Review: Model's Own Golden Green with LA Girl Uninhibited

I've been looking at the Model's Own Beetlejuice line for a while now and am finally rounding out the collection.  As I can't seem to leave a mani alone, I tried out the fabulous black glitter LA Girl Uninhibited!

Golden Green is a duochrome switching between gold and green, funnily enough.  I wasn't super impressed with it actually.  It's really sheer going on so you need at least three coats going on.  It also seems to take a long time to try and is easy to mess up.  Finally, it really isn't much of a duochrome going on.  It's pretty much just all green, all the time.  


You can see all the foil particles here.  I do like macro mode!

Given I was not especially impressed with Golden Green on its own, I decided to add a glitter gradient using LA Girl Glitter Addict in Uninhibited.  I'm a lot happier with the colour now!  Uninhibited is one of the few black glitters out there and you can create some really interesting effects with it.  




The Verdict: Golden Green?  Meh.  I may not be the biggest fan of greens but I had high hopes for this one  and was disappointed.  Uninhibited though is great and I can see this looking really good with a range of colours.

Bonus Tutorial: Quick tip on how to apply a glitter gradient.

  1. Apply base colour
  2. Paint the glitter colour three quarters of the way down your nail in a thin coat.
  3. Repeat step two but stopping half way down your nail
  4. Add another thin coat a quarter of the way down.
  5. Finish with a top coat. 
  6. Done!

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????
