I'm a Proper Mermaid This Time Beeeeaches

Ermerger guys, I don't have any glitter on me!  Well, I do, just on my nails.  I always have glitter on me.  And cat fluff.  It's funny how often my bf comes home with glitter in his beard.  That means it's been there all day... Anyway, new nail vinyls mean something a bit different.  I swear I'm not actually obsessed with mermaids, it just seems like it... Anyway, again, shall we?

I got a bunch of really awesome nail vinyls from Lou It Yourself the other day and of course the mermaid stencil jumped out at me.  For the sake of transparency, I should tell you that I'm using acrylic tips here.  My real nails have taken a bit of a beating due to how much I like picking off polish so these are a good alternative.  There's a Nailene kit I found that actually works really well.  The top coat is what I've been using lately instead of Seche Vite and it's just so shiny I can't even a bit.  Anyway, once my nails were prepped, I applied two coats of a navy Quo polish then applied a coat of Seche Vite to help with the drying process.  Once dry, I applied my stencil and sponged on a gradient of Color Club Blue Heaven, ILNP Star Gazing and Glitter Gal Dark Purple.  I did two quick coats then peeled the stencil off.  BAM I'm a mermaid bitchessss.
 





The Verdict:  Really like the polishes and extra like the stencil.  I was able to do five nails with two stickers which is awesome.  Hooray for holo mermaidnesssss yisss

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????
