Deep Purple Glass with Flower Accent Nail

Wandering around the mall today I found this delightful shade from Nicole by OPI called I'm a Pool for Love.  Deep purple, loads of glass flecks, it looks like glass and I love it.  Opaque in two coats as well which is nice.  And since I can't leave anything alone, I added an accent nail with Bundle Monster plate 16.  Check it:

  1. Ok, being a fellow polish addict but also a knitter/ crocheter, I have to take a stab at the yarn you're holding: the rainbow on, is it LB amazing? (looks too even to be Noro). & the gray... Paton's Classic Wool? I've been scrolling through your whole blog over the last few days, hahaha... your glitter manis are incredible! I'm planning on trying it out in the future, though something tells me I'd only get through an accent nail or two...

    1. P.s... I have a nail blog too, but it's not under this account... not to link spam, but it's rocksaltynails.blogspot.com. I just started it a few weeks ago. Woot!

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....

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!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
