It's hardly a secret how much I love sparklies. If it were at all practical, I would make my middle name Sparkly. Laura Sparkly Tucker. That does have a nice ring to it. Anyway, this adoration of all the sparklies means just about my favourite thing ever is dazzle glitter. It's like a bunch of tiny pieces of glitter were smushed together into a larger piece. And oh, so sparklies. I've done red and silver manis using this glitter before so that's the perfect excuse to use the pink. That makes sense, right?

So I conceptually get dotting tools. They're a good idea and some people have done amazing things with them but I just can't get a satisfactory result of them. The dots are never completely even. That's usually when I say screw it and use glitter. I LOVE YOU AND YOUR CONSISTENCY GLITTER. Especially circle glitter. And unicorns always make things better.

GLITTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTTAAAAAAAAAAAAAARRRRRRRRRRRRRRRR. I'm Australian so it's still aaaaaaar. It's been a while since I've done a good mermaid glitter placement so I did that. Some of the macro photos show why it's not the best idea to try to do glitter placements when you're tired cos they go a bit wonky but over, sparkly. So the question I get asked the most is where I get my glitter from. WELLLLL on Friday you can get some from me. At The Sparkly Shop. In very limited quantities because I may be a glitter hoarder but I'm not that much of a glitter hoarder. Also charms. Anyway, on to the pics!

I don't have quite the same volume of time free to do my nails I used to, because I now have to commute 20 whole minutes to get to work and I keep falling asleep at crazy early times. This usually results in me slapping on the nearest polish I can get away with two coats of and then accenting with as many charms I fancy at the time. Charms are the best for making your nails fancy with no effort what-so-ever. Yesterday I felt like wearing smiley-face charms with pineapples on top. It took stablenails on Instagram pointing it out that I'd inadvertently created minimalist Carmen Miranda nails. THIS PLEASES ME, THANK YOU STABLENAILS.

No matter how many times it kicks me in the face, I can't give up on watermarbling. It works just often enough that I blame myself for any errors and my faith in it working one day lives on. I got it to work though the other day and to celebrate I slapped on teeny sparkly lizards. Only the best celebrations for me!

I always have high hopes for my nails but sometimes, things just come out more awesome that I expected. I've had these hex studs for a while - it was quite the revelation when I found out they existed by the way - and the obvious thing to do is do a full coverage mani with them. Especially given they're surprisingly easy to cut which makes my life a lot easier. Shall we?
