Oh hi! I hope you're ready for this: I'm doing the 31 Day Nail Art Challenge! The wonderful Sarah at Chalkboard Nails totes talked me into joining in and of course I have to. I'm hoping it'll get me going more into blogging and not just being lazy and posting to instagram. Day 1 is red, so of course it's a case of redding all the reds! Onward!

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 pattern....eh. I have soooo many too, if you're interested..... NEONNNNNNNNN.

Laura is a happy Laura cos Laura has shiny dinosaur nails! Woo! I have fought long and hard with these metal whatevers and I finally defeated them. Which means I get dinosaur nails! They're even better when they're paired with a sparkly multichrome polish, even if it is brown. Rawr, I'm a Laurasaurus :D

TRIANGLES. TRIANGLES. THEY ARE AMAZING. Also, still surprisingly pleased with the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel polishes. SHINY. TRIANGLES. BAM.

Nail foils are so amazing in theory. Super shiny, super holo and really quick to do. However, as soon as you move or apply top coat, they die. Thus, the eternal quest to find a top coat that doesn't ruin the finish of the foils. I FOUND IT. Sally Hansen Miracle Gel top coat DOESN'T KILL FOILS. To prove it, I thought I'd have a go at doing nail foil stripes and it turned out awesome except for where I kept trying to cover up the gaps. SHINNIEEEESSSSSS! Oh and of course I need charms.

Can I just first up how grateful I am to everyone being so supportive of The Sparkly Shop? We've just passed our first monthaversary and it's just been amazing. So thank you! The triangle glitter sets though, hot damn. I had a feeling they might be popular just because you don't see it very often but the orders have been ridiculous! Since I did a full coverage one the other day, I thought I'd show you something you can do with it that doesn't take quite as much time.
