Cobalt Blue and Super Sparkley: Sally Hansen Co-balt Blue and Such a Go-Glitter

I had a little free time the other night so I thought I'd give a favourite glitter another go-around.  Nicole by OPI Such a Go-Glitter is quite unique with tons of tiny blue glitters, interspersed with sparkly holo particles.  The glitter is so thick I just had to check if the base was clear or blue too!  I've tried this one a long time ago over Sally Hansen Navy Baby but I thought I'd give a brighter blue, Sally Hansen Co-balt Blue, a shot. 




As you can see, the cobalt is a really beautiful colour.  I'm always fond of blues but this one was rich and multi-dimensional.  This is two coats.



Next, we have two coats of the glitter.  Look how much it sparkles when the camera is out of focus!  It's really the only way I've found that really highlights just how glittery this one comes out.  It's not the greatest match with the cobalt as the glitter is just too much of a match with the base colour.  Over something darker the blue glitter stands out more.




The verdict:  these are both great polishes.  I've been really impressed lately at how cheaply you can pick up the Sally Hansen range and the colours are good.  I do love a holo glitter too!

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?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

Neon Color Club Watermarbling with Gold Unicorns!

Oh hi!  Did you have a good holiday/break time thing?  I did.  I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing.  So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too.  I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them.  My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term.  Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling!  With gold unicorns!  Cos they go with everything!  Woo!
