OH MY GOD what a pain in the arse these nails were to do. They don't look it but all the way along, pain, pain and suffering. First I tried to do white with blue stripes but it looked weird. Then I did this but the blue and white both bleed, but in different ways. Then I didn't clean up right and had to spend ages photoshopping the white bits off my fingers. Just urgh. Don't even get me started on the anchors. I've spent like hours on this for no reason, all because I like anchors and stripes. URGGHGHFGHGHGHGHG. Just squint when you look at these, ok? Looks more like how I want it then.

Ok so I loved those nails I did last weekend. Balls-out crazy pants, rendered me unable to get my shoes and actually woke me up because they got tangled together, and 100% amazing. These are it. I'm basically jelly that I can't do them again this week so I'm improvising and applied all my Hex Nail Charms. So much classier than last weekends' and coincidently the most expensive nails I've ever done. So yay for sticking all the charms!

Ok so for a while there I wasn't working. Love that, it's the best, cos sleeping is awesome. While I should have been using the time to pump out the nails, I used it to go through all 283 pages of the nail art supplies section of aliexpress.com. This site is really amazing, cos it's so cheap. You can get 10,000 rhinestones for $3. So I bought a bunch of 3D nail charms. I then decided it would be a good idea to put them all on at one. TACKYTIME YAY ADHERE ALL THE THINGS!

If you've seen the pictures of my full polish collection, it's hardly a secret that I like to buy polish. I'm also quite cheap so that means usually it's the cheap brands that I target. I don't know what it is, but Deborah Lippmann polishes just keep on being the exception. First Va Va Voom and now Glitter and Be Gay, they're just so awesome that it's worth paying the extra for them. Oh wait, they're sparkly, that's it, silly me. Let's take a look at this sparkly shall we?

Alrighty! It's been a little while since I've done a full set of mermaid nails and a trip to the One of a Kind show in Toronto this weekend is the perfect time to do them cos showing off and good lighting. The girls from Beyond the Nail had a stand and I had to go say hi. I love doing these mermaid nails, they're so sparkly despite the scratchiness. It makes me happy when I get can get all the little pieces around the edges to fit and it's all neat and nice and :D

One of the elements that spurred me on on this blog early on was the indie polish movement. Nerd Lacquer and Lacquistry were both creating the most sparkly, chunky, interesting, multifaceted and amazing polishes and I had to have them. Lacquisty especially was one of the first people to use huge and holographic glitter and you know how much I'm into that. They were followed by an avalanche of new brands and polishes and I just couldn't keep up. It's time to show you though why Lacquistry is still amazing cos LOOK AT THIS POLISH. I LOVE YOU JENNA AND PLEASE KEEP MAKING POLISHES.
I also got and started a new job this week!
