Well, I’ve started my web shop on Etsy! I’m at www.nevertoomuchglitter.etsy.com
I’m still really new to it and I have only one product up- a set of solid color vampies. I’m going to add some more products this evening after I get out of work! If it works out, I may also set up my very own web shop and sell directly. But for now, I’ll give Etsy a try.
I’m selling only press-on full cover nails at the moment- I used them for today’s franken! As you can see, they’re very natural looking. These are the exact same nails that you can buy at the delighful Nevertoomuchglitter store on Etsy. There’s now a link on the sidebar to my store. (OK, pitch over! I promised I wouldn’t make this blog commerical, and I’m not going to.)
Here’s an easy layer franken for today. First, I applied a black creme- any one is fine! Then, for the topcoat, I mixed half gold shimmer (dollar store, in my case) and half clear polish to get an antiquey-looking manicure. It’s a little streaky, but I wanted the black to show through under the gold, so I couldn’t do another coat of the gold.
This reminds me of forgotten gardens, overgrown with weeds- sort of a dreamy vintage color.
The tips are thin and slightly wider than my natural nails, and you can see they’re pretty short. I prefer the natural look rather than the long claws, but I know the over-the-top nails that look like Fritos are very popular as well. I’ll try to make some of those for the sake of variety, but I don’t like wearing them very much, so I tend to overlook them when I’m designing for other people.
