Reciprocal Black and White Gradient with Fancy Nail Vinyls from The Sparkly Shop

Imma pretend I haven't been a bad blogger who doesn't post much and instead focus on showing you something I'm proud of.  Many of you know I started a shop with a friend of mine a while ago, selling all the glitter and charms that magically accumulated at my home.  The Sparkly Shop is doing super awesome, especially with our monthly subscription boxes.   I want to keep everyone stocked in new and exciting things so I'm now making Fancy Nail Vinyls!  These Art Deco Wifi Symbols work really well in a reciprocal gradient.  Let's take a look, shall we?

So I started off with a gradient of cream to black, over the top of my point acrylics.  Once the gradient was done and the coat of Seche Vite was dry, I lay my stencil over my nail and applied the same gradient in reverse.  This is hardly a groundbreaking technique but I did make these vinyls myself so I think that's an achievement. 






The Verdict:  I love how these came out.  It's something completely different for me and getting out of my comfort zone is good for me.  Hooray for Fancy Vinyls!

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y

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?

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!
