Literally the Sparkliest Polish Ever

For my first post I thought I would start with a polish I found today.  My favourites are always glitters as I swear I have a patch of neurons in my brain that only light up for sparklies.  I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw this one, it is literally the most sparkly polish I own.  

The following photos are with one coat of OPI I Want to be A-Lone Star and three coats of Claire's Glitter Topcoat.  The holographics are amazing in here too, with a full linear appearance despite the large glitter size.  It may be full of chemicals but I'll take the risk for something that looks this awesome. 

Without futher ado, check out the photos below!




I'm just starting out with this blog, I'd love to hear any and all feedback on if you like lots of pictures, description, etc.  Thanks for reading!

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails.

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop.  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....


My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images!
To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle of …
