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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

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....
