Review: Nicole by OPI Look at Me, Look at Me

Woo, new Nicole by OPI polishes!  Happening past Shoppers the other day, I was super excited to see new polishes!  They must have just put them out as they were release just a few days ago and happen to be Shoppers Drug Mart exclusives.  I was only really drawn to a silver/rainbow glitter called Look at Me, Look at Me.  From further away it could pass for just a silver foil/micro glitter but close up it has so many other colours.

First up, let's look at the application.  I'm actually wearing two coats of China Glaze Grape Pop under this polish but I'm not going to talk about that one as you can't even see it!  This is two coats and as you can see it's completely opaque in those coats.  Application was good, actually, with no dragging or bald spots.  It also dries nice and smooth which I love - I hate a rough texture.  




See all the other colours now?  On close up you can see that silver isn't even the main colour!  It's full of light blue glitters, along with reds and pinks.  I love polishes that change depending on how closely you look.





The Verdict:  I like this polish.  As it kinda just looks like a silver foil from far away, it loses a couple points but otherwise is nice and easy to work with.  I apologise though for reviewing a Shoppers exclusive!  If there's any interest, I might pick up a few that I might put on ebay with the "Buy it Now" option as I hate auctions :)

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?

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop.  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....


My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images!
To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle of …
