The Culmination of Ten Iterations of Mosaic Nails

Well, I think I've done it everyone.  After a series of iterations on mermaid nails - now rechristened to Mosaic Nails as it fits better - I don't think it's physically possible to fit any more glitter on my nails! 

Starting off, I added two coats of Sephora Drama Velvet Pearl, a vibrant sunset orange with gold shimmer.  This is almost pointless to mention as I then proceeded to cover it entirely in tiny pieces of silver holo glitter.  Let me tell you, this is the most time-consuming mosaic nail set I've ever done.  I don't even know how long this took except that I got a bit cross-eyed on my middle finger and had to go to bed.  If you're interested, instructions on how to do this are here.







The Verdict: SO SPARKLY I NEARLY DIED.  I'm also a little sad as where could I possibly take this?  I can't go any smaller with the glitter although I could start to build in patterns...Anyway, this even held up well, this is over 24 hours after applying as I had to stop after three nails.  I wanted to take these pictures in sunshine but silly Toronto weather.  THIS WILL NOT BE THE END, I WILL FIND SOMETHING ELSE TO DO WITH THIS, DAMMIT.

  1. Interesting! Maybe take the small glitter and do designs like swirls or spirals with it! Less time consuming, still pretty...?

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

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

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!
