Sparkly Lasers! Or Lasers in Sparkly Space! One of them!

It's been a little while since I had my Pam's Girly Bits polishes delivered and yet I still haven't reviewed them!  Into the Night is a particularly sparkly one but I decided (with help from the lovely Tara) to try something different with it.  Thus, I present to you Sparkly Lasers!  Or, Lasers in Sparkly Space! Something! Words!  Toaster chicken shoe!

Anyway, I started with a base of American Apparel Neon Orange, let it dry a bit, added a thin coat of Seche Vite and waited.  I've been burnt over and over again with not waiting for a base colour to dry, I WAS NOT GOING TO BE TRICKED AGAIN DAMMIT.  I couldn't find my striping tape so it was cut up bits of labels a go-go.  They worked surprisingly well, look how clean the lines are on my thumb.  Once the labels were in place I added a thick (super thick) coat of Into the Night.  On closer inspection, this wasn't the greatest choice as it isn't that opaque in one coat but whatever, sparkly!







The Verdict: Going to have to wear Into The Night on its own, this doesn't do it justice.  Yay lasers?

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.
