The Most Complicated, Colourful, Ombre, Stripy Mani I've Ever Done!

After the relatively lesser success of my first mani of the evening (here) I decided to test out the neon mini pack I found earlier in the night.  What to do with it, I thought.  Oh! They'd make a nice Ombre, I haven't tried one of those yet.  Ooo, they'd look good over black, came my next thought.  Oh look, I have striping tape, I wonder how that would work! And tape too!  What if.....ALL THESE THINGS TOGETHER IN THE ONE RAINBOW, OMBRE, STRIPED, BLACK, FRENCH MANI. YES TO ALL THESE THINGS.

Without further ado, here it is!!

P.S. I used a bunch of polishes here, let me know if one jumps out at you and you want to know what it is :)

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.
