Anyway, shall we look at the newest glitter available at The Sparkly Shop?

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me. The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great. The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down. I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES. THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop... But we're here for this rainbow today. LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

Imma pretend I haven't been a bad blogger who doesn't post much and instead focus on showing you something I'm proud of. Many of you know I started a shop with a friend of mine a while ago, selling all the glitter and charms that magically accumulated at my home. The Sparkly Shop is doing super awesome, especially with our monthly subscription boxes. I want to keep everyone stocked in new and exciting things so I'm now making Fancy Nail Vinyls! These Art Deco Wifi Symbols work really well in a reciprocal gradient. Let's take a look, shall we?

Oh hi! Did you have a good holiday/break time thing? I did. I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing. So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too. I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them. My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term. Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling! With gold unicorns! Cos they go with everything! Woo!

Ever have those days where you just can't make up your mind? Of course you have. That's me with these nails. This is the first time I've tried a glitter placement on pointy nails and it's surprising how much the shape can affect a gradient. I was going to go with the gold-green-blue gradient but then the black and white was cool and then I'm like ooo purple and stuff whatever. At least the glitter is good. Let's take a look at Rainbow Indecision Nails, shall we?

Ok so I've been trying something a little different lately. The acrylic tips I've been applying let me get the length I've aspired to without having to actually get my nails there naturally. I'm ok with this. Some of us just get to have super long nails with no traumatic breaks and some don't. Since I now have the tools, I thought I'd give a different nail shape a go and it turns out slightly rounded claws are awesome and give me all kinds of room and inspiration to try different things. Thus, fiery mermaid scale nails!
