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?

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????
