Review: Lacquistry Golf Socks

I received a lovely parcel in the mail on Monday from Etsy store Lacquistry.  Even since, I've just had to try all the glitters as I've just never seen such large pieces of glitter in such interesting colour combinations.  I still haven't tried my biggest lemming, Deborah Lippman Across the Universe, as it just isn't glittery enough! 

Anyway, let's take a look at one of my personal favourites from Lacquistry, Golf Socks.  A dark blue jelly with blue and orangey-gold micro glitter and blue and gold HUGEMONGOUS glitter, Golf Socks is a real stunner.  I just love the colour combination and I can't recall the last time I saw something else like it.  The pictures that follow are one coat of one of my favourite Sally Hansen Navy Baby, followed by two coats of Golf Socks. 






Application for this one seemed a little easier than the other one I've tried, Winter No. 1. Maybe because this one doesn't have the bar glitter to get in the way, it just seemed easier to distribute the large pieces and the smaller glitters filled in the gaps.  Take a look at the mega close up, isn't it awesome?




The Verdict:  This is my favourite so far from Lacquistry.  It actually does remind me of socks!  The colour combo is wonderful and so sparkly, absolutely can't go wrong!

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!
