the stunning Ninja Polish 100% Colombian.  I have no idea if this polish is still available but if you can get a hold of it somehow, damn, the red-orange-green shift in the brown base is amazing.  So shiny.  I then went with the usual top coat application but I took the step of curving each of the decals before applying them.  I found the best way was to lay it face down on my finger then roll and orange stick over it until the curve matched my nail.  I placed my columns and finished off with two thick coats of Seche Vite.  More is better here, trust me.




The Verdict:  I LOVE how these came out.  I have quite a few different styles of these metal decals and haven't been able to get them to sit flat enough until now.  Curving them made such a difference.  I maaaay be officially obsessed with these now :D

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?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

Neon Color Club Watermarbling with Gold Unicorns!

Oh hi!  Did you have a good holiday/break time thing?  I did.  I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing.  So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too.  I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them.  My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term.  Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling!  With gold unicorns!  Cos they go with everything!  Woo!
