Review: Finally, finally, Finger Paints Special Effect Flecked!

OMG guys, I finally got a hold of one of the Finger Paints Special Effects!  Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!  Ahem, excuse the excitement but I don't cope especially well when I want something and it's magically sold out and you can't buy it anywhere, as is the case with Special Effects collection from Finger Paints.  It's an embarrassingly long time to the one and only Sally Beauty store in Toronto and I made it three times to see if they had these, to be told the first two times that they'll totes be getting them in and then the last that one person bought two cases and they're sold out.  You can't even buy these online, save for a ridiculous ebay auction.  My wonderful friend Other Laura (as I'm Laura) managed to find me a bottle while in the States and omg is this pretty. 

Flecked is a flake glitter top coat, with pieces shifting from blue to green.  I have a couple of other other flakies like Shine of the Times but was always a little put off by the orange-green shift.  This, on the other hand, so pretty.  What you see in the pictures below is two coats of my favourite black, Rimmel Black Satin followed by two coats of Flecked.  Dammit, I love this look.  The colour shift is so strong from blue to green and just keeps catching the light. 







See how even straight on you can see all the different colours?  I'm a fan of how thin the glitter, sitting so flush with the nail.  Mmmm, pretttty.




The Verdict:  Seriously, buy this if you see it.  It's so pretty, applies well and shifts strongly from green and blue, no orange to be seen!  Oh, and if you do buy it, please only buy the one, save some for us!  If any of you do happen to come across it, could you please shoot me an email at laura at polishallthenails dot com?  I'll happily buy it off you + shipping and you'd make me so happy!

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????
