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?

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....


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????
