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.

How has it taken me this long to realise that triangle glitter existed and that I should be all over it?? I'm silly. Anyway, it's a thing and it's amazing and I love it and it's so nice to have a change from hex glitter. It's so even and beautiful and matte and sparkly, there just aren't enough adjectives. Yeah so this is what it looks like when you mix 15 colours together on your nails. WONDERFUL THINGS. You might even be able to get this glitter too - it's going up on The Sparkly Shop this afternoon at 3pm. I swear though I just want to share the sparklies. Sorry for the self-promoting. Anyway, focus, glitter time!

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?
