Rainbow Mermaid Nails! Not to be Confused with Others I've Done!

It's been a little while since I've done a glitter placement.  Partly because I keep falling asleep on things and partly because of a super secret project I've been working on.  Very super secret.  I've already told you too much.  But when it's ready oooooooo well.... Anyway, I had a little time so of course that means glitter rainbow mermaid nails. 

I keep getting asked over and over about a tutorial for these types of nails but I don't really know what to tell you.  You just stick the glitter on, being careful with the alignment.  For this one I just used any old black base to apply three coats then applied a stripe of Essence Top Coat - because it dries slow - then did a column of glitter down the centre of my nail.  Set the spacing in that column and it's easy to just keep it going for the rest of the nail.  Trim any excess bits with sharp sewing scissors and slather on the Seche Vite and you're done.  Rainbows for everyone!






The Verdict: I love rainbows, so of course I love this.  Look how sparkly it is in that video.  I had some issues with this particular glitter because it was super cheap but overall it's sparkly.  Buy proper glitter kids, and save the hassle! Sparklies!

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

I'm a Proper Mermaid This Time Beeeeaches

Ermerger guys, I don't have any glitter on me!  Well, I do, just on my nails.  I always have glitter on me.  And cat fluff.  It's funny how often my bf comes home with glitter in his beard.  That means it's been there all day... Anyway, new nail vinyls mean something a bit different.  I swear I'm not actually obsessed with mermaids, it just seems like it... Anyway, again, shall we?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
