Review: Now This is How you Use Lacquistry Shredded!

You might have noticed over the past few days that I'm a little obsessed with Lacquistry polishes.  I just can't help it.  I look at all the boring, plain colours and they just haven't been inspiring me as much.  A black, shredded glitter on the other hand, yes please.

This initially started out being a review for China Glaze Papaya Punch.  However, the formula was really unpleasant to work with.  These pictures here are three coats and there are still bald spots!  It dragged at the cuticles, seemed too thick, all round not great.  Totally unlike all other China Glazes I've tried.  To make matters worse, when I tried to clean up the edges, it just bled orange all over my fingers.  Not again, if I can help it.  This is when I decided that it needed an aggressive, ballsy glitter gradient and what better than Lacquistry Shredded. 



Shredded was really good to work with. Easy to apply as lots came out with the brush on each application.  I used the three step glitter gradient I described here and I'm so happy with how this came out.  It's so bright, so bold, I was almost afraid to wear it to work and right now I have a fire coloured water marbled mani.  Side note, you have to read the next post, IT CAME OUT SO GOOD.





The Verdict:  Don't like Papaya Punch although I still like the colour, love Lacquistry Shredded.  It makes the best, aggressive glitter gradient ever.

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!
