Sparkly nails with Girly Bits Razzle Dazzle and nail vinyls

Heys!!! Do you know how you sometimes have a polish that you really want to use but you have no clue what to do with it exactly? I love, love, LOVE my Girly Bits Razzle Dazzle because it's just so freaking sparkly! But if I'd want to paint on top of it, I'm afraid the art would get lost in the glitter... That's why I chose to go for nail vinyls! Check out the video tutorial too!

It's really easy to make, so I included a video tutorial for you guys. Do you love me now? Do ya? Do ya? I can't believe I didn't get a chance to take sunlight photos because this stuff just totally freakingly LIGHTS UP in the sunlight! I'm not even exaggerating, it is ah-mazing. Like diamonds. If you love sparkles, then this is a MUST HAVE polish. And I don't say that often! Except for when it comes to glow polishes. Because glows just float my boat <3 Hihi!

I got the nail vinyls from a nail mail buddy a while back, and she got them from the Nail Vinyls shop. I never know what to do with the french tip guides, since french tips look horrible on me. So this is a different way to use them...
And while looking up the link to the shop to include in this blog post, I got the funniest surprise! See, I bought this polish about a year and a half ago, along with some others. Maybe you remember, maybe you don't, but my blog was tiny back then. Most of you had never heard of me, my art sucked, and my pics sucked even harder. Which is why it was such a big surprise to open the Girly Bits shop, look at Razzle Dazzle and there. Was. MY PHOTO! That I included in this Girly Bits review from June 2013! It doesn't have my watermark on it, simply because I didn't have a watermark back then. I wasn't even called PiggieLuv yet (I celebrated my 1 year as PiggieLuv this past week, yay!). But I am honored, proud and touched to have my crappy picture used, hihi! And I just KNOW Pam is going to read this so Pam, thank you! If you ever need a better swatch, let me know! Haha ;-)
Okay maybe we should continue to the video tutorial. I know I'm using a lot of capitalized words in this blog post, but I'm just in that kind of MOOD, okay? Okay.

This stuff is eeeeeeasy! When your base color is fully hardened (I used a top coat to smooth out the glitter), apply your nail vinyls and make sure there are no bubbles anywhere. Apply polish over the whole nail, and quickly remove the vinyls while the polish is still wet. If there's a small mistake (because of a bubble for instance), you can fix it with a small brush dipped in remover (this is where the extra top coat comes in handy too). When you think it looks good, top coat and you're done!

Oh and I think this looks a bit like leg warmers from the 80's. Don't you?
