Rainbow Holo Mermaid Nails!

Urgh, I hate being busy at work.  And needing to sleep.  Together they don't leave a ton of time to be sparkly.  This took me three nights to do.  Three!  The last day I walked around with just my middle finger not done as I had to sleep.  That doesn't matter now as I have reached maximum sparkliage on my right hand and that's allllll that matters.  Let's take a look, shall we?


I've done a lot of this type of glittering before but never quite this holo and rainbowy.  What you can't see too well in these pictures is that every single piece of glitter on my nails is holo.  This pleases me.  I used my usual technique: after applying three coats of Revlon Espresso polish, I worked in columns from the middle of my nail outwards, using my glitter, my slow drying top coat and my orange stick, all topped off with a liberal dousing of Seche Vite.  No more words, picture time!

The Verdict:  Of course I love this.  It has everything I could ever want: sparkly, sparklies, rainbows and glitter.  Works for me.  And the time is always worth it!

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?
