My. Entire. Updated. Collection.

You know, I think my new declaration should be that I shouldn't make declarations cos it lasted, what, all of a couple days?  I get way too much enjoyment out of blowing things off so committing to a schedule is never a good idea.  So!  Let's go with "more" posts.  Since my last two manis weren't quite right, I thought I might as well show you my polish collection.  Conditional upon me showing you this, you must promise not to count them then work out the approximate cost.  I have low expenses and nail polish is my favourite thing to buy so...yeah.  The worst part is is that I have probably bought about 200 more polishes since I took these pictures.  And this is what my collection looked like in April 2012...

To give you an idea of how much of a problem I have, keep in mind that this table is the Ikea Norden table, extended, making it close to 7 feet long. Yeah.  It's that bad.  I even had to crack out a fish-eye lens because I couldn't fit everything in frame otherwise.  The bonus of the fish-eye is that it makes the table look like a tiny planet populated exclusively by nail polish...mmmmm.   I organised everything by brand but I really want to put them all in a rainbow now.  Can you imagine, a seven foot wide sparkly polish rainbow??  Took ages to this so it's unlikely to happen, but nice to think about.





And this is my baby collection, from April 2012.

The Verdict:  Of course I love this.  I'd be even crazier to spend all this time and money, if I didn't like looking at them all.  If there's something you want to see close up, just leave it in the comments and I'll do a macro version!

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.
