Reaching for a Glitterier World


♥ Welcome to Glittering Awesome, a blog of nail art, hair dye, hair dos, makeups, and general cutesy experiments. ♥
Lady K decided to stop flooding her blog with her attempts at these as she became more and more determined to learn glitter-lore, and lucky her, cause Lady H joined up in this cause and now brings her knowledge and experiments to the table too! There may even appear fashion advice over time!
We would love to accept and questions, advice, and even challenges you may wish to send our way, and encourage everyone to click that ask button!

Nails  Hair  101  How To  

We like asks :)

Neon Water Marble!  It was supposed to be tye dye, but I can’t really call the result tye dye enough to submit for the NOTW for such ;D  Either way, it’s SO BRIGHT it just overpowered my camera quite forcibly.  In the 3rd picture, for instance, there’s a whole lotta purple that you just… CAN’T SEE xD

Sitting in a hotel room.  No lamp, so no sculpted nails.  I decided to try using nail tips as entire nails.  Cut and filed and glued on, then a white base coat!  I was about to do a water marble, but liked how they came out just white :D

I did a bunch of scrubbing and messed up my rainbow trout tips, so I gave em a layer of pink opal on top and another layer of top coat—and a little purple fimo bow on the ring finger of each hand :D  Couldn’t get it to sparkle enough in any one picture—they’re SO SPARKLE.

I got a new box of tiny vials of glitters in a rainbow assortment of colors from Big Lots and tried out scale nails with super tiny hexagons—Blake says they look like Rainbow Trout :D   Clear base coat, pink opal layer, clear coat on a brush with glitter in arrow layers, then like three layers of top coat (I really need a thick top coat >.>)

(word to the wise:  check out the local dollar and chain thrift stores for those little vials you pay $3 for online and $10 in beauty stores and you can find them for $1 - $2 instead.)

So I washed my hands—and the sand-I-had-thought-was-clay-but-then-thought-was-sand turned out to be clay— BUT IT LOOKS MORE LIKE SAND NOW to me ;D

I’ve been wanting to try this sand idea foreeeever!  Got the sand out of one of those ‘Do Not Eat’ packets you find in shoe boxes like a year ago.  I’ve been figuring it would melt like clay in the polish, but apparently it’s actually sand granules!  :D   Used the saran wrap technique I used to make my Stargate nails last year for the ocean (always fun!)
I submitted these to the NOTW contest over at nailpornography :D Go vote if you like em ^_^

Wondering why I haven’t been doing as many braids lately?  Hairdresser Cat.  She’s been making every braid take at least twice as long.  Hard to get together a photo-worthy result. :/

Yellow and Red Nails / Red and Yellow Toenails

I fancy my toes being red more than any color I think (more than I fancy my nails being such too,) and so I painted them such.  Then I added some yellow gems (I don’t think there’re many cuter ways to do your small toes than with a single gem each!) 

Well then nothing would do but to have my nails be yellow with red gems since I was gonna do them at the same time :D  A silly 2AM kinda notion, I know, and I’m not sure I like the fingers as much as I like the toes, but entertaining none the less ^_^
