Beetlejuice Nails!

As you may have noticed, I have a hard time going more than a day or so without having to hit the glitter.  It's my favourite and while time-consuming, I find it really relaxing to do something so methodical.  I've already used this particular glitter before but I wasn't entirely happy with it last time so I thought I'd try to mix it up a bit.  Let's take at my Beetlejuice nails!

First up, a new white polish I picked up the other day.  Turns out LA Girl has a "salon" line that is pretty decent.  Delicate is a shimmery white polish that applies well for a white, only needing two coats.  Next, using my usual glitter technique, I added vertical stripes in my charocal grey square holo glitter.  Quite the mouthful really.  I was trying to decide between vertical and horizontal stripes and after seeing it on, I proooobably should have gone with horizontal but whatcha gunna do.  Beetlejuice! 







The Verdict: I like the Beetlejuice look but I didn't apply it that well and that always bugs me.  I do like my new white too.

The Polishes:

  • L.A Girl Professional Salon Lacquer in Delicate, L.A. Girl
  • Charcoal holo square glitter, ebay

  1. Love the manicure. It must have taken ages to place those glitters, but looks stunning.

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.
