Haul: THE FULL PRISMATIC COLLECTION!!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee has been the sound I've been making all night tonight as when I happened past my local beauty supply store they had just put out the new China Glaze Prismatic Collection!! After the bitter, bitter disappointment about the Finger Paints Special Effects, there was no way I could let this amazingly sparkly, duochromed collection pass me by!  

I'll be swatching these shortly but I just had to show you how pretty and complex they are in the flesh!




Left: Polarized and Right: Liquid Crystal

Left: Full Spectrum and Right: Ray-Diant

Left: Optical Illusion and Right: Prism

Optical Illusion: primarily green with alllll the glitter colours in there.  Medium duochrome. 

Prism: Mainly pink, again with all the coloured glitters.  Medium duochrome.

Ray-Diant: almost a gold colour with a total glitter rainbow.  No duochrome. 

Full Spectrum: also kinda pink but looks more different to Prism in person.  Strong duochrome, pink in the light and silver at the edges. 

Polarised: Silver with a glitter rainbow.  No duochrome. 

Liquid Crystal:  My favourite, complete duochrome rainbow with pink and blue coming forward, depending on the light.
The Verdict: Nothing much more to say other than EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE these are amazing! I haven't seen anything like it before, at least not tiny rainbow glitter in a duochrome base.  I can't wait to try these!

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.

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
