Hot damn do I love neon studs.  I mean, look at how awesome they are and are.  And saying hot damn.  But mostly neon studs.  They have this awesome smooth texture and THEY FRICKING GLOW UNDER BLACKLIGHT.  The only way these could be more awesome is if they were somehow holo too but I think I can survive.  I really should come up with a new  I have soooo many too, if you're interested..... NEONNNNNNNNN.

I've tried a few different ways to stick these on and the best I've found so far is it slather on the top coat and just make sure each stud is pressed down firmly, without having the base polish overflow.  I like black for the contrast to the studs, so I started this off with two coats of China Glaze Liquid Leather.  Then, using Essence Top Coat - anything that isn't fast drying will do - I worked my studs.  Usual deal: start in the middle and do a column of studs, then work out each side.  I left the end pieces overhanging til I was done, then trimmed them off.  Same with the cuticle pieces.  Just use a small pair of scissors and you'll be right.  Oh, and HOLY BALLS, BLACKLIGHT.

The Verdict:  I think I like these 1.5mm x 5mm studs the most. Being so narrow they aren't affected by the curve of my nail and aren't so long that there isn't enough room for patterns.  WIN.

These particular size will be available on The Sparkly Shop on Friday!

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.
