OMGWTFJSKDJSLDJ 24 COLOURS OF TEENY RAINBOW SQUARES AM DED

Ok! Long time no see, blah blah, look, new glitter!  CAN YOU EVEN WITH 24 DIFFERENT COLOURS OF 1MM SQUARES???!!? SPARKLY, SPARKLY SQUARES.  Seriously, the glitter is so sparkly and the squares nice and even, you can create even the most intricate patterns.  OMG I SHOULD DO MARIO.  Shh, pretend I didn't say that.  Anyway, shall we look at the newest glitter available at The Sparkly Shop?

Alrighty! So squares work just like hexes in terms of glitter placement.  You might say even easier because there's only two ways the pieces can be rotated, unlike hexes.  It would be nice to have perfect squares but when you're dealing with this scale, I'm not fussed they're slightly rectangular.  At least they're all the same amount rectangular!  I started here with my usual black base - two coats - then went to work with my usual slow top coat.  I'm still using Essence top coat because it's cheap and decent to work with.  Applying a thin stripe of TC down the middle of my nail, I started with my usual center column of glitter.  If you pay attention to the alignment and spacing in this first column, it's much easier to build out either side, following the same pattern.  Just keep at it, and make sure you top everything off with lots of top coat to seal everything in, 





The Verdict:  I love this glitter so much.  I didn't even think I could get this many colour variations so :D.  Plus sparklies.

1MM Square glitter is available from The Sparkly Shop, starting at $6.99.  Use SPARKLY10 to get 10% off your order!

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?
