Reciprocal Black and White Gradient with Fancy Nail Vinyls from The Sparkly Shop

Imma pretend I haven't been a bad blogger who doesn't post much and instead focus on showing you something I'm proud of.  Many of you know I started a shop with a friend of mine a while ago, selling all the glitter and charms that magically accumulated at my home.  The Sparkly Shop is doing super awesome, especially with our monthly subscription boxes.   I want to keep everyone stocked in new and exciting things so I'm now making Fancy Nail Vinyls!  These Art Deco Wifi Symbols work really well in a reciprocal gradient.  Let's take a look, shall we?

So I started off with a gradient of cream to black, over the top of my point acrylics.  Once the gradient was done and the coat of Seche Vite was dry, I lay my stencil over my nail and applied the same gradient in reverse.  This is hardly a groundbreaking technique but I did make these vinyls myself so I think that's an achievement. 






The Verdict:  I love how these came out.  It's something completely different for me and getting out of my comfort zone is good for me.  Hooray for Fancy Vinyls!

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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
