GUYS GUYS GUYS I OPENED A SHOP!!

GUYS GUYS GUYS LOOK I DID A THING!  I've been light on the blogging lately because I've been working really hard on a totally new thing: THE SPARKLY SHOP!! I've been incredibly obsessed with nail charms lately and kinda got carried away buying them to the point where I realised I could totally sell them.  I wanted to show you some of my favourites here, and to let you know you can get 15% of any charms if you use the discount code BLOGGYPANTS.  OMG SO EXCITING YOU GUYS.


 First up, we have the magnificent bicycle charms!  Enamel, rhinestones and gold for bike complete with a basket and pedals.  I nearly died.

 Next, Zebras!  The teeniest little guys, all stripy and whatnot. You know you want a safari on your nails.

 These are not holographic as I'm sure they've been described as before, but in fact multichrome rainbow cubes!  Yeah.  And pearls.  And sparklies.

It's ok if you aren't into safaris, what about the magical ocean?  Yeah, you want whales with bows on. 

These daisy charms are awesome for when you can't be bothered doing fancy nails, but you want fancy nails.  Stick one of these on and instant fancy. 

 These bear absolutely no reference to a coffee shop chain and any resemblance is just a coincidence.  Yay for Coffee Shop Mermaids!

I don't think there's ever been a time in my life where I've said, no, I don't think having unicorns on my nails would make my day better.  Shinnnnnyyyy unicorns!

 Do you know how cute it is to have teeny lizards on your nails?  VERY CUTE.  Especially if you draw little footprints on your nails behind the charms and pretend they're hitching a ride.

Last but not least, Princesses Sally and Sarah Octopus, friends with the whale twins.  Look at their crowns! eeeeee.

The Verdict: OBVIOUSLY I'm biased here but I'm so happy with how the shop turned out.  I've been wanting to do something on the internet for such a long time and here we are.  Sparklies for everyone!!!!!!  Especially with a discount code of BLOGGYPANTS!

I also want to really really thank Chantelle.  She's my business partner in the Sparkly Shop and without her incredible organisational and packing skills, this totally wouldn't have happened.  I <3 you Chantelle!

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!

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

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?
