31DC2014 Day X: Flowers! Lots of them!

Less complaining, more nails is now my motto and dammit that's a thing I'mma do.  Let's call these my nails for the Flowers prompt of the 31DC2014.  I rarely have a concrete idea in mind when I do my nails and this a good idea of how an idea evolves into pretty decent nails, if I do say so myself.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Rather than go through the same old steps of how I did this - you can look at any other post for that - let's go through how this came about, shall we, stream of consciousness style!  "Ok flowers.  Flowers.  Hmm.  Well, I could make flowers out of circle glitter. Ooh those white dots would work well.  Ok, so what do they go with?  I have those white daisy charms that I keep having to order in for the shop.  I'm sensing a theme here!  Ok, so I have two different kinds of daisies.  IN THE GRASS.  No, not that green, not that one or that or that or ohhh sparkly let's go with Formula X Lightning, any excuse to use those polishes.  It needs a base though... not that green not that not that yess Revlon Posh is perfect.  Two coast of that, two coats of Lightning, glue the charms on dammit get off my finger charm stupid glue ok yes it definitely needs more glitter daisies oh yes slather on that too thick top coat gotta buy more ok top coat aaarouuund the charms and done."  






The Verdict:  I'm actually really happy with how this turned out, even though it's green and I'm not super into that.  The flowers were all nice and flowery too.  Woo!

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!
