Cherry Nails! With More Cherries!

Just like there's a whole patch my brain that lights up for sparklies, there's another patch for miniature things. Just anything miniature.  I want it.  Can you imagine what then happens if you combine miniature AND sparkly?? Like, I die.  So even though I can't generally put my hands in my pockets these days it's so very worth it for the nail charms.  And cherries go with cherries, right??


Ok so I knew I wanted a white base here because I had a skirt my mum made me growing up that had basically this pattern.  I see cherries, I want to put them on a white background.  So I applied my three coats of OPI Alpine Snow, whack my cherries on with LOTS of nail glue and then decided it needed more.  Using top coat, I applied red holo circle glitter, painted on stalks with a fine brush and green polish and covered it all in the usual top coat.  BAM SPARKLY TINY CHERRIES.  WITH TINIER CHERRIES.





The Verdict: :D I love over-the-top nails, these are over the top, HAPPY LAURA :D:D:D:D:D:D

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?
