Pink Fire Mermaid Nails!

MOAR GLITTER YES SPARKLIES GOOD VERY MUCH YES.  I'm such the wordsmith.  What I lack in wordies, I make up for in sparklies!  Cos I have another mermaidy thing to show you!  This one is purple, pink and gold!  I have even made the glitter available if you wanna try.  You know, if you aren't chicken.  Bock.  I HAVE HAD A LOT OF COFFEE THIS MORN, DEAL WITH IT.
Usual deal in how these are actually done.  I went for a co-ordinating base, this time Glitter Gal Crushed Ego cos it's holo and it was the first one I came across.  Anyone want to help me organise a lot of polish?  I can't find anything.  Anyway, after two coats of that it was on to the glitter application.  Usual process: a stripe of top coat down the middle of my nail, then a center column of glitter and then building out both sides.  If you pay attention to the spacing from the get-go, it's easy to maintain it across the whole nail.  My nails have been a bit breaky lately and I've taken to doing my own acrylics.  The Nailene Brush-on Gel set not only is good for tips, it makes for an excellent glitter top coat.  Nice and shiny and doesn't go all weird after a day or two like Seche Vite.






The Verdict:  I CAN'T DECIDE IF I LIKE THIS ONE OR MY OCEAN MERMAID MANI BETTER OH NO WHAT A SHAME GLITTER OVERLOAD.

If you're interested, this exact glitter is available on The Sparkly Shop.  Cos sparklies are surprisingly hard to pin down.  And there's a full rainbow too... and ocean colours.... :D:D:D:D: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!
