Cherry Nails

I don't know what it is but my safe, comfy place with nail art is always hand-placed glitter.  Always sparkly and easy to get looking neat and orderly, it's always my fall-back.  In an effort to step outside of my comfort zone though, I do sometimes like to try something different.  Thus, cherry nails!

To start, two coats of Sally Hansen Celeb City, the sparkly silver foil.  I find myself using this polish all the time as it covers well in two coats, is super sparkly and compliments a glitter top coat perfectly.  I wanted to use it on its own this time and turns out it's great for my cherries.  Next, using a small paintbrush, I added the red dots using American Apparel Lipstick, brown stems in polish that's completely slipped my mind and then the green leaves using American Apparel Crescent Heights.  I did one colour at a time as cleaning the brush is a bit of a pain.  You know the hardest part about this?  Trying to figure out which way up to do the cherries so they wouldn't be upside down in the pictures.  Silly broken brain :(







The Verdict:  I think these came out super cute, if I do say so myself.  I'd like to try these even smaller and on a different background, could be even cuter.  Thoughts?

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

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!

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?
