Sparkly Saturday #5 - Rhinestones, Brooch Bouquet Materials and Shirt Hunt

Did you see last week's episode of Sparkly Saturday?

I made some pretty exciting finds on Ebay and have gotten almost ALL of the materials I need to do a step by step brooch bouquet tutorial. I know, a long time coming - but you know, life happens. Random Nail Art happens. Things just go awry.

Anyways, enough about all that, here are my latest finds:


I'm on the hunt for some new shirts for summer! Do you have any stores that you think are a "must see" for fabulous shirts I may like? Tell me all about them!

Brown + Purple Glitter + Pearl White = 1 Weird #HePicksMyPolish Look

There's really only so much that can be done with a brown , a purple and blue glitter, and a pearly white polish that's nearly dried out.

But somehow, by nothing short of miracle, I've put something together for the April #HePicksMyPolish nail art challenge. If you aren't familiar with these challenges, check out THIS post to read all the details. I promise, it's as easy as it sounds. He picks the polish, you make it work! No using other polishes except clear coats.

Here's what I ended up with:

The most shocking element of this design (besides the odd colors) was that the brown polish, when marbled, almost had the fainest of green undertones. It looked remarkably weird fresh out of the water during the marble process.

The polishes my lovely Mr. choose this time around were:
Orly - "Buried Alive" (brown)
Me - Purple and blue glitter - a mix of my own making!
Sinful Colors - "Tokyo Pearl" (white)

I did the bulk of the marble design with the brown and white, and put the glitter in the center of each nails marble design. Pretty much where the most detail is, I tried to follow some of the most inner layers with glitter polish. It made sense in my head at the time.

Here's what other's have created for this month's challenge:
