Sari Nails!

It's embarrassing to admit, but I have enough nail polish that I should never ever wear the same one twice.  I just couldn't help wearing Ninja Polish Alexandrite again though, it's just too pretty.  I figured that if I slap enough glitter on it, it'll be different enough from this post that I can get away with it.

What I love about Alexandrite the most is the combination of the duochrome shimmer and larger glitter pieces.  They colour shift differently which makes for some serious distraction while typing.  I mean, look at how pink the glitter is at the edges!  While being able to see green in the middle!  Exclamation marks!  I wanted to bring out the purples in this polish so I layered it over American Apparel Imperial Purple instead my usual black.  Works better with the cooler glitters.  Of course though, there can always be more glitter so I added a glitter gradient using my new favourite holo gold glitter.  







The Verdict:  Looks like some kind of fabulous colour-shifting sari to me.  Also, looking at these pictures is making me as my middle finger nail broke so bad.  Will be backlog for a bit, kiddies!

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.
