Rainbow Lasers!

I don't even think I should bother writing an introductory paragraph at this point - it would just be more about how much I love glitter and rainbows.  Let's cut to the chase, shall we? Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies! Yay! Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies! Yay! Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies! 

You know that I would have covered my whole nails if I had the time last night but alas. Instead, rainbow glitter lasers!  If you don't want to commit to full nails, this is surprisingly eye catching way to go, especially if you add two coats of Seche Vite like I did to get the black super glossy.  To do this mani, I used my usual technique for placing glitter but rotated the glitter slightly so they tile horizontally.  Take a look at the thumbnail, you'll see what I mean.  Yay glitter rainbows, to reiterate.








The Verdict: I like how this turned out, beyond being shiny and sparkly.  I thought about adding another line of glitter to each nail, making french tips but this works too.  Much quicker too.

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.
