Mirror-ball Nails!

Lately I've been trying to get a bit more creative with my nails.  I've visited arts and crafts stores and dollar stores, hoping to find something I could stick on my nails.  I was in luck at a very shady dollar store yesterday and found a "Nail and Sparkly Art Decoration Kit" for the bank-busting price of $1.99.  Sold!  Inside was this tiny bottle of rhombus-shaped silver glitter and I just HAD to try them out.

Before we talk about the glitter in detail, let's look this lovely kelly green, Revlon Posh.  A new colour from Revlon, it's a really pretty and applies really well.  What you see in the pictures below is two coats.  

Once Posh was applied but still tacky, I took an orange stick, spread the glitter out on on piece of card and set to work.  As the polish was still a little wet, it was easy to stick them down.  Working left to right, I lined up the glitter so it would create a checker-board pattern.  Time consuming, but worth it!

Now, here's where I made a mistake.  I've had a bottle of a top coat other than Seche Vite sitting on my desk for a while now and I figured, why not give it a shot!  LOOK AT ALL THE STUPID BUBBLES IT LEFT ON MY MIRROR-BALLS! Never using that one again. 






I want to punch those bubbles so hard.



The Verdict:  Love Revlon Posh, it's a perfect shade of sophisticated green.  Also love differently-shaped glitter, who doesn't like mirror balls?

  5. Seche Vite is meant to be used on tacky polish, if the polish is too dry it can cause bubbles. Give it another chance :)

    1. It was the new top coat that caused the bubbles, not the Seche Vite

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. 

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....

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
