Guest Post #4: Stephanie from Sincerely Stephanie!

Time for another guest post everyone!  Take it away Stephanie!

Hey all!
I am so happy to be here while Laura is away on vacation, lucky lady! I hope she is having a super fantastic time and I am thrilled to be here :)
I'm Stephanie and I have a little Canadian blog called Sincerely Stephanie. Woo to Laura also living in Canada ;)
I really love Laura's blog and the number of manicures she manages to get in blows my mind! I don't know how she manages to get it all done! It took me awhile to decide on what to post but I finally took inspiration from a purse that I saw on Pinterest! I unfortunately drew out the design on paper and can't find the bag now, anyway onto the nails. 


I started off with a base of Essence Nude It! Then grabbed a striping brush and started with Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine and zig zagged a pattern across the middle of my nail. Then I used China Glaze Stone Cold and Revlon's Midnight Affair to keep creating lines of zig zags up and down my nail. Then I grabbed a small dotting tool and using NYC French White Tip to dot on two rows of white zig zags. Then added more Wanna Be Your Sunshine and finally added Midnight Affair.

























I really like how this turned out! The zig zags were pretty time consuming, but the overall effect is pretty fun! Here's a close up of my thumb :)


I hope you all like this look! And a great big thank you again to Laura for having me! 
Looks amazing Stephanie, thanks for sending it through!

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....

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle
