Bling-tastic Tuesday…or Wednesday Vol. 2

Well, I’m kind of disappointed. No feedback when I post eyeballs??? Maybe I’ll wait another 24 hours before I rant, LOL.

Disregarding that, I have more glitter for you! Last week’s glitter french manicure seemed to go over pretty well, so I actually did another one. This time the glitter on the tips was a little more obvious since I used OPI Absolutely Alice.

This was a Zoya Shimmer base under OPI Absolutely Alice tips.

But how boring would that be if that were the only thing I shared w/ you??? I felt guilty about not throwing in something new, so I’ve also got photos of one of my newest obsessions-flakies! (Of which I completely blame Nicole from Magic Maid for. See, she even admits to being my enabler here! LOL)

What are flakies you ask? They’re irregular shaped flakes of some opalescent material suspended in a non-colored base. The result when you layer it over a colored nail polish is like lighting it on fire! The light catches so many different colors as you move your hand around, it just completely transforms the base color. Lookie!

This was Nubar 2010 (flakie layer) over Orly Royal Navy.

Not impressed? Then clearly I need to do a better photography job the next time. B/c, oh, there WILL be a next time! Bwahahaha!…ok, now that the sleep deprivation has subsided, I claim that there will be more b/c I placed an order at FabulouStreet.com for more flakies w/ more, differenter (again, “That’s not even a WORD!”) opalescence. Confused? You won’t be after this week’s episode of…Soap! <—Whew! Sorry about that, the sleep deprivation is really setting in and I'll need to go to bed earlier today, but I just had to let that one out. Heehee!

Ok, well, that's all for now. I'll be working on that much promised polish application tutorial which I hope to publish at the end of this week/weekend.

Cheers for now, lovelies! 🙂
