REPORTING FROM PLANET NEON PART 3

Hot damn do I love neon studs.  I mean, look at how awesome they are and are.  And saying hot damn.  But mostly neon studs.  They have this awesome smooth texture and THEY FRICKING GLOW UNDER BLACKLIGHT.  The only way these could be more awesome is if they were somehow holo too but I think I can survive.  I really should come up with a new pattern....eh.  I have soooo many too, if you're interested..... NEONNNNNNNNN.


I've tried a few different ways to stick these on and the best I've found so far is it slather on the top coat and just make sure each stud is pressed down firmly, without having the base polish overflow.  I like black for the contrast to the studs, so I started this off with two coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather.  Then, using Essence Top Coat - anything that isn't fast drying will do - I worked my studs.  Usual deal: start in the middle and do a column of studs, then work out each side.  I left the end pieces overhanging til I was done, then trimmed them off.  Same with the cuticle pieces.  Just use a small pair of scissors and you'll be right.  Oh, and HOLY BALLS, BLACKLIGHT.





















The Verdict:  I think I like these 1.5mm x 5mm studs the most. Being so narrow they aren't affected by the curve of my nail and aren't so long that there isn't enough room for patterns.  WIN.

These particular size will be available on The Sparkly Shop on Friday!

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 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!

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....
