Review: Winter No.1 from Lacquistry - Giant Glitter Ahoy!

As I talked about yesterday, I got a lovely couple of packages in the mail from the Etsy store Lacquistry.  I was drawn to these polishes as they all seemed to feature enormous pieces of glitter that I just had to see for myself.  Last night I tried out the first one, Winter No. 1.  

Winter No. 1 is a beautiful blue, wintery glitter bomb.  If it exists as a glitter in blue or silver, odds are it's in here.  Take a look at some of these pictures, it's just ridiculous!





As with all large sized glitters, application was a little tricky.  I started out with a blue base from Nina Ultra Pro in Blu Blaze.  This was the first time I've used this brand and I was really unhappy with it.  Streaky, cuticle-dragging, randomly matte-drying, just not nice.  It was late though so I left it on.  I'm not even going to show the bottle, urgh.  Moving on to the glitter itself, it wasn't too bad to apply.  You have to position the pieces of glitter quite carefully but there was enough going on that you didn't have to be too careful.  What you see here is two coats, with a coat of Seche Vite.




The Verdict:  I like this polish as it's something different.  I don't know if it was the way I applied it but I found it chipped reaaaaally fast.  It ended up being really thick which was probably the reason way but still a shame.  It's also rough to the touch but again, what are you going to do with such big glitter.  I absolutely loved the gigantic glitter though.  I'd definitely wear it again, super sparkly!

  1. I LOVE Winter No.1. It's one of my favorite Lacquistry polishes because it's so jammed full of glitter and I was able to wear mine for 6 days with no chipping! I wonder if the Nina Ultra Pro was the reason for the chipping? I used a China Glaze as my base. Your pics are gorgeous, as always!

    1. I'm sure it was my application as I had one Golf Socks for the same amount of time with no chipping or wear at all, actually.

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. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
